Does Your Bad Back Keep You Out of Shape? Row Yourself Fit
This entry was posted on December 26, 2014.
Working out can be hard to do for anyone, but if you have a back injury it can be even more difficult. You need to avoid high impact exercises so you do not jolt or jar your spine more than necessary. Low impact exercise will fill the bill and that choice needs to be rowing. Rowing strengthens all the major muscle groups in the upper and lower body and does it all with little or no stress on your back.
Fitness Expo has a huge selection of rowing machines with many options and several available upgrades. Visit them in-store and let the expert staff demonstrate all of the equipment and show you the proper technique. There are six locations to make it easy for you to get to the showroom, so while you are out near Shreveport, LA, Metairie, LA, Kenner, LA, Baton Rouge, LA, or Jackson, MS stop in and get fitted for a top quality rowing machine. Once you get in shape you can find yourself a kayak or canoe and enjoy rowing in the local waterways. The staff at Fitness Expo can probably direct you to the best local water for such enjoyment, boat rentals, or even just a lovely sunset. Customer service is a priority for them, so they try to stay up to date on all fitness activities and local areas for such pleasures.
There is also a way to compare and view rowing machines online at www.fitnessexpostores.com however, it is always best to be sure you are comfortable on the machine you purchase. You will need to decide if you like a stationary seat or a sliding seat and which oars fit your hands the best. With a back injury you additionally need to be sure the rower will be easy for you to get seated on and get up from. Once you begin to strengthen your back the difficulty will diminish, but in the beginning you need to be as comfortable as possible. As always, consult your physician before starting any exercise regimen, and then count on Fitness Expo to find you the best quality rowing machine available.
