The Tuesday NYTimes (12/3/13) noted in an article by Gretchen Reynolds titled "A Holiday Glutton's Antidote" that daily exercise provides a benefit greater than burning calories. A study in England described in The Journal of Physiology showed that even if members of the study who exercised increased their caloric intake to account for the burned calories, those "who had exercised once a day . . . were not similarly affected" as those in the study who did not exercise (for whom negative effects included problems with blood sugar, fat cells and genetic test results). And this was after only one week of having all participants over-eat.
Imagine what a daily row can do for your body's health and fitness. The ability of the human body to restore itself and to fight disease is amazing. Support it with exercise. Row today.
