The Total Gym Incline Row will be used for this workout. What you’ll notice about this equipment is that it’s “easy” for all the right reasons!! Easy to use, easy on the joints (low impact), and easy to get an intense workout in a short period of time. The benefits of training on an incline Total Gym rower are numerous.
Here are some of the key benefits:
1. Improved cardiovascular health: Rowing is an excellent cardiovascular exercise that helps improve heart health, increase lung capacity, and boost overall endurance.
2. Strengthened muscles: Rowing on an incline works the major muscle groups of your body, including your legs, glutes, back, arms, and shoulders. This type of workout helps increase muscle strength and tone, leading to a more defined and sculpted physique.
3. Increased calorie burn: Rowing on an incline is a high-intensity workout that burns a significant number of calories. This can help you achieve your weight loss goals faster and more efficiently.
4. Reduced joint impact: Unlike other high-impact exercises, rowing on an incline is low-impact, which means it puts less stress on your joints. This makes it an ideal workout for those with joint pain or mobility issues.
5. Improved balance and coordination: Rowing on an incline requires coordination and balance, which helps improve these skills over time.
Performing an incline Total Gym Incline Row workout in the morning will also increase your energy levels and kickstart your metabolism, which can help you burn more calories throughout the day. It will help reduce stress and anxiety, leaving you feeling more relaxed and focused throughout the day.
