The Ergatta Rower leverages WaterRower's unique water tank and flywheel, designed to replicate the physical dynamics, physiological benefits and aesthetic pleasure of rowing on water. But why do we believe water resistance is the best over other types of resistance (air, hydraulic-piston, magnetic)? Explore the the top 5 benefits of using water resistance for indoor rowing:
TOP 5 BENEFITS OF WATER RESISTANCE FOR INDOOR ROWING
EASY ON THE BACK
Evenly distributes effort throughout the stroke to put less strain on the lower back and makes your abs and arms pick up more of the work.
SELF REGULATED RESISTANCE
Water resistance is self-determining, meaning it precisely adjusts to the individual movement and strength input of the rower. By the "rule of cubes", the amount of work you apply dictates the speed at which you row; row harder and you go faster, row easier and you go slower.
The quiet, soothing sound of water won’t wake your housemates and spares you from the high-pitched electromagnetic buzz or whining air of other resistances types. Training is calm and soothing, thanks to the pleasant, rhythmic swish of water.
SMOOTH AND EVEN STROKE
A uniform stroke is essential to spreading the work more evenly over the muscle groups, working them in proportion to their strength, optimizing exercise benefit. Plus, there is no jerkiness or jarring which is often associated with conventional mechanical rowing machines, reducing the risk of injury.
Water will show no signs of wear and tear - just place a purification tablet into the water basin to every 6-12 months to keep it clean.
