Various info & facts for absolute beginners with a WaterRower indoor rowing machine. Some of this may apply to other brands as well.
Suggested water levels:
- 12-14 liters – Children
- 14-16 liters – Non-Athletes
- 16-18 liters – Athletes
Use regular tap water. This contains additives which deter the growth of algae. Distilled/purified water has these additives removed, promoting algae growth and should therefore be avoided.
What I would really like is a WaterRower online logbook, like Concept2 has. Has anyone come across such a thing for WaterRower? (Not something complicated that requires me to hook up my rower to a PC. Just some simple site where I can enter results)
