1 Hour Rowing Machine Challenge Additional Information

The 1 Hour Rowing Machine Challenge is a different exercise challenge. This unique test measures both physical and mental endurance. There is not a specific distance or number of reps you must cover, but to exercise on a rowing machine for an hour straight is more difficult than it may seem. No pauses are allowed. Beginning smart and keeping proper form will help you finish this challenge.

Start Smart

In order to succeed at the 1 Hour Rowing Machine Challenge, set yourself up for success. The test does not specify what settings the rowing machine must be at. Therefore, set the gears so it is very easy. This is a test of endurance more than of brute strength. What seems easy at the start can be extremely difficult after 45 minutes of exercising the same muscles.

Use Proper Form

A rowing machine should exercise your legs, torso and arms. A full stroke should use all of these. If you rely on only two of these, they will become tired and sore. For example, if your arms are never used, your back and legs must do all the work for an entire hour; they never get a break. However, if you use all three-muscle groups, each will have a momentary rest on every stroke. While your arms are pulling, your legs will have a second of rest.

Keeping the proper form throughout the entire stationary row exercise, for every stroke, will help you endure for the whole hour. If improper form is used for even one stroke, bad habits and laziness can quickly set in. Either by placing strain on muscles that cannot handle it, or by placing strain incorrectly on muscles, poor form will be disastrous. At best, it will make the challenge more difficult. It might even cause injury.

The 1 Hour Rowing Machine Challenge is a fun way to exercise on a rowing machine. It provides a goal to achieve. In order to finish the test, set yourself up to finish and focus on form.
