  • Not going to lie, any hint of a recommendation for a rowing machine because there was one on the Titanic would not be my first pick for an endorsement 🥶😀

  • Distance swimmer here. In the water, feedback is pretty instant – so long as you're paying attention to what the water is doing around your body and whether you're getting good 'traction' with your hands/forearms and feet/legs (new paradigm swimmer here, but I've modified their form into a sidestroke as I'm a sinker). I've had to back off on the swimming due to cramping issues – and I'd rather not drown TYVM.
    I'm attracted to rowing because there's the same need for attention to form. I'm a bit concerned that there aren't the same cues when I've screwed up. There are cues when you're actually out on the water (shell, rowboat, canoe, or kayak) – but I wonder what you get when on a machine(?). On the bright side, there's no need for feathering. Subscribed, BTW

  • what do you think about " Total Gym Incline Rower CE " it is not a rowing machine but is sort of rowing with incline? I would like to know what you think on that home gym equipment. Thank you.

  • Hey DH community. Just recently purchased a rowing machine (not concept2 brand unfortunately due to finances) and I’m excited to start my training. Do you guys stretch/warmup prior to getting on the machine? Any tips would be appreciated!

  • I have hyper-mobility in my hips which makes most cardio quite painful. I've purchased a rower in the hopes that it'll be a little easier on my hips since I can utilise my upper body a lot more.

    Swimming and Brazillian Jiu Jitsu are also fine on my hips, but with the quarantine neither is an option ATM.

  • Started rowing at age 43… its been a great journey so far. I recently did the 100K for the second time. If I can… you can.

  • I started rowing at 5’11 at 365lbs with pre diabetes, high blood pressure and severe depression. 24 months later with my 40th birthday approaching, I’ve gained back an inch in height and I’m now 195lbs and I’m in the best shape of my life, mentally and physically. I also look like a completely different person.

    I started lifting weights in conjunction once I broke below 300lbs. I now row either 5 meters x 4 with a 5 minute break between sprints 3 days a week or I row 4500 meters in a slower steady pace on the three days I lift weights. I eat between 12pm & 8pm with around 100g carbs / 250g protein /100 g fat a day and I fast from after my cheat meal Saturday night through Monday morning when I’m not doing any exercise

    Other than the rowing machine. I hike around my property a lot which is a pretty rugged 40 acres of land. Never could have done that before

  • Just for the record, I watched a few videos from this channel but this is the one that made me subscribe. That's now because I liked what I heard, but it's the manner in which it was presented. Nice one, thank you.

  • I love my rowing machine. It's only a cheap one and I've had to open it up and replace the strap, also replace the tracks and seat wheels but I'm on it most days for a good workout. It's really satisfying pulling against a good resistance. If you haven't used one before go easy at first and ALWAYS warm up before and after you do a session. If I had to replace the machine I would go straight for a Concept 2 though the one I've got has been quite good. If I could only have one exercise machine at home it would definitely be a rower

  • I was able to score a C2 rower yesterday. I love it! I have been searching for months, then COVID hit and everyone wanted 1500-2000 for their rowers. Glad i found a fairly new one for around retail price from Craigs!!

  • Idk if its great for everyone…..but it’s going to improve your overall life, but that’s not for everyone. Worthless information and counter intuitive. You’re not supporting you initial comments.

  • Really does improve your quality of life, everything changed for me the way I walk, my range of motion, I can feel my movements were wrong in day to day life and fitness wise rowers are absolutely the way to go. When I first started it killed my lower back and I got cramps in my hips. None of that now.

  • When I was Navy we had a rowing machine on the ship ( go figure) and I used to get a great workout with it, always felt great afterwards. Since then in my civilian years I could never find a rowing machine in a gym SO i will be purchasing one very soon of everything that you explained about it and my personal history with it. Thank you for the vid…

  • I'm 60 and rowed when I was in college. I have never loved any sport or form of exercise more than that one, and that included waking up at 5:00 in the morning to get to the water by 5:30. Running, swimming, yoga … couldn't touch it. Over the decades, I've slowed down, have had numerous medical ailments, and decided to get back into rowing. Alas, no boat, no club, and no doubt at this point I'd tip over. I bought a machine. I love it. I'm back home. It feels right. It clicks and the sound, the movement, the regularity of breath, the challenge….yeah, I'm back on the water in my mind! My knees don't hurt. This is great. Thanks for being a guide! (The only thing that would make it more fun would be a pair, quad or and 8!).
