Rowing is a full-body strength endurance sport
Have you ever tried rowing a boat? You should, because rowing is a full-body strength endurance sport that has an aerobic and an anaerobic component. According to the Annals of Rehabilitation Medicine, dynamic balance control is said to be disruptive in vision-deprived conditions, and anatomical deformities result in asymmetric muscle strength. Therefore, rowing exercises that require a balanced symmetrical movement could help people with visual impairments, especially those with scoliosis.
Rowing is also helpful for women who have breast cancer
Rowing is a great exercise for everyone, and women who have survived breast cancer have also found it to be an activity that improves the effects of the disease. It helps relieve pain, improve muscle activation, increase range of motion in the upper limbs, and increase strength and muscle function. Among the outdoor activities, rowing is considered to be one of the most comprehensive water sports. It includes the work of the musculature of the upper and lower limbs and almost all of the body’s musculature, according to the International Journal of Environmental Research And Public Health.
It is a sport that performs symmetrical movements that do not require a forced position and that combine the work of aerobic endurance and strength. This type of activity is believed to improve the quality of life of cancer patients, including psychological, social, physical, and emotional aspects. It promotes their rehabilitation, their self-esteem and helps normalize their daily life.
Rowing has psychosocial benefits for cancer survivors because it is a team sport. It encourages the building of social relationships and they find the support they need from other women who have been through or are facing the same situation.
