How to Incorporate Rowing into Your Fitness Routine

rowing machine exercises

Indoor rowing is one of the best activities you can do to keep fit, but establishing an effective workout can take time.

There are many ways you can incorporate rowing into your routine, and there is no right or wrong way to go about it.

Here we’ll take a look at some of the best ways to incorporate rowing into your routine, but first, we’ll look at some of the key benefits of rowing.

Benefits of Rowing

Rowing is popular for many reasons. It’s a great way to enjoy a low-impact exercise, which makes it easy on the joints and ideal for all ages. You can also use a rowing machine to do a full-body workout incorporating both strength training and cardio.

It’s also a convenient way to work out because many rowers are quite small and can be used in your home gym without taking up much space.

But how should you incorporate rowing into your routine?

Use Rowing as a Warmup

Rowing can be an effective warmup before you get into your full workout. Just hop on the rower for five minutes and take it nice and slow.

Start to get your heart rate up and warm your body without putting pressure on your joints, and you’ll be ready to get going with your full workout.

Get a Cardio Workout

Rowing machines can be a great way to get a good cardio workout. You may have a preferred cardio workout like an indoor bike or a treadmill, but you can easily switch these for a rowing machine and get your heart rate pumping.

Use as a Cross-Training Activity

If you enjoy cross-training, you can incorporate rowing into your workout. It’s ideal for fitness enthusiasts of all levels, and it’s good for building strength, cardiovascular fitness and endurance.

Use Rowing for HIIT Workouts

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is very popular, and if you want to incorporate it into your routine, a rower is a great way to do so.

With a rowing machine, you can alternate between a low-intensity rowing session and a high-intensity workout. Or you can switch between rowing and strength training.

Short Workouts

Rowing can be a great option for a shorter workout. Even a few minutes on the rower can give you a good workout if you don’t have a lot of time available. This way, you can give your whole body a full workout in a small amount of time.

Use Rowing for Endurance

If you prefer longer workouts for building endurance, rowing is a good option too. It’s ideal for swimmers and runners, providing a different way to build endurance compared to your usual workout.


Add Rowing to Your Routine

Rowing is a fantastic way to work out. It’s incredibly versatile, and no matter what your goals are, you can fit it into your routine and use it in the way that works best for you.
