My legs are already in pretty good shape from so much riding, but even they feel the burn after 30 minutes of rowing. I row for 30 minutes and then ride for 30 minutes, and my legs are sore right at the beginning of my ride. They tend to loosen up after a few minutes of pedaling, though.
I set it at around five, but I've heard people say 3 mimics the water - doesn't that seem too easy for being out on the water ? I guess if even at 3 if you pull hard enough then that can be a serious workout.
