NOHRD WaterGrinder (Ash)
The NOHRD WaterGrinder (Ash) from WaterRower
The NOHRD WaterGrinder is available in Ash, Cherry and Walnut Please see similar items tab below.
The WaterGrinder is unique in both style and concept, utilising the time proven adaptive resistance of the patented WaterRower drum which unlike most of the imitations of this design, doesn't have any method of resistance adjustment because it doesn't require any resistance adjustment as it's completely self regulating depending on workrate applied to the water mass.
Design simplicity means the WaterRower WaterGrinder is backed by the brilliant and proven WaterRower track record of reliabillity. Without doubt THE very best water Resistance upper body conditioning machine with a real-world sports aplication.
The WaterGrinder will match not just your WaterRower in material used, but craftsmanship, design and unsurpassable functionality and genius.
This WaterGrinder is made from Ash to match the Natural (ash) WaterRower and also to match the rest of the NoHrd products including Swing bells, Slimbeam and Wall bars.
With regards to operation of the WaterGrinder, as the drum is only effective when roatated in one direction the user can operate the WaterGrinder from one side either standing or seated to rotate the handles in a forwards motion and by switching the seat and monitor to the opposite side the handles will need to be rotated backwards thereby providing both forwards and backwards operation.
Some questions we've been asked have beenwith regards to whether the seat is included which it is, and whether the workout monitor is the latest version (and included) which again, being that the WaterGrinders a made to order in Germany they are always the very latest specification and design as detailed on nohrd.com website.
The WaterGrinder seat can be hooked in on both sides in 3 different positions each. The WaterGrinder is set on 2 powder-coated steel arms, curved in such a way that even wheelchair users can train at the machine.
The hand pedals of the WaterGrinder can be set in various height positions which allows you to further adjust the resistance. The smaller the rotation the higher the intensity.
The WaterGrinder paddle is shaped ergonomically and pushes the water extremely efficiently, thanks to its concave surface. Water resistance can be self-determined ie. within each movement, resistance adapts to strength input.
The WaterGrinder G1 performance monitor can be swung to each side while a balance sensor recognises its position. This allows for training on each side of the machine. The buttons function on a touch-screen principle. The WaterGrinder G1 performance monitor provides you with an extensive range of training possibilities:
- Time / Distance-Training
Determine the time or distance you want to master and concentrate solely on reaching your goal.
- Versatility Drill-Training
Choose this program for varying and unpredictable training stimuli. Determine your workout-focus which will then be completed by constant variation.
- Racing Drill-Training Select the racing drill function and go up against either a virtual or real opponent, hoisting sails (you set how many) as fast as possible. This is about winning or losing; again, another training-focus: high intensity guaranteed!
Depending on the program you will receive the following parameters: rotational speed, pulse rate, time, distance, performance in watt, ie calories/hour.
The Water Tank
The WaterGrinder resistance is generated in the water tank. No presetting is necessary to create the unique resistance. The slower you turn the handle the lower the resistance, as you speed up the cranking speed the resistance increases proportionately.
WaterRower says the following about the WaterGrinder:
In sailing it is the grinder's task to transform wind into propulsion by hoisting the sails as quickly as possible. Grinders do the backbreaking work on bord and are undoubtedly high-performance athletes. Using maximum physical strength and stamina, grinders hoist the sails by cranking the winches. Sailors today do this by performing a classic cranking or grinding movement.
WaterRower's WaterGrinder now provides you with the chance to pursue this sport at home, without having to deny yourself the element of water. Achieve the fitness of a racing grinder in the process!
