When will running boomers stop living in the past (and destroying their knees) when something infinitely better is just right there waiting for them?

    I like it because they're always free, and it works upper body too. Only downside is you're not exposing yourself to your own bodyweight as resistance which is always a good reference for your own fitness. I also worry that I'm not doing my back any favors when I get tired and start to have sloppy form, but I agree it's the best cardio and it forces you to work hard

    It is good, it's pretty much the only upper body cardio machine out there. Pulling/back work is also underrated for posture gains, good breathing (keeps shoulders back and chest spread/open), and massive strength/endurance gains in your grip, bis, shoulders, and back

    Well let's see
    > Costs around 5000$ for a generic model
    > Weighs around 400-500 pounds
    > Does exactly the same as Tyson push ups except with pull instead of push
    > Takes up about the third of a room
    So that's why

    But hey enjoy it if you like it. Just don't be surprised when people are more rational

      Is it that expensive in burgerland? I got mine for 850€ with water resistance on a black friday and it does its job really well.
      > Takes up about the third of a room
      Most can be put up, no? But they do need space when put down, true.

        got mine for 900 USD with free shipping. mine can be put up sort of, you can disconnect the rack the seat sits on from the main part.

        gotta get an assault bike nexts, those are cheaper at around 845 USD

      you and most people overestimate how much space a rower takes
      they're either foldable or you can just put them on vertical for storage too
      if an assembled rower on vertical is somehow taking "too much space" then the problem is on you for living in a tiny cubicle

          That's the gold standard for rowers, there's competitions using that exact same model (more popular than actual rowing if we go by youtube views). There's also plenty of replacement parts in case something does break.

      What are some good times to go for or good distances to do in a certain time
      Times for 2k, 5k and 10k?
      Distances for 20min, 30min and 1h?

        2k sub 7 minutes, 10k sub 38 minutes. I haven't tested my 5k time and it's not a typical racing distance so I can't give you an idea.

    >t. never has introduced boomers to exercise
    Rowers suck and boomers find them difficult too. The best cardio machine is unironically a stationary bike and maybe an assault bike. So comfy for LISS cardio, comfy enough that almost everyone will adhere to using them.

    kek. i’d rather do resistance training instead of looking like a skeleton with bad joints. if you’re trying to burn calories just walk up a hill, it’s free and actually builds muscle.

      you're not supposed to be using every inch of your strength to pull the handle
      you're supposed to find a comfortable resistance that you can get your heart racing on by pulling as fast as possible (without breaking form)

    I just started at a new Gym, old one was privately owned $35 a fortnight new one is State owned attached to the leisure centre only $27 a fortnight which gets me Gym + Sauna, pools, spa etc.
    All the equipment is technogym the government must have given these cunts alot of money best equipped I've seen in a while 6 power racks 4 Oly platforms just all nice new shit basically no one trains there as they probably think it's no good
    Anyway they have these skillmills and I acctually really like them for cardio you can run on them which feels lower impact on the knees due to the curve and if you get bored you can crank it up mid run and do a sled push or do some fancy sideways shit
