The WaterRower rowing machine is a machine used for training purposes of simulate rowing on the water. Water rowing is one of the noble sports that originated in the United Kingdom. In order to prevent the weather from restricting athletes rowing training, the indoor rowing machine was invented.
Low load does not hurt the knee
The principle of the rowing machine is very simple, use the resistance of water or wind to simulate the feeling of power when rowing. Because the whole movement is seated, it can reduce sports injuries and be softer and smoother. So the rowing machine exercise is very suitable for people with bad knees or old joint injuries, and even the elderly can do this type aerobic exercise.
Unlike running, rowing machine exercise has no human weight impact and doesn't hurt your knees. The joints have almost no sense of load and can consume a lot of energy at the same time.
Regular use of rowing machine exercise can effectively enhance the function of the human cardiovascular system and respiratory system, develop the strength of the whole body muscles and increase endurance.
The remarkable features of the rowing machine: it can burn up to 800-1000 calories per hour, and almost all muscles are required to participate in rowing exercises at the same time, and about 84% of the muscles of the body are exercised at one time.
The conclusion of the maximum exercise test under different fitness equipment is that the rowing machine can produce higher energy consumption with a lower heart rate and higher oxygen uptake, and can promote physical fitness to exercise the muscles of the whole body to achieve an ideal body sculpting effect.
The research compares various fitness equipment, and after the maximum exercise test, it is concluded that the rowing machine is significantly better than other fitness equipment for one hour: 1 rowing machine is approximately equal to 1 treadmill + 1 elliptical machine + 1 abdominal muscle board.
When doing rowing exercise, the muscles of the whole body can be involved in the exercise, the upper and lower limbs have been effectively exercised, and the effect of whole body movement has been achieved.
