TRAINING EFFECT & TRAINING GOALS
Training on the outdoor rowing machine can promote strength, endurance and body flexibility with positive effects on your health:
- Improvement of vital functions
- Strengthening leg, arm and trunk muscles
- Fall prevention through mobilization and stabilization of the entire body
The affected muscle groups
Rowing strengthens, tones and defines your upper body. During the rowing movement, the pulling resistance strengthens shoulder muscles, upper-back and arms in particular.
It is also possible to vitalize the lower body by stretching the lower back and the back thigh muscles in a forward direction.
Which exercises can be performed with the playfit® Sit and Row?
- Sit on the seat of the rowing trainer and place your feet on the foot bars.
- Grasp the support bar with your hands and “row”.
- Make sure that you do not fully extend your legs.
- Perform the exercise slowly and evenly at first.
- Enjoy the slight stretching of your entire body in a harmonious sequence of movements.
The duration of the training session can be chosen at will, but initially a training session of 5 – 10 minutes is recommended. Speed and duration of the exercise can be increased to improve performance.
Try to keep your abdominal muscles tensed.
The rowing trainer is certified in accordance with the EN 16630 safety standard for stationary outdoor fitness equipment and is intended for people taller than 140 cm.
To avoid overexertion during training you train with your own body weight on our outdoor equipment. For this reason there are no individual adjustment options on our rowing machine. Experience has shown that adjustable features on equipment in outdoor public spaces can get clogged up with dirt and sand and other materials and get jammed and are also prone to vandalism and may generally require more servicing and repair.
Our outdoor rowing-unit is supplied completely pre-assembled. While foundations are required, installation is very straightforward and for this piece of equipment there are no particular requirements for surface materials and it is possible to use concrete, stone, grass, topsoil, water-bound surface, sand, gravel, wood chips or synthetic fall protection material.
