Has any body done any indoor rowing to become a better bike rider.Just curious i done a bit of rowing on a concept2 and found cycling to be much much easier.I stopped doing it because i found it a bit boring and i found cycling much tougher since
I was rowing fairly regularly for about 6 weeks in January until the middle of February, in addition to my indoor cycling. I enjoyed it and it made for some variety.
Right now I don't think it would be a good idea for me, but hopefully I'll be able to get back into it (and/or weightlifting) again in the fall/winter.
I find that when my upper body and core are muscular I perch better on my saddle, last longer more comfortably, and climb better.
