If you are using a concept2 and are using mostly legs, you are doing it wrong.
I train with a concept2 using the correct technique and legs have almost no part in rowing.

The stomach and upper body cop a hiding, as does the cardio.

Wat do u push off with every stroke? I agree it is a very good cardio/core workout but reckon legs play a very big part also!

Legs, but there is almost no resistance, on purpose.
Very little effort is needed to roll back, certainly not designed to work the legs.

That is so far wrong its not funny. The legs is where all the power in rowing comes from. The stroke starts with driving through the legs, the arms and back are only used at the end of a stroke (the catch)

You are not using correct technique at all, and probably shouldnt be giving advice on rowing.

Link to a good discussion on a rowing forum about driving through the legs.

What you said. Biggest muscles (legs) provide the most momentum. Upper body supplements the pull.. last 1/3.
get in a surf boat and pull with your arms mate it does not work.
