Hoist the sails, turn wind into propulsion, reel in the forces of wind and water – this is the backbreaking task of a grinder onboard a racing yacht. Not to be underestimated in their exertion of physical strength and endurance, grinders are true high-performance athletes.
The Oak WaterGrinder provides a truly exceptional form of upperbody conditioning with the constantly variable water resistance providing dynamic adaptation to all levels of intensity.
The Oak WaterGrinder is another perfect match to the entire WaterRower and NOHrD range of fitness and gym equipment made from oak wood. Not only that oak has been a firm favourite for furnitiure in the UK at least for the last 20 or so years, and of course oak flooring will always remain popular in the home for its colour and durabillity so why not get your gym and fitness equipment to match.
Exercise-bikes, cross/eliptical-trainers and treadmills are all highly effective machines, however they mainly condition the cardiovascular system via the lower extremities (glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings), resulting in a clear upper body conditioning deficit. Rowing is an excellent upper AND lower body conditioning exercise but has very limited impact on on chest, triceps and front deltoid muscles; but the WaterGrinder offers an extremely unique solution...
The WaterRower WaterGrinder counteracts this issue, as it works to condition your entire upper body- arms, shoulders, chest and abs, as well as your entire back musculature. The upper body joints and spine will receive the exact necessary stress and motion impulses, crucial to mobility.
Our legs are designed to endure long-term stress, rendering them slow to be effectively stimulated during exercise. The arms, however, are made for shorter actions. The WaterGrinder (Oak in this instance) provides fast muscle fatigue through shorter, extremely effective training sessions. The WaterGrinder trains strength and endurance simultaneously.
