Rowing Machine Exercises : Types of Rowing Training Exercises on a Rowing Machine

Hi! I’m Anna-Marie; I’m a Canadian Olympic
Rower. I’m here on behalf of In this clip, I’m going to talk a little
bit about different types of rowing workouts. Just beware, if you’re just starting out
on the rowing machine, look at the clip about getting started. For this one, I’m going
to talk to people who are already comfortable on the rowing machine. There’s a variety
of different types of workouts you can do. We’ll also talk in a later clip about how
to setup your monitor for those specific types of workouts. Probably the most basic workout
is just steady state. That’s keeping a stroke rate between about 18 strokes a minute and
maybe the high end will be 24 strokes a minute, and just going continuously. A workout like
that can be anywhere from 10 minutes to 60 minutes or longer. You’re just going at
a nice comfortable easy pace that you’re able to maintain trying to hold the same splits
or the same power output for the entire time, working more on the endurance. Another type
of workout can be interval training. That’s when you do maybe 1 or 2 minutes at a higher
intensity then take a break for a minute or 3, then another a couple of minutes on, then
another couple of minutes off. So you’re kind of on an on/off type switch. Another
type of workout can be higher intensity, but shorter duration. For example, as an elite
rower, I might do a 6k all out, as hard as I can go, as fast as possible, or a 2kilometer
all out as fast I can go. Those are different types of rowing workouts. You can also play
around with the amounts of times that you’re doing particular workouts. A pyramid for example,
you might start off with 4 minutes, then go to 3 minutes, then 2 minutes, then 1 minute,
then work your way back up. 2 minutes, 3 minutes, 4 minutes. At each of those changes, you choose
a different stroke rate. 4 minutes at 18, 3 minutes at 20, 2 minutes at 22, 1 minute
at 24, and the same thing in reverse. 22, 20, 18. There’s so many different types
of workouts you can choose. You can start to make up your own once you get comfortable.

  1. who said rowers aren't sexy? Godamn I would let her S my D and B my L all over her face, listen to that voice, I could row a 1.10 split with her on my lap oh god urhghghghg

  2. Miklymac listen mate if you do not find that voice sexy then I do not know what is wrong with you? You must be a closet homosexual

  3. she is absolutely useless, she will drive to you an injury, i have been a rower for nearly 7 years. she bends the arms too early and she will injure you.

    she is also clearly a lesbian

  4. @pumpkinsam how do you know, she doesn't even row in this video, I've been rowing for 8 years… yeah a year longer apparently can show you that you know nothing.

  5. these kids feeling insecure cuz she's an olympic athlete and they accomplished nothing with their lives so they insult her appearance. nice comeback, losers. keep being the bottom of the society with that attitude, thanks.

  6. She's VERY pretty, no one has a right to judge. More important things to focus on with the planet people, spend your time doing something purposeful and effectively positive.

  7. >>> Great workout as long as you're consistent. The front panel comes with all kinds of settings and "Games" – it's great! I will warn you it is heavy and large! Like… really long.. and while you can disconnect the 2 parts at the hinge, it's still pretty bulky.
