You won’t find this on your infomercial late at night because it is just way too simple and you can’t fold it away that easily and never use it again! I am thinking you have worked out what I think is the best cardio machine for home is based on the picture!
Yes it is the humble rowing machine. Now I don’t have any connection with the Concept 2 boys as such but I must say it is the recommended brand I would go for and the ones we use in our small group training cardio program. The reason is that they just last, but be sure to expect to pay for that quality. If you do end up looking for one please contact me as I am sure with some of my connections I can find you a better deal than if you look for one on your own.
So why do I like the rowing machine so much? It is pretty simple really.
- Your weight is supported so there is no impact. It is therefore great for those who can’t handle running.
- You work your upper and lower body so it consumes a A LOT of energy and is a full body workout.
- You pull back which we don’t do enough of in our day to day existence. Look at the classic forward head posture of your average person which comes from all that work we do in FRONT of the body.
