Weight Training for Rowing

Post by JIMFOZ » August 24th, 2018, 9:25 am

Does anyone have a good weight training workout routine for rowing
I'm looking to gain some weight, and I was advised that weight training (along with eating) will help this
Does anyone have a good weight training plan for commercial gyms
I am currently able to weight train about 4-5 times per week

Google "weight training for rowers" and you'll get lots of ideas.

When I do that this one is at the top of the list:

I reckon that ent a bad starting point.

There is a modified bent over row that is specific for rowing (cant think of it name ... but certainly gets the HR up)

I also add some back/hip work .... kettlebell swings and there is a machine once again its name fails me...basically reverse crunches ... I limit movement to that approaching the rowing action ( I was surprised at the proportion of rowing power the hips generate!!
