Can I Lose Weight Using A Rowing Machine

Home exercises to lose weight is what should you do. Exercise is a crucial part to go alongside your diet. You will improve by changing your diet, but you will massively improve if you also undergo a strict exercise plan to lose weight as well.

First, you really ought to be setting the scene for your attempt but to do so make sure that you have the requirements and have a great weight loss diet firmly in place.

There are lots of exercises that can be done in the comfort of our home although, depending on what it is and how much you are attempting to lose. However, you may have to have a small investment. It is easy to do home exercises to lose weight.

Home Exercises To Lose Weight

Number 1

 The Rowing Machine

Try this as one of your 6 home exercises to lose weight. It will help you will this rowing machine


If you do go ahead and spend a little (WHICH IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT YOUR WEIGHT LOSS YOU WILL) Then you will have to purchase one or both of these two pieces of apparatus, Firstly there is the rowing machine.

There is one that I highly recommend. It will help you to naturally lose weight and is for sale at a bargain price on this site.

Number 2

The Exercise Bike

The second is an EB (exercise bike), an absolute must if you wish to exercise at home. The bike, like the rowing machine, is excellent for your cardiovascular system (breathing and recovery)

The Marcy ME-709 Bike


The quicker your breathing returns to the normal comfortable range then generally the fitter you are. Both of these are excellent items; they are available to purchase right here on my site.

 Number 3

The Stomach Crunch

The Classic, A Cartoon Of A Man Doing A Sit-Up


In another post, I do suggest this next exercise, and I cannot stress it enough. It is the stomach crunch. Be seated and lie flat on your back in an open space. It does not, however, have to be a huge area as you will only be moving up and down and not in the vicinity.


Lie straight and cross your arms on your chest as it is easy to form a bad habit of using them to “lever” your way up to count one which makes it simpler and will cheat you out of the maximum effect of them.

You will get extra assistance when purchasing something that goes hand in glove with this exercise such as a sit-up frame. If you are not used to exercising then I suggest you try this out.

With yourself in a perfectly horizontal position bring the top half of your body 6 inches off the ground, You must keep your back STRAIGHT AND REMAIN FOCUSED ON THE CEILING.

Start with doing 30 and when you have done this take a 2-minute rest. No more than this, though. Then start again and do 25. Then two-minute rest then 20 all the way down to five.

(You follow?) Each 5 lessening and all with a 2-minute break, Then when you have done down to and including the five the process is then repeated in reverse.

This is what is called a pyramid and will strengthen your core and your abs will also tone and tighten the more frequently it is done.This is purely a strength exercise and not a cardiovascular workout and will most DEFINITELY help you to lose weight naturally.

Number 4


Next, we move on to squat thrusts. These are great for the legs and rectus abdomini (STOMACH MUSCLES) It is also like the exercise bike and rowing machine an intense cardiovascular workout.


Simply push yourself to a place that you are comfortable with then stop. Make a mental note of that number and then decrease in increments of 5.

Remember you have to climb back up the pyramid so don’t make it an impossible task. You must finish with the number that you started with so try maybe 15 to start with and then 10 then 5 and back up.

This is just an example as I am well aware that fitness levels will differ enormously.

Number 5

Jogging On The Spot

Jogging on the spot. There is a lot to be said for this type of exercise. It is unfortunate that I can’t partake in it as my disability will not allow it.

This is nearly as effective as a treadmill so you can lose weight naturally by doing this. Like the exercise bike and the treadmill, it is an excellent cardio workout too and will help you towards a fitter and lighter you.

Set yourself a time limit and stick to the duration you set. You must feel shattered and glad to sit when you have finished. The bonus with this is it can be done absolutely anywhere that you can stand.

 Number 6

The Press-up

The press up is yet another exercise that used to be very common but over the last decade has somewhat dwindled in popularity. Again this is not a cardio workout but when combined with these it will boost your overall level of fitness.

Start off with the same fundamental principle as you did in the squat thrusts. Find a number which you are pretty MAXED OUT at and then decrease in increments then rise again to finish on that number.

To reach that number as with all of these individual exercises should be a superhuman effort. As your fitness gets better you will be able to raise the numbers of your pyramids.

Remember what I have alluded to in other posts that you MUST combine with a really good, healthy weight loss diet. It is an essential component by itself but will work 10 x better when they are adjacent to one another. Side by side if you like.

As a lady compounded my thoughts (backed them up) I am aware that not ever one can indeed do these kinds of exercise and this could be down to not just being overweight but also due to medical conditions such as arthritis.
