Rowing Machine – Work It Out

Jack loved his job. He used to spend each day sitting at home, in front of the computer. All work and no play made him a dull boy. He started putting on weight. After realizing, he could do nothing about it, but regret as it was too late. He had no time to visit the gym so he decided to buy a rowing machine. Now he could work out at his home. We all can relate to Jack’s story. In today’s world, it is very important to remain fit and healthy. It not only gives you confidence and positivity, but also a glowing personality.

The rowing machine is also called an Ergometer. It is used for indoor exercises and is an effective way to measure work and burn calories.

Let’s dive deep

There are four types of rowing machines. They are:

  • Air
  • Magnetic
  • Water/fluid
  • Hydraulic piston machines

Incomplete knowledge is dangerousAir rowers are caught on among the determined rowers who practice unseasonably. The spinning flywheel of the rower provides resistance, which in turn creates wind when the handle is pulled. They are adjustable, the resistance can be adjusted whenever you want. But these are machines that can be noisy. Hydraulic piston machines are nowadays out of fashion. They leak, can have dead spots, are unreliable and cost you high maintenance charges. The high resistance and time-consuming solutions are the reasons for them to be outdated. Besides this, they cost you cheap. It is advisable to not use air rovers and hydraulic piston machines if you live in a flat and want to avoid raising the roof of your neighbors.

The magnetic and water rovers are a good choice but can cost you an arm and a leg. You can afford them with a high budget. Water rovers are the latest in trends, larger in size and uses water and paddles for resistance and smooth action. The maintenance cost is low and the inharmonious sounds can be refrained. Magnetic rowers are most popular and a better option to workout at home. Their small size and little maintenance are the reasons for its popularity.

Making a good choice

One should not waste good mistakes by not learning from them. If you buy the inappropriate thing, it can result into an expensive mistake. Look out for these features before opening your wallet.

It should be a resistance type. Magnetic and Air rovers are best examples of this type. The rest are likely to leak.

The seat-rail, length is one of the main points of concern if you are tall. Select one with smooth metal-alloy rail.

The metal foot plates should be made of metal and not plastic.

Avoid using chain systems as they produce sounds which can be harsh on the ear. Instead, a belt system does the work for you.

The computer console should display your workout details and be automatic with manual override for the resistance.


There are different products on sale ranging in price, size, quality and results. People usually compromise on quality for price. One can have different outlooks towards a same thing, but there is always a good choice and bad choices. It is based on many factors like the features of the product, quality, reliability and efficiency.

The prices can vary widely. Those costing less than $500 are very basic with no console while those ranging between $500 and $1000 are standard rovers with a sheer console. The higher priced ones last longer while cheaper ones need frequent servicing. The excellent rovers range between $1000 to $2000 while the premium ones cost you more than $2000. Some people prefer the cheap ones for temporary use where the money can be recovered by selling, while others buy for long time use. Different sizes are designed for different floorings and heavyweight users.

Are You Well-Equipped?

With the fitness boom on an upsurge, the market is exploding with exercisers promising to slim you down, build you up, boost your energy levels – give you Total Fitness in short.

Does such a dream exerciser exist? The experts assesses the wide range of workout equipment, both high-tech and low, in terms of what they can and cannot do for your body.


Exercise Benefits: The Exer-cycle is highly effective in fat-burning provided you reach your target heart-rate zone (generally in about 20 minutes of continuous exercycling – at this point you start burning calories from fat.) Cycling is particularly effective because it works the correct powerful thigh muscles to produce a conditioning effect.

As cardiovascular fitness improves, stamina receives a natural boost.

Stationary cycling also tones up your lower body. It strengthens your thigh, buttock and calf muscles.

Recommended Duration and Frequency: You must cycle for a minimum of 20 minutes, and then continue for about 20 minutes more to obtain good aerobic benefits. Recommended frequency: Four times a week.

Risks and Cautions: An exer-cycle is low-risk machine and can be used by people of all ages. But it’s not a recommended option for those with very bad backs who cannot sit for long.

Tips: When buying, ensure that the bike offers the option of adjustable handles and saddle height.

Stretch your muscles well before getting on.

Riding position is very important: your knees should have only a slight bend at the end of the downstroke.

Sit erect and keep your head up.

Stationary bicycling often becomes boring after a time, so try and combine it with other diversions such as reading, catching an FM programme video-watching.


Exercise Benefits: The rowing machine is the most effective total-body toner. It’s also excellent for building strength since it’s a strenuous exercise. Flexibility gets a boost since the body has to go through a range of movements.

Rowing is not a very effective fat-burner as fatigue point is reached too quickly for most people to get into their training zone. For the same reason, most people don’t see more than moderate improvements in stamina.

Recommended Duration and Frequency: Beginners shouldn’t attempt to work on the machine beyond 10 minutes. Recommended frequency: Three times a week, so that the muscles get sufficient time to rest in between sessions.

Risks/Cautions: There is a high risk of injuries. Proper co-ordination of movements is very important. The intensity is high and the workout can cause certain stresses in the lower back. Niggling backaches shouldn’t be ignored.

Rowing is recommended for younger people as the pulse rate rises very fast in this workout and people with cardiac problems should avoid it. So also those with severe back-aches.

Tips: Rowing is a skill, so learn it from an instructor. Use it more as a supplementary exercise to a basic aerobic work-out.


Exercise Benefits: Chest-expanders work on the isometric principle: when you push the springs inward you create stress within the muscles you are using (the muscles of the chest), thus strengthening and bulking them up. When you pull the springs apart, the muscles around your shoulder girdle are exercised.

But the fat-burning value of such exercise is minimal as here again the upper muscles are used. Balance and flexibility benefits are also low.

Recommended Duration and Frequency: Frequency here is in terms of the number of repetitions, which should be gradually increased, depending on how well your body tolerates the exercise. It’s the ‘no pain, no gain’ formula at work – you have to create pain and tension that results in muscle stress and muscle build-up. It’s a very rigorous process of (spot) body-building.

Risks/Cautions: Chest expanders are safe for everyone, except those with tennis elbows or upper extremity problems. Stretching as an adjunct to the exercise is necessary or you will develop strong-looking but rigid muscles.


Steppers are large and durable, while mini-steppers are small, compact and convenient to have around a small house; but both offer basically the same exercise benefits.

Exercise Benefits: Since the stepper exercises the large muscles of the body, which can bring up the heart-rate and maintain it for a long period, it has superb aerobic benefits, including fat-burning and stamina-boosting.

Strength benefits are high for the lower extremities. Flexibility and balance are however not markedly affected.

Recommended Duration and Frequency: Build up from five to around 20 minutes at least – longer than 20 minutes means more fat-burning. Do four times a week.

Risks/Cautions: Since there is only one-way movement, that is, in the vertical direction, certain lower-extremity problems tend to develop after prolonged use of this exerciser.

Tips: Posture is very important in gaining maximum value from the stepper.


Exercise Benefits: If you manage to achieve a good heart-rate elevation (that is, if you keep at it until you are in your training zone), you get aerobic benefits and burn fat.

The trampoline is a good strength developer for the lower extremities. Stamina gets a moderate boost.

Balance is honed, but flexibility improvements are moderate.

Recommended Duration and Frequency: You can work on it for 20 minutes or more. Frequency: About four times a week.

Risks/Cautions: it’s basically a workout for youngsters wanting to have a good time. Not recommended for grossly overweight novices. There is a risk of tripping and falling, therefore one should first practise under the eye of an instructor.


Exercise Benefits: The treadmill is a great method of exercising. With a motorized treadmill, you can choose your speed and incline and set parameters for yourself, which enables you to keep checking your pulse-rate and maintaining your progress.

It’s excellent for fat-burning, incorporating walking/running benefits. An excellent stamina enhancer. It also builds strength in the lower body.

Flexibility and balance improvements are low.

Recommended Duration and Frequency: Since it’s an aerobic workout, one should exercise for more than 20 minutes to obtain the benefits. Frequency: about four times a week.

Risks/Cautions: Although this is basically a safe exercise, you shouldn’t get too carried away: your heart rate may rise, causing problems. Overstepping your speed limit can also cause shin or ankle pain. Ensure proper rest intervals between sessions.


(Bar bells are long bars with or without weights on them. Dumbbells are small one-for-each hand weights.)

Exercise Benefits: They are cheap and very effective in exercising all the muscles of the body if you know how to use them to advantage. They isolate specific muscles and work on them (unlike rowing, for instance, which exercises several muscles at a time).

Fat burning is possible if you attain your target heart-rate. But it’s difficult for a beginner to achieve since it requires a lot of strength.

Dumb-bells and bar-bells tone up your body excellently, also are good at strength-building. Balance is improved to some extent, but these exercisers don’t do much for flexibility. Therefore stretching exercises are a must before and after these workouts, or you can turn into m inflated balloon after pumping weights.

A recommended exercise for women nearing their menopause, to help them reduce the risk of osteoporosis (brittle bones).

Recommended Duration and Frequency: Frequency here is in the form of repetitions, which depends on your physical capability and must be gradually built up. Should be done three to four times a week.

Risks/Cautions: People with existing muscular problems should avoid using bar-bells/dum-bells. Also, getting carried away can cause over-use injuries. Someone with a tennis elbow or a backache, for instance, who does a reverse curl may drop the bar and not only worsen his problem but also risk breaking a toe in the bargain.

Tips: Learn from an instructor how to use these exercisers to best advantage.


Exercise Benefits: Various weights can be used effectively to strengthen and develop the muscles. You can use weights while walking – either ankle weights or a waist-band or hand-held weights. They help you keep pace with your exercise partner if he’s slow, and also get the same exercise benefit in less time – that is, with weights you will need a shorter period of time to reach your training zone than you do walking without weights.

They are an excellent body toner and great for strength-building, too. Balance improves, but flexibility benefits are low.

Recommended Duration and Frequency: A three-times-a-week workout is best. Frequency is in terms of repetitions, which must be gradually increased.

Risks/Cautions: Weight training, though interesting, needs prior medical consultation, exercise supervision and nurturing. Injuries take place due to lack of attention to the norms. Neglecting warm-ups can lead to stiffness; omitting stretching exercises can lead to pulled muscles; picking weights not recommended for you can cause injury. Have someone supervise you while you exercise with weights, especially while doing squats; if you get stuck coming up, you’ll struggle and push and get into a fix.

While walking with ankle weights, if you miss your step it may affect your stride. Weights jackets or hand-held weights are preferable.


Exercise Benefits: Skipping provides a very good aerobic work-out and has a high fat-burning value.

Also, it’s an excellent work-out for your calves and the lower-body muscles.

A good stamina-builder.

It is not a total body toner; nor does it do much for the muscles of the upper body.

Recommended Duration and Frequency: Duration should be gradually increased to at least 20 minutes. Frequency: Can be done on even a daily basis (though athletes commonly use it as an adjunct to their running and walking routine).

Risks/Cautions: Skipping is a high-impact exercise and can cause degenerative knee disorders. Also, use proper footwear and skip on a good surface – made of either wood or a synthetic material that absorbs the shock.

The best way to overcome this problem is to do exercise. But how many of us would prefer waking up early for it? Answer is obviously very few and we all have our own home made excuses for this.

Everyone has his own style of achieving fitness. Some run, do exercise, sum chooses to walk, and some just drink water. Well the last one is the most unique way to stay fit. Some people also say that drinking water is the best exercise fuel as one just can’t resist for long without drinking water. It is a universal fact that the more water we drink the more we allow our body to purify itself.

Detoxification is probably the single most important component to your long-term health and one that relies almost exclusively on an adequate intake of good water. Water is our body’s only means of flushing out toxins and fats. Those if not flushed gets accumulated in our body causing gain of weight and fatigue.

The fact that water consists more than two third part of our body itself shows how important it is for us. Following are some of the facts that how drinking pure helps you to achieve fitness:

  1. It balances the body fluids: Drinking water in bulk certainly balances the fluids inside your body. Here it must be understood that by body fluid we mean digestion, absorption, saliva creation, muscle & joint inflammation and overall maintenance of the temperature of your body.
  2. It helps you to lose weight: This is for those who tend to eat a lot while doing their work. Taking enough amount of water in regular intervals fill your appetite and you end up consuming less junk food, hence lose weight.
  3. It makes your skin look good: Our skin represents us; it is the first impression which lasts over a life time.

Now when we talk about drinking pure water, we must also ensure to install water purifiers at our home. Seeing the current level of water borne diseases and pollution, water purifiers come as the best solution that are used by millions of households across India.Market is filled with various water purifier companies, where everyone claims itself to have the best price and services. Though everyone makes promises, but very few are able to meet it. Therefore one need to be very careful while choosing the best water purifiers for their home or office. The water purifiers must have multiple level of filtration system with the combination of latest RO+UV+Alkarich Technology and guarantee you the purest water to drink.

Optimizing a Healthy Lifestyle

The human body is a highly evolved biological machine. Lifestyle plays a big role in optimizing your general health. It’s in your best interest to adopt a healthy one. I know it’s not easy to develop one; but, doing so can definitely do wonders to your body for the long haul. But, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to do walking, swimming, running and biking, even in your twilight years?

Consider how you think, eat, train, recuperate, plan, focus and more. It goes without saying that these core essentials of lifestyle alone could stand a level-up in each of our lives as persons, parents, professionals who may also be into the military, sports, creative pursuits on top of “life” itself.

In life, knowing that energy is everything and everything depends on this vital energy is essential. The thing is, the energy we’re talking about most of us have taken for granted for far too long because you can’t see it or touch it.

Nonetheless, you experience this, your primary source of energy, every minute of every day, and while you know when it’s depleted you often won’t know how depleted until you hit the wall-an athletic term to describe depleted energy. It’s your battery power, your body is the battery, and it’s easy to misinterpret how much power you have unless you are informed and skilled. It’s because we’re living with an underlying personal energy deficit that compromises human function and therefore your lifestyle which reinforces the vicious cycle.

If you think that energy is merely the result of what you eat and drink or how you think (psychology) and that you go to sleep merely because it’s dark, everyone else is doing it and your tired (but don’t know why), chances are you are living in a chronic state of energy deficit because you don’t value sleep enough or understand the profound impact it’s having on your life or the lack thereof.

The food you take in can either heal or harm. You make that choice every day by what you put on your mouth. Most of the food consumed by humans has been carbohydrates. In fact, plant foods are comprised mostly of carbohydrates: vegetables, fruits, beans, whole grains, nuts, seeds, herbs, and spices. These foods contain slowly released sources of sugar that prevent surges of blood sugar and insulin.

Too much insulin causes heart disease, diabetes, cancer, depression, and even dementia. Carbohydrates contain almost all the vitamins and minerals our bodies need to operate normally and optimally. They also contain fiber, which helps normalize our digestive function and slows the absorption of sugar and fats into the body, keeping us balanced. The bonuses in plant foods are phytonutrients, a colorful healing compounds made by plants to protect themselves, but that also protect us against aging, obesity, brain damage, and more.

Success breeds success. This is true if you optimize your lifestyle by tending your meals to reflect a troubled time of day when you’re pressed for time and squeezed for energy, and you come up with a solution, all of your mealtimes will transform.
