Rowing machines for home - fitness equipment that gives you the ultimate arm and leg workout

Think about using a rowing machine to give yourself the workout that burns calories and leads to weight loss.

When you begin to use a rowing machine, you should start off slowly, setting the machine within levels 3-5. 

As you work your way up the levels of fitness, you can begin to intensify the exercise to achieve maximum burning of calories. 

There are many benefits to using a rowing machine as your choice of fitness equipment, because you can exercise both your arm and back muscles at the same time.

One interesting method of using the rowing machine is to compete against yourself. 

Using the preset modes on the machine, you can set the distance you wish to row or the time. 

Compete against yourself by trying to beat the distance you row each time or the length of time it takes you to row a certain distance. 

While you are rowing, you can vary the units to watts, pace or calories. Rowing at high intensity will help you to burn more calories.

Some tips for buying your ideal rowing maching:

  • Check to make sure that the air resistance is regulated by the rowing speed.
  • Comfort while using this fitness equipment is important so you should check to see that there are swivel footrests and an inclined seat to allow you more efficient movement. 
  • The seat should be padded for comfort. 
  • Make a list of features that you 'need', 'want' and 'like to have' so that you don't get confused just before making the buying decision.

If you do all the above you are well on your way to buying the 'ideal' rowing machine for yourself.
