Rowing is one of the best compound exercises you can do. Not only does it blast the huge muscle groups of the legs and back and core, it incorporates all of the smaller muscle groups as well, like the arms.
Row Like A Pro With Or Without Rowing Gloves
Most gloves for rowing are basically bulky weight lifting or workout gloves. They tend to make your hands get even sweatier. So the tradeoff may be hand protection to protect against blisters, but is it worth it if you really don't want to be wearing gloves? GymPaws® have long been a favorite among both professional and amateur athletes who incorporate rowing into their regular workouts. The ergonomically designed slightly padded leather palm fits snuggly in the palm of your hands protecting against callus causing friction. Four finger loops keep them in place so you don't have to worry about them falling off or compromising your grip.
One Of The Best Rowing Workouts
We call this the 1.000 Meter Fat Blaster because it's going to raise your heart rate and get you into the far burning zone. After a 5 to 10 minute warmup on an easy setting, increase the resistance to medium. In the 1,000 Meter Fat Blaster you'll be doing 3 intervals. The distance does not change however the SPM (strokes per minute) will.
The first set of the workout is 28 SPM, bust out 1,000 meters at this speed. Break for 30 seconds with an easy row / glide and start your second rep of 1,000 meters at 24 SPM. Give yourself another short rest (no longer than 30 seconds) and bust into your third set at 26 strokes per minute.
