Before I developed an interest in rowing, I already trained regularly in a gym, so I just kept doing that to keep fit and develop muscle. Once I started to become interested in rowing, I started using rowing machines more in my gym training and at home.Like any sport, rowing requires time to master and endure. Although a team sport, each rower needs to practice to develop strength and right timing.
My brother tried rowing before. That's 30-60 minutes, twice a week to build up muscles. How about you, how do you train?
I don't have access to water so I row on an erg. I will do erg training 2-3 times per week as part of training for my primary sport, Usually I will either row a 2000m or do 500m intervals.
