But 70% of the boats power comes from your quads and glutes. Ozeri estimates that during a 45-minute class, a rower will do the equivalent of 1,200 leg presses, burning roughly 850 calories. We signed up for the novice class at Brooklyn Crew and found that nailing the rhythm of the stroke is half the battle. Legs, arms, arms, legs, we repeated to ourselves, as we focused on our form in the studio mirror. Twenty minutes into the class, it wasnt our shoulders or back feeling the burn, but our glutes. <br>Source: http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/rowing-latest-calorie-burning-exercise-trend-article-1.1502965
The new quantified gym opened recently in San Diego, with plans to open locations in Californias Bay Area, Colorado, and New York next year. Over the http://www.prweb.com/releases/2013/10/prweb11222047.htm next few years, the company plans to open some 100 fitness studios around the United States. In San Diego, the studio doesnt feature a traditional gym registration desk, but a lounge area with an iPad where members check themselves in. Also, you wont find any treadmills or weights of any kind, just an array of 16 or so Fitwalls, or vertical training modalities, which tower more than 2m tall with four moving rungs for your feet, four permanent tiers to grip, and an attached iPad to monitor your workouts. The Fitwall can accommodate 900 different exercises, and each 40-minute class covers strength, cardio, and flexibility, all led by a certified Fitwall instructor. <br>Source: http://www.thestar.com.my/Lifestyle/Health/Fitness/2013/11/02/Workouts-on-a-wall.aspx

But heres the thing: Even though its now scientifically proven that CrossFit boosts endurance, we wouldnt be able to sleep at night if we told you to jump blindly on the CrossFit bandwagon if youve never done it before. Why? CrossFit is hardlike, really hard. For one thing, it was recently linked to rhabdomyolysis , a scary medical condition resulting from pushing yourself too hard. And the lead researcher of the CrossFit study, John Porcari, head of the University of Wisconsins Clinical Exercise Physiology Program, even said that its intensity is off the charts. That said, were obviously in favor of a good workout, so if you choose to go down the CrossFit road, 1) props, and 2) be sure to take care of yourself in the process. <br>Source: http://www.foxnews.com/health/2013/11/04/does-crossfit-really-work/
