There are few exercise tools that can truly provide a full-body workout. Rowers NZ, however, are about as close as you can get. Rowing machines are said to date back to the mid-1800s, but modern incarnations of this tool are likely more advanced than the original inventors would have ever imagined.

Why Work Out With a Rower?

Working out with a rower is one of the most intensive exercise routines you can experience. This is because they work out nearly every part of your body — your arms, hamstrings, glutes, core, and quads, to be specific. This workout is particularly beneficial because it’s also low impact, meaning that your joints sustain minimal pressure while you exercise. Selections like the York Turbine Rowing Machine are a great option for pros and beginners alike.

How Do I Use a Rower?

It’s important to wear comfortable women’s strength training shoes while you’re operating a rower. The right shoes and the right women’s compression clothing can make your workout more comfortable. To use a rower such as the York Perform 220 Rower, you need to keep your back straight and your shins vertical. Push back with your lower body and then pull your hands in towards your chest with your upper back.
