    unnecessary......



    OP, as mentioned by "merkong" do what you can on it and once you can, set up a nice foundation and then step up to a real gym and do some work..

    Considering you are 15, it's not a bad investment, as I said to build on form, find a proper rep range, etc.

    I almost got a bowflex myself before getting the Iron Master dumbbell setup. I know guys who got decent size from using bowflex. I did get some bodylastics resistance bands (Strongman Ed.). Esentially the same concept as Bowflex, much cheaper, and now with dumbbells, I can use the ankle straps around the dumbbell when I need to change up my routine.

    Here is an example of what can be achieved with just a band type training (basically no tension at the start and lots of tension at the end of the movement). And this was taken long before steroids or proper nutrition knowledge.

    http://www.oldtimestrongman.com/blog...d-pulling.html

    I also think free weights are superior, which is why I went with dumbbells. I also think how you respond to band type training is probably mostly genetic. I got pretty big just off bands but not a whole lot stronger in real world applications except for martial arts.

    As far as a workout plan using the bowflex...

    It's basically the same for anything. Use compound movements- squat, bench, incline bench, ect. Anywhere from 5-12 reps till you can't maintain your form. Keep trying to constantly up the resistance. If you can figure how to one leg squat using the bowflex, you'd be good to go for quite a long time, if not forever.

    I have the power pro line and have used the bowflex body plan. Its based on the bench bowflexes but can be adapted to any model.

    I have been quite satisfied with mine. And you can pick up any magazine or workout on this site or anywhere else and adapt it for your machine. Where else can you do that in the comfort of your home. Yes, you would be out more money then the cost of your machine and need probably a bigger basement if you acquired free weights and pulley station. And that does not include the spotter if you are lifting more weight then you can handle. So much more safe with the Bowflex.

    no one was disagreeing with you (at least I wasn't), but your comments, such as the one below, were unnecessary.

    You could have / should have said it better just like "heavy beats" said.

    And I would hope that someone who has a brain that DOES buy a BowFlex does not take that 20 minute workout, 3x a week serious....though I am also sure that someone who is starting out, they could benefit from a Bowflex as such....

    Go to a real gym bro, or if not, invest in some freeweights. Bowflex has incredibly unnatural movements. Not good for BBing or anything else really.

    Whats with all the negative BS responses?

    Hey,

    Working out in any form is a start. You can make progress with a Bowflex Extreme. Work out 4-5 days a week and exaggerate the program. This is a place to start.

    People who are injured and working toward recovery are often given rubber stretch bands to work out with to regain flexibility the functionality of injured areas. Bowflex is an exaggerated version of bands.

    Once you begin feeling fit, add some dumbbells to your lifting program. There are some excellent home dumbbell workout plans out there.

    Ignore the idiot comments out there!

    Best of luck!

    How much did you pay for the Bowflex?

    Beyond novice, 5 3 1 or see above:)

    Unless it is obvious to anyone who isn't blind that you lift weights, you might still benefit from a little more attention to big basic barbell exercises for enough reps:).

    My bowflex holds stuff very nicely, I can put laundry on there for days and it keeps them nice and straight.

    If you're looking for some awesome size gains without much focus on strength, I've found one of the perfect yet bizarre routines that fits is the German volume training routine. I bought dumbbells a pull up bar installed in a doorway, an ez bar and about one hundred fifty lbs of weights that fit the ez bar and the dumbbells. With the Bowflex already have an adjustable bench. I utilized the Bowflex for all exercises listed in the second sets of the routine (the first sets being 10 sets of 10 reps of 65℅ of your 1RM or one rep max if memory serves me well super setted with an opposing muscle group) the change up into resistance the second sets involved in the routine kept my muscles guessing and growing nicely. The equipment besides the Bowflex was bought at Walmart. All name brand iron for super cheap.

    Good luck.

    You made an account to bump a 7 year old thread already bumped 3 years ago? Why.
