Rowing in general provides a full body workout that is also mentally challenging. Sculling is beneficial for rowers for numerous reasons: when learning the symmetry of the movement helps master the stroke more quickly. Also the small boat size encourages a better stroke as imperfections and inconsistencies are revealed more readily than a larger boat.

Rowing is a good cardiovascular exercise that also places demand on the muscles in the upper body so may contribute to hypertrophy(though not as significant as Weightlifting)
