Row 30 minutes, 3 times a week, for 3 weeks

Rowing is a low impact activity (reducing the chances of joint injury) and uses 70% of the body’s muscles dynamically; this means it burns a lot of calories!!! :-) For 3 weeks your challenge is to row 3 times per week for 30 minutes. Each session after a 5min warm up complete 15 minutes rowing followed by 2mins rest followed by another 15 minutes rowing. If you have access to a heart rate monitor try maintaining 70-80% of your age predicted heart rate (220-age). There is some great information on the American college of exercise and fitness (ACSM) website about heart rate intensities and the benefits of this type of exercise (cardio). This website was great for my training and getting the most out of my workout http://www.straightforwardfitness.com/acsm-cardio-guidelines.html. This challenge is for anyone, especially those looking to improve fitness and loose a few pounds.
