Rowing is a long-distance water sport in which athletes race against each other in boats propelled by oars. It can be enjoyed casually or competitively, whether alone or with others. The primary focus is on mastering technique and training to take part in national and international championships, but it’s also a great way to keep fit and have fun in the outdoors.
Rowing is a low-impact aerobic activity done either with an ergometer machine or on the water. Rowing can be either gentle or intense, depending on your goals for the session.
Rowing’s appeal stems from the fact that it involves all parts of the body – arms and legs are used to propel yourself along, while core strength is required to maintain good form and posture on the machine.
Rowers can burn around five calories a minute, making it great for weight loss. The maximum number of calories burned during rowing is 600 in an hour, so you’ll have to increase the intensity if you want to lose more weight.
