Beginner Quadriceps Exercises with Row Machine
The quadriceps (quads) are a group of four muscles on the front of the thigh. They allow your knee to straighten and provide stability when standing. Your quads are the most important muscle group for maintaining the ability to stand and to walk independently.
It is also believed that arthritis pain can be relieved by strengthening the quadriceps muscles which takes pressure off the knees.
The rowing machine is used to simulate the action of watercraft rowing for the purpose of exercise or training for rowing. Indoor rowing primarily works the cardiovascular systems with workouts varying in distance and time.
Like other cardio equipment, it can be used for long steady state workouts or short, high intensity sessions. Proper technique is a necessity for staying injury free, with a focus on both mechanics and breathing, as correct rhythm, exhaling on the drive and inhaling on the recovery, is a stabilizing force for the upper body.
The seated rowing machine is a very challenging piece of cardio equipment that targets the entire body.
