    Treadmill/Indoor rowing

    Recently I experienced a mild ankle pain, so I am substituting running for rowing until I feel better... Does anyone know how long and at what speed should I row in order to get the same cardiovascular, calorie-burning and strength effects as running for 35' at 11-13 km/h ? Thanks a lot...

    I don't think there is an exact trade off since they work very different muscle but I do the same thing when the weather outside doesn't support running. I generally just row for the amount of time that I would have been running. and try to keep a pace that allows me to do that. I would say play with it a bit and see how you do.

    My wife takes a bit different approach though. She will go super hard for 5 minutes then back down or stop and do something else for 5 minutes and repeat. Not sure if this is better or not but I don't sprint so I haven't done it.

    Either way the calorie burn won't be as good but rowing will wreck your upper body way more than running so be ready for that.

      Azercord I used to row but I turned to running and now I'm addicted... I just want not to lose cardiovascular gains and have the same calorie expenditure... I may go over the top a little (or a lot...) but I hope someone sympathize with me...
