A lever acts as a damper for the movement to make you feel that you are rowing on water with some resistance. The resistance can be adjusted according to the power of the user. A bodybuilder can use it as effectively as an old person. So essentially, the harder you pull, the more resistance you will feel as resistance is generated by a spinning flywheel.
