Rowing Machine Resistance Types:

Water Rowing Machines:
The most comparable home workout to on-water rowing, the resistance in water rowers is created by a flywheel within a water-filled tank. These rowers tend to be costlier but are also sturdier, more durable, and boast a higher weight capacity than others.

Air Rowing Machines:
Air resistance rowers feature a flywheel designed to offer increased air resistance the faster it spins. This design introduces more variability into a rowing session and thus more closely simulates an outdoor rowing experience.
Shop Air Machines
Magnetic Rowing Machines:
Magnetic rowers use electromagnets to create resistance and require you to preset levels before beginning. Although they offer a less lifelike simulation than air or water rowers, magnetic rowers allow for a quiet and steady workout.

Piston Rowing Machines:
The simplest and least expensive option, most piston rowers offer multiple resistance levels so you can pre-set your desired level. Portable, lightweight, and smaller in size, these rowers are ideal for small spaces.

The Benefits and Basics of Rowing at Home

While rowing machines have been enjoying a surge in popularity thanks to fitness programs such as Crossfit and HIIT (high-intensity interval training), you don't need a fancy gym membership to reap the benefits of this low-impact, full-body cardio workout. Simply find the model of rowing machine that best suits your needs, then row, row, row your way to a healthier you!

Why all the rowing machine buzz?

So, what's so great about rowing? There's a reason this nautically-inspired workout has seen such a resurgence in the fitness community as of late, and it has to do with the total-body benefits of the exercise. Rowing combines the best of calorie-burning cardio with upper- and lower-body resistance training to increase your heart rate and strengthen your muscles.

As an added benefit, rowing manages to target muscle groups that might get overlooked during other resistance exercises—such as the hands and wrists—in addition to major muscle groups like the back, legs, and core. And for those who suffer from joint problems or can't perform weight-bearing exercises, the natural, low-impact motion of rowing puts minimal stress on the joints while still providing heart-healthy aerobic exercise. Plus, rowing burns about ten calories for every minute of exercise—that's around 600 calories in an hour-long workout!

So how do I do start a rowing regime?

The beauty of rowing as an exercise is that it requires minimal athleticism and only the most basic levels of coordination. Here are the basics:

• Sit at the rowing machine with your back upright, arms extended, shoulders down, knees bent, and feet securely strapped into the panels. You'll be using the balls of your feet to do most of the work, so remember to keep your knees and ankles flexed.

• Hold the oar with a light, relaxed grip. About 80 percent of your power when rowing should come from your lower body and core, so there's no need to hang on for dear life. Place your hands toward the outside of the oar and let your pinky fingers gently float off the end, with thumbs resting on top rather than wrapped underneath.

• Push through the balls of your feet until your legs are straight. Once they are, hinge at your hips and lean back about 45 degrees, pulling the oar toward your torso. The oar should end up just below your chest—near the top of your ribs, or where the band of a sports bra ends.

• To finish the move, straighten the arms back out, hinge forward at the hips until your torso is slightly over your legs, and bend the knees until you're back in the starting position. That's all there is to it! Try rowing at a consistent pace for a set amount of time, or set a goal by distance.
