The best way to describe Water Rowing is high intensity, without the impact. Water Rowing is an excellent full body workout that can help you burn calories faster than other cardio workouts without putting excess strain on your joints. On a WaterRower, you can exercise at home or at the gym while listening to the soothing sounds of water.
Here are a few reasons we love the WaterRower!
High intensity, without the impact
Rowing is a highly effective workout that can help you to burn fat. In fact you can burn up to 1,000 calories per hour and improve your body composition.
Water rowing is kinder on your joints than other forms of cardio, but the intensity is not compromised so you can burn just as many calories, without straining your joints. Rowing removes body weight from the ankles, hips and knee joints, so we are protecting them from injury, wear and tear.
Effective full body workout
WaterRower is one of the most effective full body workouts you can do. During the rowing stroke 60% of the power comes from your legs. The rest comes from your core and arms (25% and 15%, respectively). Almost every single muscle contributes to the movement.
Promotes heart health
WaterRower has been proven to improve your cardiovascular fitness much more effectively than other exercise machines. In fact, studies have shown that regular rowing can dramatically boost heart function and structure, helping to drive athletic performance.
Simply good for you!
Exercise has been shown to release mood-enhancing hormones called endorphins, which can fight the effects of stress.
There are lots of options open to you if you want to do more cardio, but rowing arguably offers the most benefits in terms of reducing stress. The smooth, flowing action of the WaterRower is soothing and calming. If you’ve had a hectic day, it can be therapeutic to clear your mind and focus only on the rhythm of the strokes on your WaterRower.
