Re: DIY Rowing Machine

It's better than nothing, OTOH it isn't any better than the seated row w/sliding seat on the weight machines. It's just a weight w/linear response, a rower has a flywheel/air resistance which reacts to your acceleration dynamically and results in an entirely different workout

Like you said, for the amount of work it's better to get a Model B rower from craigslist, and you'll get a better workout too.
