Buy rowing machines for effective fitness training
Train like the pros at home with a rowing machine
Rowing machines have long been popular with home athletes, even before they were featured on the US television series "House of Cards." Kevin Spacey, who plays the politician Francis Underwood, uses this kind of home training device in several episodes. Doctors and fitness instructors are well aware of the benefits – even compared to the highly popular cross trainer:
Fitness for the whole body
During training, all major muscle groups are worked. 60 percent of the energy comes from the legs, 40 percent from the upper body.
Strengthen the back muscles
Back problems are among the most common human afflictions. Training with the rowing machine effectively helps your back muscles.
High calorie consumption when rowing
Depending on the speed and difficulty, you can burn up to 600 kcal per hour.
Joint friendly training
Rowing is much easier on the joints than other types of sports, like jogging. This makes it suitable for young and old, to increase endurance and stay fit. Statistics show that just 15 minutes of endurance training every day can increase the life expectancy, and a rowing machine is ideal.
Operating a rowing machine
In addition to rowing machines, there are also rowing ergometers. Both have resulted from athletes attempting to imitate the rowing motion of a row boat in the water. It is recommended that beginners be instructed by a competent qualified person or a coach when first using these machines.
Basically, there are two ways in which indoor rowers work:
The cable pulley system
Users sit on a rolling seat and use their strength for training. The legs push the body backwards. In the end position, the legs should be straightened, but not fully extended. Then the user rolls forward: they stretch their arms forward again.
The 2-bar system
Bars are attached to the left and right for ergonomic posture. During training, these move elliptically back and forth.
Many AsVIVA devices have a training computer. This provides information about the training time, the performance during training, the calorie consumption and many other factors. The resistance is provided by friction, air, magnetism or water. The pulling power ranges from 40 to 200 kilograms – depending on the model.
Finding the right rowing machine model
Rowing machines all have one thing in common: they increase your health and well-being when used regularly. AsVIVA models are available for beginners, advanced users and competitive athletes. As a rule, the price also increases with the level. This is because the loads a rowing machine has to endure are much higher when used by competitive athletes. For these machines, sturdier materials are used, which give the device consistent stability even when used under professional conditions.
