Would a rowing machine help me lose weight?
Asked by anonymous on Jan 12, 2009 in Fitness


Rowing is perfect for weight loss.  It is a high calorie burner and a muscle builder too, and it is easy on the knees and ankles.  Rowing works large muscles all around the body including the legs, arms, shoulders, back, and core.  Because rowing is vigorous, a beginning rower should exercise in several short segments a day.  Rowing can be boring, so plan to listen to music, water TV or talk on the phone while rowing.  Read about how to use the rowing machine from the Guide to Sports Medicine at
