In a standard gym, you will rarely find a rowing machine, most likely we will see an ellipsoid or a treadmill. Such devices are most often placed at training bases for athletes, since in professional rowing the simulator plays an important role in preparation, but not in fitness centers! And in vain! They help to lose weight quickly, strengthen muscles of different groups, increase endurance. There is a stereotype that such classes are not suitable for girls: the shoulders will be wide. But this is not true, if you practice in moderation and correctly, you will simply strengthen the muscles of the buttocks, thighs, arms, because the load is distributed evenly.
Types of traction on a rowing simulator
Different models of devices differ from each other not only by the type of mechanism, but also by the type of traction. Sometimes it is this indicator that allows you to determine which audience the model is intended for.
