Q1. What are some of the rowing machines exercises?
While using a rowing machine, there are basic exercises or strokes that you can perform for a low-intensity workout. These are catch, drive, finish, and recovery. A stroke begins with the catch position where you sit on the machine as close to the edge of the seat as possible, bending your knee. It will compel you to sit up straight and elongate the spine and work on the core.
Next, strap the widest part of the foot into the foot stretchers to put the weight on the feet and press hard on the toes during the drive. Move the handlebar quickly into the chest and create momentum from the legs, hinging at hips. Finish by slowly moving your hands back to the catch position keeping the knees and legs straight. It should be done until the handlebar goes over the knees. It is recovery where your body should follow the handlebar movement while the seat slides forward until the knees are at the catch position.
Q2. How do you choose a suitable rowing machine?
There are some things to consider if you wish to buy rowing machines. Firstly, think about the mechanism. Water, magnetic, hydraulic, and air resistance have their advantages and disadvantages. Each also comes with a different price range based on the amount of benefit they offer. The next thing to consider is the size. You should have enough space in your home or wherever you want to work out before buying the machine. Rowing machines come in different sizes as well for every kind of space.
