2 Rowing Machine Rules

If you are one of those people who do not like rowing and do not consider it to be effective then you might actually be doing it all wrong. Rowing correctly is very important because only then will it affect your body in the right way. So to help you row better, below in this article I have covered 2 rowing machines rules you should follow.

Your grip should not be too tight

If you are holding the handle too tightly, you are doing it wrong. You need not hold the handle tightly. Just make sure you keep hold the handle tightly enough to maintain a proper grip and not lose it while you row. The problem with holding the handle to hard is that it can tire your hands. Your arm will and it can also cause burns on your palm and fingers.
