Waterrower Muscle Usage
The rowing stroke uses a vast combination of muscles. From the tips of the fingers holding the handle/oars, to the balls of the feet connected to the footboard/boat, all the muscles between these two points contribute to the rowing stroke. By maximizing the muscle mass contributing to the exercise in this way, the WaterRower is unrivalled in benefit derived per unit of time. Other common aerobic exercise equipment such as treadmills, cycles, ellipticals, even other rowing machines, use far less muscle mass, burn fewer calories, and generate less exercise benefit.
