Please note that rowing exercises do and will strengthen your back and will help alleviate lower back pain. The compact size and space saving design will be especially good for those that live in smaller apartments. The seat can be a little uncomfortable after half an hour or so and you may also want to invest in a seat cover. Your body weight drives the legs and the adjustable hydraulic resistance is for the tension on your arms. You can adjust the resistance through the manual control knob underneath according to what you can handle or how much you want to push on the day. It is not an expensive product for its build quality and features and offers an outstanding value for money.
