Interested In The Benefits Of Rowing Equipment

By Heather Peters

There are so many reasons why using indoor rowing machine are excellent for your heath. In this brief article I want to show you why I really believe in rowing for better fitness and increased muscle tone and fat loss.

If your over thirty years old, like me, then rowers are probably your best option for keeping yourself fit and healthy without risking injury. They give you a fantastic full body workout for your legs, back and upper body whilst also providing one of the best cardio workouts that you can do.

Using this fitness equipment will make you feel great, look great and perform at your best. I find that after working out I feel refreshed and the next morning I wake up on the dot and jump out of bed filled with energy and passion for life.

Another fantastic benefit is that you can use these indoor rowers to lose weight very easily. The are excellent for burning calories and stripping off fat so if your a little overweight, then I recommend you start using them right away.

But why use a rowing machine and not some other fitness equipment?

Whilst machines like exercise bikes and treadmills are good, they only work your lower body. With rowers you get a full body exercise whilst also getting the many cardio benefits too. This makes it one of the best all around pieces of equipment that you can get to both keep fit and in shape.

The motion that is performed by the user when rowing is fantastic for strengthening every muscle and joint in your entire body. Moreover, your body will burn through calories which will strip of unwanted fat and also build up your muscle tone giving you a great looking body.

One more benefit of using a rowing machine is that you train your entire trunk musculature, ie the stomach and upper and lower back. Fitness experts are in complete agreement: the training of the trunk has many advantages – from a stronger back to an upright posture.

Another great benefit is that rowing machines really do a great job at building up your upper body like your chest, shoulders and arms. You may have seen the physic of rowers with they’re strong muscular shoulders and massive arms.

The fantastic thing about how these machines build your body, is that they trainer your muscles to work together in harmony with one another, Rather than working the single muscle groups like a bodybuilder, you work all your muscles. This is better in my opinion if you would like usable strength and don’t care about getting massive looking muscles. Whilst bodybuilders just care about the look, half of there muscle is actually completely useless!

The production of red blood cells gets stimulated, which in turn ensures that your muscles are provided with an increased level of oxygen.

You will discover better sleep. Physical exertion after exercising helps your body to calm down at night.

If you are thinking about buying your own rower than you should really do the proper research before you lunge in. There are many phony brands that provide awful rowing machines with no support or warranty, so shop around, read reviews and take your time to come up with the model that you’d like to buy.
