The Rower: Kickstart Your Workout

The rowing machine is a fantastic tool for getting your heart rate up and working both your upper and lower body. Here’s how to make the most out of your 5-minute rowing session:

  1. Set the Vent on 7: This setting provides a good balance of resistance and speed.
  2. Put the Meter Reading Up: This will help you track your performance.
  3. Focus on Your Stroke Rate: Aim to keep your rate at 26 strokes per minute (spm).
  4. Monitor Your Time for 500 Meters: Strive to complete 500 meters in under 3 minutes.
