Don't know maybe you there are that they weren't that obvious because obviously a couple of days actually caught him by surprise. And i was like. Oh yeah. I suppose this is true but get into anyway. The first benefit is that it's so bird. low impact. No brainer right. I told you some of these obvious. And this is why net but but this benefit is great for so many reasons and because roadway is non weight bearing meaning. You're not any weights. This makes it suitable for people with certain joins us. So if you've got arthritis or if you're like me had experienced your share spring and toys the knees now you can feel the change in weather before the weatherman does your these quote unquote aches and pains like they can really make it extremely difficult for you to engage in high calorie burn slash high impact workouts. Like running p look who has a history of ankle and knee itchen certainly certainly benefit from adding machine machine workout into their fitness routine. Adds up at its. It's also important to use the right form and technique when ruins you avoid injury in the first place you know that's more or less. That's a huge reason by working to begin with. You're trying to become stronger in and reduce your injury especially if you have a history of lower back issues. If you're new to rowing up getting some guidance from a fitness professional aka a personal trainer before using the roller you have to remember that just like most exercise machines you know too much of anything when using poor techni will eventually result engine so you to use them. She say because let's face it. This is important the second benefit of rocio workout. His it's versa. Time i mean running machines. Giving the opportunity to perform will high intensity interval training workouts but also great for endurance training through say cardio training so be able to both types of workouts. You know the hit and the steady state cardio You know this gives you a super super efficient workout middle time and the cardiovascular benefits of a rowing machine workout whether whether you're doing a hit workout war longer slower session. The benefits are nearly unparalleled. Their unmatched be like this piece of machinery and the workouts that you can do with it. These are pretty much open to a large variety of people late. You can get a wide variety of people of different ages and different sizes doing the fishing cardio swept building calorie shredding workouts. On that you know and again these workouts are more or less of zero impact format perfect for people with joint issues and stuff like that and so busy on this calorie shredding holy is number green or benefit number free of calorie melting. You know so simply put you easily burnt out some serious calories in this you know all this battles and remember that one. The number one tisch to losing weight and easily sliding a two year japhet. This is calorie deficit. You know so if you're able to torch and melt a serious amount of calories in a minimal amount of time and hey why not do it am i right. You know engaging all the muscles in your body increases your artery and this provides a top notch cardio workout. That's similar to what you might experience swimming vigorously like michael workout. Just thinking about the some ribbed. Starting at the end of the month actually lose supposedly the fastest swimmer in the world right now like now. The michael phelps retired. He's like the new. Michael phelps can't remember eczema the hell on it. I don't want to veer off topic too far here but we're talking about rolling being a top notch cardio workout honestly as thing you know since a rowing machine workout targets of large muscles of the lower body of burn those calories quaker period and the discussion. Now that being said just exactly how many calories you burn burn your workout while that will obviously depend on the intensity of the workout anger week so there was a harvard medical school report that was published with some estimates in his publication and so according to their report one hundred twenty five pound person rowing at moderate intensity on a stationary. Rowing machine can easily burned two hundred and ten calories in thirty minutes. That's just moderate intensity. Think about that. A one hundred fifty five pound person can expect the burn about two hundred and sixty calories is eight time at moderate intensity and a one hundred eighty. Five pound person will torch up to three hundred and eleven calories in half an hour at moderate intensity. I suppose that's why. When i get up on there that just over two hundred and ten pounds. I get on there and i saw rookie. Rubbishy that calorie count goes up pretty hot and i'm only on there for maybe about fifteen minutes or so. These burn rates are identical to what you can expect the burn when using a stationary bike again at moderate pace. Increase the intensity. And you know. And you'll increase the galleries. Her in the same amount of time and what school though is that. Some rowing machines will actually let you program computer on it to alert you. When you reach a certain number of calories it you get a little alert. Let's is pretty cool. You could make for a nice little party and No precise work. You want to up warm up or hit exactly. I dunno by six seven hundred calories that drum roll the she can actually help. You hit that number exactly. It also helps you know exactly when you burned off that slice of pizza from lunch or if you want. We've dull jr with your buddies later on the name comfort benefits number four. It's a full by workout now. There seems to be a misconception or better said he perception. I suppose that rowing is at all out the upper body arms shoulders will definitely benefit. And you know. They're likely to get strong told him whatnot. But it's even better core and lower body workout. If you're performing you know the rolling exercises the right way. That's you know. I hope you argued that right right. You know that's because the power of the stroke actually comes from gluts and your core arms leader and so while rowing definitely boosts your lower body straight also builds up your other body most those unlike some of the other more common pushing exercises so movements like push ups and base prizes. They were the push movement and rowing works. Opole which ten i mean. This can balance out that muscle development for a better overall training and reduce injuries. That were all laugher since works the opposite muscles ball a plane rather than a pushing. You know you get a more well rounded workout if you recuperate both movements out there if you try to add a rowing machine.
