ALL LEVELS / rowing workout / 15 minutes
Equipment: Rowing machine
Rowing machines are among our favourite gym equipment — and it’s easy to explain why. First of all, it’s a functional fitness dream: your hands and feet are in fixed positions, and the rowing movement works through multiple muscle groups and joints. It also helps you improve your posture, and it works the major muscles of your lower body. The bottom line is it can be a full-body workout, highly intense and without the impact. Last but not least, it’s great to keep track of your improvements: each time you row, you can see how fast you went and compare it with previous sessions.
But don’t take our words for it; take Carolina Lüthi’s instead. Believe it or not, our personal trainer from EVO Zurich Enge is a former Olympic rower, so it’s safe to say she knows a thing or two about this topic.
This 15-min rowing workout combines rowing with 5 exercises that you can do using the rowing machine. You’ll do 500m of rowing before and between each one of these exercises. Meaning you’ll start by rowing 500m, then perform the first exercise, and after that, you’ll row again for 500m, and so on. You’ll perform each of the in-between exercises for 60 seconds. Aim for little to no rest. This will take you 15 minutes to complete. However, if you’re feeling you need more rowing in your training, feel free to add more rounds to this workout.
3, 2, 1 — let’s row!
The nature of this workout makes it almost impossible to replicate at home. You can save it for when you visit EVO next time. If you haven’t yet signed up for an EVO membership, you can do it here.
