Rowing – get fit in the boat

Rowing can be practiced alone with different types of boats and as a team sport, e.g. in pairs, fours or eights. It is also suitable for overweight people. During the rowing movements, endurance sports are combined with strength sports.

How long has rowing been around?

This method of locomotion on the water was already common in ancient times, and mostly the slaves rowed at that time in inhumane conditions. In 1715, the first rowing competition of modern times was held in England. It has been an Olympic discipline since 1896. But due to unfavorable weather conditions, the competition did not take place until the Summer Olympics in 1900.

Versatile effect on the body

It works many muscles or muscle groups at the same time and is easy on the joints. This sport usually has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system.

The entire musculoskeletal system is strengthened and previously occurring back pain can become less frequent. Overall, the own posture is improved. In addition, injuries rarely occur when practicing this water sport.

Possible outdoors or in the gym

First, the rowing technique should be properly learned under professional guidance. A hump or hollow back must be avoided at all costs. Incorrect movements can potentially lead to unnecessary stresses, e.g. on the spine, which can be painful. Depending on where you live, training can take place in appropriate clubs that use lakes or rivers for this purpose. However, the athlete is very dependent on the time of day and season. Some gyms have special rowing machines, which are quite suitable for learning and training in bad weather conditions or throughout the year.

Rowing is fun and fit

It promotes the so-called strength endurance. This sport is recommended for weight loss, because during the training the energy consumption is very high, depending on the training sessions and body weight. Depending on the physical constitution, the pace can be varied. At the same time, muscle mass gradually increases.

Rowing is suitable for any age group. Regular training, e.g. three times a week, and a healthy change of diet are important to reach the optimal body weight.
