1.
A sport in which 1 to 8 people sit on a seat going backwards while most likely being steered by a coxswain. Rowing also called crew, is one of the most physically demanding sports ever created working every major muscle group in your body. People on the same crew team typically become like family because of the constant travel to regattas to race.
I do rowing and don't have time for anything else. My legs always hurt after rowing.
