How to Get a Solid Workout With the Rowing Machine

How to Get a Solid Workout With the Rowing Machine | Fitness Trends | Scoop.it
Don't you hate it when you're at the gym and every cardio machine is occupied? All, but one...the rowing machine. Boost your endurance and get a solid workout with these tips.

 

You walk into the gym at peak hours. It's evening, so the place is packed. Every piece of equipment has a 30-minute wait.

 

Then you see it, in the far corner, facing the wall, completely neglected by everyone trotting mindlessly on the treadmills. The rowing machine sits there collecting dust, just daring you to take a ride.

 

The good news is that in the 30 minutes you'd spend waiting for another piece of equipment, you can get a full-body, high-intensity workout on the rowing machine, or ergometer, as it's commonly referred to by rowers.

Mid-lifers who want to be active in their 70s, 80s should be hitting the gym now

Mid-lifers who want to be active in their 70s, 80s should be hitting the gym now | Fitness Trends | Scoop.it
No one likes to think about getting old and we generally don't do much to prepare for it. But the truth of the matter is that if you are lucky enough to live into your 70s, 80s and beyond, your fitness level is going to decline.

 

Some of it comes down to unstoppable biology. But how much and how fast you lose muscle, bone, flexibility and aerobic capacity is also influenced by your individual fitness level going into older age.

 

So if you want to be sprightly in your 70s, you need to be working out in your 40s, 50s and 60s, experts say.
