Row, Row, Row 

Hello!!!! It’s been a hot minute since I shared a workout so today is your lucky day!!

   

AND ROW!!!

When I first started going to Orange Theory Fitness I had a love/hate relationship with the rower. It hurt my hands, I couldn’t quite get the flow, but I noticed that I was burning a lot of calories when I was on it AND I noticed a difference in my strength all around. 

This isn’t new for those of you who have been rowing for awhile, but for those that still just pass the rower by, jump on it during your next cardio day! Don’t believe how awesome it is? Read this article. We all know spin, or cycle, class TORCHES calories and is an awesome workout. But jumping on the rower is even better!! 

Over the months I have posted a couple row workouts. Here is an OTF inspired run to row workout here. And most recently I posted a row workout with bicep curls

Check them out let me know what you think. I promise you won’t be disappointed! Plus! If you are looking for a new and different cardio workout to kind of surprise your body this is it. You can even do interval training on the rower just like running or spin/cycle.

Weekly Round Up – 3.7.16

Hello Friends!! I am back!! I have been battling bronchitis the past few days but I am relieved to be feeling better and back on track with the blog.

Even though I was coughing up a storm that didn’t keep me from completing my first 8 mile race. Of course it was to the top of a mountain but it was so worth it. The views of El Paso and of Mexico were breathtaking.



Take a look at what I read, pinned and snapped over the past 2 weeks…. Continue reading “Weekly Round Up – 3.7.16”
