Rowing Brings Less Chance of Injury
This entry was posted on December 24, 2014.
Rowing machines are one of the low impact choices that can be made for your home gym. Elliptical machines are another low impact choice, but rowers are still safer as far as injury is concerned. Many do not think of a home gym as a dangerous place, but if you are not using the equipment properly, you can injure yourself badly. Rowing machines are low to the ground to thwart the risk of falling off and injuring yourself in that manner. Understandably, proper use of any equipment will avoid injuries, but accidents happen, so eliminating the falling risk makes the rowing machine safer.
Proper usage and form is also important to avoid lower back injury from a rowing machine. A visit to a Fitness Expo store at one of the five Louisiana locations or in Jackson, Mississippi is beneficial so you can see the proper form in person. The sales staff is more about customer service and making sure you are knowledgeable about the equipment you are about to purchase than anything else. You cannot find better home gym machines elsewhere, and the expert staff makes Fitness Expo a premier option for quality home workout machines.
Rowing machines can be basic or involved, and some have sliding seats or options to keep them stationary. There are also oar tension adjustments that can be automatic via an installed program or heart rate interaction, so research the possibilities available. Options for oar grips give more than less cushioning, or textured rather than smooth. Some prefer to row with gloves, so smooth grips may be good for you if you have grip from the gloves. You can view the selections online at www.fitnessexpostores.com, but it is always best to come into a store and try the machine in person. You may decide that you do not like the fit of one machine over another brand, or that your needs really steer you to buy another type of machine completely. Remember, if you are prone to falling off high things you may want to have the rower just for the sake of safety. You have many choices; choose wisely, you know yourself best after all.
