How many calories does rowing burn?
Hello everyone. I’m going to the gym four times a week. There I’m doing different exercises, both cardio and strength ones. But I still don’t see desirable results. I’m working on the Stamina rowing machines the most often. Though I guess the results will be noticeable with time.
Currently, I’m planning to buy the Concept2 Model D indoor rowing machine with PM5. Concept2 Model D indoor rower is expected to produce a very powerful cardiovascular workout at an affordable price.
Rowing results: calories burnt
Referring to various sources and studies on the Internet, I created the table of calories burnt while rowing. Remember these figures will differ among people as the formula takes into account age, weight, and heart rate.
|Weight (lbs)||Intensity||Time (hours)||Calories burned|
I guess a lot of factors influence the calories burnt during the workout. Such as muscle mass, body fat percentage, level of physical training, metabolism speed, body temperature, your sleep regime, and even nutrition.
Another important factor is breathing. Increasing the physical load, you get the pulse rise, shortness of breath, etc. When it happens, the calories burnt while rowing will differ. Here is the formula that calculates the number of calories you burn during the workout:
The formula for men:
Calories Burned = [(Age x 0.2017) – (Weight x 0.09036) + (Heart Rate x 0.6309) – 55.0969] x Time / 4.184.
The formula for women:
Calories Burned = [(Age x 0.074) – (Weight x 0.05741) + (Heart Rate x 0.4472) – 20.4022] x Time / 4.184.
Well, before buying the simulator for home use, I need to read your opinion. Every user has its own rowing experience, that depends on mentioned above factors. My questions to you are the following:
- How many calories does rowing burn? Share your results.
- How long should I use a rowing machine to see the result?
- How many rows should I do on a rowing machine?
Well, is this type of a simulator effective enough for you? Or should I change it and use another training machine which will help me achieve results quicker? Maybe I should be more patient. Hope you will help me, I’m really looking forward to your answers, thanks.
