I just bought my wedding dress today (yay!) and had mentioned to the boutique attendant that my plan for toning up and losing 5-10 pounds was to use my rowing machine daily along with some workouts via YouTube. I was really surprised when she very quickly warned me not to row too much as that might bulk up my back muscles and cause my dress to no longer zip.
From what I understand, rowing does help to build lean muscle and tone, but generally doesn't bulk people up. I generally row for 30 minutes 5-6 days a week and really enjoy doing it, but now I am afraid of no longer fitting into my dress because of it. Should this be a concern and should I maybe decrease the amount I am rowing? Thank you!
