Working out with aWaterRower rowing machine is a great way to burn calories, improve your cardiovascular fitness and tone up many of your major muscles. Because rowing is low impact, it is ideally suited for exercisers who are concerned about knee pain from activities such as running. To get the most from using a rowing machine, make sure you use good technique and seek expert guidance from a personal trainer or rowing coach if you are unsure how to row properly.
The WaterRowerwill work all your important muscle groups, but some will be more noticeable than others. Your legs, back, core, shoulders and back will be targeted when you use a rowing machine on a regular basis.
LatissimusDorsi: Extension of your arms when you release the tension of a rower handle bar happens to be controlled by this muscle. It is partially covered by the trapezius muscle and happens to cover the mid to lower back area.
Trapezius: When you pull back on the handlebars of the WaterRower, you are utilizing this muscle. The trapezius is responsible for stabilizing and controlling the neck and the shoulder blades.
Rhomboids: These are the muscles that help the trapezius in pulling back the shoulders and is found in between the spine and shoulder blades.
Deltoids: The whole rowing motion can work the deltoid muscles, especially on releasing the handlebars of the WaterRower. These are the shoulder muscles that are connected to the humerus, shoulder blade, and collar bone and happen to be a very important part in the range of motion for your arms.
Triceps: After you pull the handles towards your body, your triceps will take over when you begin releasing and extending your arms.
Biceps: These are the muscles that are located in the front of your upper arm. They are used when you bend your arms at the elbow when you are pulling the handlebars of the WaterRower toward you.
Gluteus Maximus: This is the muscle that is worked in the motion of rowing, but it tends to be worked less than your major leg muscles.
Quadriceps: These muscles are located in the back of your upper leg, and are mainly worked when your knees are bent on the way back to the starting position.
Hamstrings: These happen to be the largest muscles that are in your legs and are used at the beginning of the rowing motion when you are pushing your body backwards from the base of the WaterRower.
Erector Spinae: This is the muscle that is very important to your lower back, which also happens to be one of the most common areas to be injured. This muscle is worked when you are bending and straightening your back as well as when your legs are bending and pushing.
Obliques: These particular muscles are located on the sides of your midsection and are also used when you are stabilizing your body so that you are straight instead of twisting.
Abs: While your rower is meant to target your legs, arms and back, any type of full body motion will always work your abdominal muscles. When you are bending your body slightly forward and then straightening up, your abs are being constantly used.
