8 Erg Workout Ideas for Kids

Mar 19, 2020

If you have an erg, and kids, there are many fun ways to get those kids active at home. Here are a few of our favorite workouts, suitable for all ages. We also offer suggestions for setting up the RowErg for kids.

  1. Music makes working out fun. Put on your favorite song(s) and take turns rowing, skiing or riding to the beat. Try to match the rhythm of the song. You can try working harder through each chorus or row every other song. (Pop songs tend to be about three minutes long each. Add stretches and additional exercises as you rest.)
  2. Draw a pyramid. What does it look like? Try a “pyramid workout”. Why is it called a pyramid? Workout: 100m row / 1:00 rest / 200m row / 1:00 rest / 300m row / 1:00 rest / 400m row / 1:00 rest / 300m row / 1:00 rest / 200m row / 1:00 rest / 100 row. Continue Reading ›
