Rowing a canoe works the chest muscles, the forearm, bicep and tricep muscles, the back muscles, all four groups of stomach muscles, the heart muscles and, depending on the configuration of the canoe, possibly the quadricep muscles if there is somewhere in the canoe to plant your feet so that you can push with your legs.

along with the muscles outlined by others on here, i would also advise the inclusion of the latissimus dorsi which is the muscle under your arms our down the side of your back which is used a lot in this movement

Canoeing works various muscle groups throughout the body, making it a great workout for anybody. The main groups that are used are the deltoids (or shoulder muscles) and the bicep/triceps. The more you put your entire body into the rowing, the more you work your deltoid and trapezious muscles

Canoeing is an excellent exercise for your bicep muscles in the arms. It also exercises your whole back and muscles in the torso of your body.Leg muscles are exercised a little as you balance.Muscles in your shoulders are exercised as you swing the paddle from side to side.
