Yea i use them quite abit bud, next time your in the gym go to the list of workouts and theres a '500m / 1.00 R' workout! its basically a 500m sprints then 1 minute interval! they are a killer, have a go at doing 4 or 5 of those in a row SPRINTING and you'll change your mind about them :)

USE THEM

THEY ARE SO EFFECTIVE

especially if u have an injury rowing is low impact compared to running and will get your anarobic threshhold up which is what u want for PRMC ,RM etc etc

Very much agreed.

i used these a few years ago at my running club and not only did they help my anaerobic rates up for my long distance running they also enabled me to do more press ups without getting knackered.

Hijacking the thread a bit -

Anyone know any good rowing workouts, or where I can find some?

What sort of setting should you be looking at it? I.e, the 1-10 resistance thingy.

yeah definitely use rowing machines, i think they are really beneficial for your fitness and you will definitely notice improvements i did, i usually do 5000 meters but occasionally do the 500 meter sprints you will not regret using them and as people have said it is low impact but if you push it your legs get really worked and you feel like they are going to fall of.

pain is glory my friend.

just passed the medical.
