So let me clear this up. You lose body fat around your body equally, you can't "spot reduce" areas of your body, such as stomach, or back or whatever.
Having a larger muscle base means you can lose less fat to be leaner and to seem in better shape.
I definitely wouldn't recommend an hour on the rower. Straight conditioning isn't effective for weight loss.
The more muscle you have, the stonger your joints, ligaments and bones get. The more muscle you have the more energy your body burns just by being alive.
Do 45 mins of weights, then 15 mins of rower or whatever machine you'd like to get better results. I promise you weights are your best bet to weight loss, apart from nutrition.
For weights recommendations, i'd say start at 3-4x per week, and focus on compound movements.
Bench press (barbell/dumbell)
If I could choose 5 compound movements to do in the gym every-time to get the best results i'd choose.
3. Bench Press
4. Barbell Row
5. Military Press
Targeting specific areas for muscle gain is easier than trying to just loose the fat. It's way easier to convert to muscle.
They still have rowing machines. I thought them died out in the 1950s.
