March 30, 2007, Newsletter Issue #268: Rowing Machines

Tip of the Week

When using a rowing machine, initiate the stroke with your legs, not your arms, to get the most out of your workout. Synchronize your movements so you finish the stroke with your legs straight and your arms bent, with the handle at your lower chest. Then you can pull yourself forward with your feet in their straps, extend your arms, and be ready for the next stroke. Rowing machines are good for total body conditioning, as well as a great aerobic workout.
