Aerobic and resistance exercises are recommended for elderly people to help maintain their health. Rowing involves almost all of the muscles in the body and may have elements of both aerobic and resistance exercise. Rowing and indoor rowing exercise using ergometers have been widely used among elderly adults and young individuals worldwide. Because rowing is practiced on a seat, less impact is placed upon the knee joints, making it safe for elderly people. It has been reported that elderly male… Expand
Effect of Indoor Rowing Exercise on Body Composition, Blood Glucose, and Lipid Profile Among Obesity: A Pilot Study
TLDR
There are changes in BMI following indoor rowing exercises among obese subjects, and body mass index (BMI) in experimental group altered with p <.05, whereas for the other variable there are no significant changes. Expand
Bone mass and bone metabolic indices in male master rowers
TLDR
The systematic training of master rowers has beneficial effects on total and regional BMD and may be recommended for preventing osteoporosis and the index of homeostasis model assessment insulin resistance. Expand

Arterial compliance of rowers: implications for combined aerobic and strength training on arterial elasticity.
TLDR
Regular rowing exercise in middle-aged and older adults is associated with a favorable effect on the elastic properties of the central arteries, and the results suggest that simultaneously performed endurance training may negate the stiffening effects of strength training. Expand
EFFECT OF LONG-TERM EXERCISE ON WALKING ABILITY IN ELDERLY PEOPLE
In order to clarify the effect of exercise on the walking performance and the muscle volume in lower limbs, elderly athletes long continuing to be trained and untrained elderly were compared withExpand
Elderly oarsmen have larger trunk and thigh muscles and greater strength than age-matched untrained men
TLDR
It is suggested that rowing exercise is a favorable training modality for the trunk muscles, especially psoas major and that it improves thigh muscle size and function in elderly men. Expand
American College of Sports Medicine position stand. Exercise and physical activity for older adults.
TLDR
The evidence reviewed in this Position Stand is generally consistent with prior American College of Sports Medicine statements on the types and amounts of physical activity recommended for older adults as well as the recently published 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. Expand
American College of Sports Medicine Position Stand. The recommended quantity and quality of exercise for developing and maintaining cardiorespiratory and muscular fitness, and flexibility in healthy adults.
TLDR
A well-rounded training program including aerobic and resistance training, and flexibility exercises is recommended, and a sliding scale as to the amount of time allotted and intensity of effort should be carefully gauged for the cardiorespiratory, muscular strength and endurance, and flexible components of the program.

TLDR
It is concluded that high-resistance weight training leads to significant gains in muscle strength, size, and functional mobility among frail residents of nursing homes up to 96 years of age. Expand
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN REDUCTION OF HIP JOINT AND THIGH MUSCLE AND WALKING ABILITY IN ELDERLY PEOPLE
TLDR
Results indicate that the muscle atrophy with aging in psoas major and thigh muscle extensor is a factor responsible for the decrease in walking speed. Expand
Habitual rowing exercise is associated with high physical fitness without affecting arterial stiffness in older men
TLDR
It is suggested that habitual rowing exercise in older men is associated with high muscle power and aerobic capacity, and favourable blood lipid profile without affecting arterial stiffness or plasma levels of endotheline-1 and NO. Expand
Aging, Habitual Exercise, and Dynamic Arterial Compliance
TLDR
Regular aerobic-endurance exercise attenuates age-related reductions in central arterial compliance and restores levels in previously sedentary healthy middle-aged and older men. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that exercise can improve endurance, strength, gait, and function in chronically impaired, fall-prone elderly persons. Expand
