    Rowing for cardio?

    My gym has a concept 2 rowing machine, how good would this be for cardio? I usually do about 1500-2000m on it.

    Rowing is a good cardio, but not as good as the elliptical or treadmill.

    Treadmills suck.

    If you're going to do that type of activity, take it outside. There's a pretty substantial difference between moving your legs to keep from falling off a moving conveyor belt and actually having to move your body from point A to point B.
    Lifts:
    Bench: 305lb
    Deadlift: 415lb
    Dip: bodyweight + 230lb
    Pull-up: bodyweight x2

    "There's a lot of 5'11 200-225 lbs guys with 10-12% body fat on the Internet. In reality, their "10-12%" body fat is more like 15% body fat or more. Everyone thinks they're on their way to single digit body fat as soon as they see a blurry four-pack in the right lighting. Your final body weight at 5-6% will be a lot less than what you think."

    ^ Yeah I never use the treadmill. We have a 5.5 mile loop around campus or basketball courts for me to get cardio in.

    I pretty much hate treadmills too but they come in handy sometimes. I wish I had one.

    OP: Rowing is a great form of cardio. I haven't seen to many Fat rowers in my day.

    treadmills = boring, I use mine at home when I dont have nothing else to do.

    at the gym I try to use anything else but them. I rather walk outside than on a treadmill.

    I never tried the rowing machine at the gym I may do that this weekend.

    I love rowing, but haven't done it in years.

    Concept2 makes some of the best rowers in the business.

    Row!
