    Muscles worked: Thighs, hips, lower back, upper back and arms

    Instructions: Sit upright to avoid back strain, and don't over arch your back as you complete each stroke. Keep your elbows close to your body when pulling. As an overall exercise, it is hard to beat rowing. In addition to the aerobic benefits of this vigorous physical activity, the rowing action involves the muscles of the legs, thighs, hips, lower back, upper back and arms. Although rowing requires quite a bit of lower body and upper body coordination, most people can master the action with a little practice.

    If you are not reasonably fit, rowing may be a little too physically demanding for a beginning exercise activity. Also, if you suffer from low back problems, it may be best to choose a less stressful exercise.

    Dont's:
  • Don't round your back as you complete each stroke.
  • Don't stop at the most stretched-out position and bent position. Keep the handle moving in a smooth continuous stroke.
