How many calories does rowing machine burn? from Leonida Hill
Hello, my name is Cher, and I am 24 years old. I want to improve my fit by losing some kilograms. I have decided to buy a rowing machine, but I have some questions for you.
Is there any type of rowing machine for home use? Someone has told me to buy only with 350 lbs capacity, what it means?
Do you know any workout plan designed for training on the rowing machine? Should I do exercises for warming up before going to the rowing machine? How many calories does rowing machine burn for an hour of exercising? Will it help me to lose 5 kilograms? I hope you can help me and give good advice. I’m looking forward to your answers, thanks.
Hi Cher, I will try to answer your questions.
The rowing simulator is a very capable machine for all muscle groups of your body. If you don’t have enough time or opportunity to go to the gym – this outfit is a good alternative for home. It is small in size and therefore doesn’t take up too much space. Moreover, at any time, you can compose it, this doesn’t require many efforts.
There are four types of such a simulator, but the best and the most convenient is magnetic. Despite the fact it is expensive enough, the price is entirely justified by quality and capabilities.
What is it 350 lb? It means that the rower has a weight capacity of 350 lbs (nearly 160 kilograms). It is quite a significant number, so if you are buying this outfit both for you and your man – yes, it’s a functional variant. But, if it’s only for you-you may buy with lower capacity.

You should do exercises for warming up before going to any training machine. In 30 minutes of intensive work on a rowing machine, you will burn on average of about 500 calories. It is almost twice as much as the expense of calories in running or cycling. If you follow a diet, have a good sleep and intensive training – you will lose that 5 kilos per month.
