For years, rowing has been relegated to nothing more than a warm-up exercise. Now, finally, it’s beginning to gain recognition as an effective workout all on its own, with super stylish rowing studios popping up everywhere from New York to Sydney.
The exercise burns an average of 600 calories an hour, a feat you’d only achieve after 78 minutes on a stationary bike and even then, you won’t have got the full body workout that rowing provides.
Although there aren’t any dedicated rowing gyms in South Africa yet, you can still get the heart-pumping, muscle-toning benefits of this calorie-torching workout by making it your entire gym session, rather than just your warm up.
And if the rowing leaves you a little stiff and sore, consider taking Releaf MSM with Curcumin, which has natural anti-inflammatory properties that may help with the relief of pain and positively affect the maintenance of healthy joints and connective tissues.
