What do you guys thing of using the handcycle as a substitute for rowing? Right now I use an alternating motion (not unlike swimming in some respects) on a stationary handcycle (using air resistance against a fan) as part of a shoulder rehab program. As the shoulder gets stronger, I hope to use the handcycle as an integral part of my fitness plan and for the time being, substitute it for the rowing machine to keep any possible traction off my shoulder. Though it doesn't involve lower body, it does do a good job of working the major muscle groups of the upper body including the back - especially if you go in both directions.
