Duration Rowing Workouts
You may think with all the science that now dominates sports and fitness training, that just sitting and rowing until you can't row no more is a waste of your time. But I would argue that while heart rate, time trial and interval sessions are unquestionably valuable - there is still a benefit to duration rowing.
The time will differ from rower to rower. For some, a long row could mean 30 minutes, for an elite rower the time could approach two hours, but regardless of your fitness, a 'just sit and row' session has its advantages. Just as a runner can get into The Zone (also known as The Flow) on a long run, so can a rower. Before we get onto the practical side of duration rowing, let's look at the mental benefits.
