642 Things #12 – Swish

The gentle lapping waves create a calming noise, a swish of gentle rushing water, cascading against the sides. Pushed by the plastic blades, the resistance from the water creates tension in the pull strap. Perfectly circular, the blades push the water in a pulsing pattern. Waves from the blades move faster as the pull strap is pulled in and out.

A blend of natural resistance and design, the water rower is a full-body exercise, easy to see it’s attraction to athletes for cross-training. The sounds of the water rushing with the blades and against the walls of the tank are relaxing and comforting. Reminiscent of gentle waves on a calm night at the ocean, they create a beat to keep pace with. As your stroke rate increases, the rushing water pace increases.

Rushing, rowing, repeat.
