Move your gym workout onto water. Rowing and kayaking make for challenging cardiovascular workouts. If you’ve ever used the rowing machine in the gym, you know how difficult a workout it can be. Rowing and kayaking work the arms, shoulders, back and core muscles. Unlike the gym there is a lot more incentive to keep going than just to break a sweat. Rowing or kayaking on a lake, river or bay makes for a wonderful and scenic outing, and is just about as far away from the hustle and bustle of the rat-race as you can get.
Calorie burn: Kayaking and rowing burn about 250 calories.
