Cardio Vascular fitness:
Cardio vascular exercise is any type of exercise that increases the work of the lungs and the heart, and is the number one way to improve your general health, burn body fat and increase your fitness levels.
Rowing machines utilise large muscle groups in both the upper and lower body, making them one of the most effective machines for a total body workout. Not only are they incredibly effective for increasing cardio vascular fitness, but the rower can also help to tone up the legs and core.
To get the most from your workout on your rower, you first need to identify what you want to achieve:
Are you working out to improve your health or to lose weight?
Understanding a little about intensity levels will ensure that the time invested in your exercise sessions returns the greatest benefits, rather than a hit and miss approach.
Cardio for good health:
To stay healthy, adults aged 19 - 64 should aim to do at least 150 minutes, or 2 hours and 30 minutes, of moderate-intensity aerobic activity every week. Your heart rate should be raised and your breathing will be quicker but you should still be able to hold a conversation.
This level of exercise is for those wishing to improve quality of life and general well-being. Gentle 'good health' cardio training will increase your fitness level to a degree, helping you get through day-to-day tasks more easily and with more energy.
Cardio for weight loss:
To see a significant reduction in body fat, your sessions must be a little more intense. It's recommended that adults aged 19 - 64 should aim to do at least 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity every week. If you are working out at this level, you will be breathing hard and fast, your heart rate will be high and it will be difficult to talk.
This level of fitness is ideal for those wishing to lose weight and significantly improve their fitness levels.
