    ISO7X - Bullworker

    Has anyone tried the ISO7X Bullworker?

    Sports Authority is having a sale, "IRON GYM Xtreme
    SAVE 50%, Purchase ISO7X at $29.99 and get the IRON GYM Xtreme 50% OFF".

    I want the Iron Gym Xtreme, but if the ISO7X is a good deal than I will pick this up.

    I've cut weight to where I want to be and now I want to build strength/muscle.

    Thanks

    Not sarcastic but rather stating what I feel your post is.

    You say no, don't do it. Well...... WHY?

    Lame posts help no one even if you have meant to help the OP.

    At least there is some interest in my thread!

    Constructive criticism or compliments about ISO7X are appreciated.

    Do you know what the ISO7X Bullworker is? It's a complete joke of a product, worse than Bowflex. It's one of those TV products you see at 3 in the morning. It's right at the level of "The Blade," the thing you wiggle around with your arms for a workout. It might seem like I'm being unhelpful, but it's hard to take questions about these types of products seriously. There's a sticky for a reason, and by asking something like this, it's obvious it hasn't been read. Everyone in this forum is always looking for power racks, GHDs, IMs/PBs, kettle bells, and so on and so forth, not this kind of stuff.

    OP, do you really think anyone has ever built muscle with a product like that? Would you ask Ronnie Coleman, Jay Cutler, etc., if they got big using a Bullworker? When you walk into a commercial gym, do you see a whole wall arrayed with bullworkers? Look in the stickies with the pictures of gyms. What do you see? Free weights. Power racks. Iron. Steel. What don't you see? Silly plastic products that you can get with 3 easy payments of $19.99.

    I completely agree, but a Bullworker shouldn't be the source of one's isometric training. There's much better pieces out there.

    never seen (well yeah I have) such a whiner about something but yet can't or won't give reasons why, just bash bash bash. Explain why it is crap (3am TV show is not a reason) and give alternative products that are better. Easy right?

    And just in case you need to know, this section is the workout equipment section. Part of that sticky is subjective statements by the author so.... The guy asked a simple question and still an not gotten an answer. OP, research and move past this thread since you may not get what you are looking for.

    LOL, and I've never seen anyone get so defensive about some fairly harmless hate toward an informercial product!! Do you secretly own one of these things dude?

    I don't know anything about the bullworker other than its been around since the 60's or 70's. Amazingly enough, I've heard several respected members around here say its not all bad. I wouldn't get one, because its always seemed gimmicky to me (but whatever) and I think bands would be better.

    Oh, and I'm also of the opinion that if its sold via infomercial at 3am.......you should probably pass.

    A VERY LONG TIME AGO I got my older brother to buy one...
    It CAN and DOES work, but just like any exercise, it will only go so far...

    Isometric exercises do not provide maximal stimulation but it CAN improve overall strength...
    FWIW, if I recall correctly, back THEN they wanted like 50$ for it... so the price is reasonable... but the IGE may be more versatile overall...


    my 2 cents.

    Iron Gym Extreme $39.99
    ISO7X $29.99

    You can pay $39.99 for the Iron Gym or get both for $10 more. So, the real question here is, "Is the ISO7X thing worth $10?". I'd say why not get it. Pay the extra $10 and play with it. If it's junk, put it on Craigslist and get your $10 back.

    Iso 7x

    Hi

    I`m a new german member of this forum. I found it while I`m searching for "Bullworker".
    The Iso 7x ist most the same.
    So I found this thread. The Bullworker and the Iso 7x are very good products. O.K. the Bullworker X5 is way better.
    I`m now 40 years old and start training with the Bullworker since 1983. I although trained with free weights, but I can say that the bullworker is no junk. When I start training at 1983 there weren`t bodybuilding studios. If one was going to have muscles he had to do bwe`s. I did that with good results. At christmas my parents gave a bullworker to me and I trained with it for a couple of month.
    I trainded with the Bullworker for Years and I still use it today.
    Since about 20 years I train with free weights in combination with Bullworker.
    The Bullworker is a very good Kind of equipment.
    In most of the forums I read that bullworker is nonsense and that you won`t get muscles by training with that machine. Who has the experience to talk like that? Remember the old Strongmen! They didn`t train in Studios, but they were incredibly strong. Their physique was great and they didn`t know free weights.
    In don`t know many people who has trained with Bullworker for a longer time. But the few that I know had great results. Please don`t say that Bullworker is junk if you never used it.

    I nearly have all of the Bullworker Models, and I even have the Iso 7x. The Iso 7x is a good training devise, but the Bullworker x5 stays head and shoulders above it.

    The Bullworker is great and you can get a lot of muscles and strenght by using ist!

    Since you went to the trouble of bumping a 6 month old thread to post your testimonial, how about you post a pic of yourself and show everyone just how effective the bullworker really is? After all, this is a bodybuilding site, and people here expect proof of such claims.

    Isometrics from the Bullworker is a good supplement to your training. I have one and use it every now and then. It is good to mix things up sometimes and I like mine. It will give you a good "isometric" workout. But use it only as a supplement to the iron and steel. Go for it.

    I have one,you cant really do tricep workouts with it,I like it for my chest,and shoulders though. Im to tall for the lower back workouts. I stopped using it though just because I hate isometrics,and I didnt see ANY gains,I was a little stronger but thats about it.

    Bullworker, the rest are fakes.

    The product is much maligned. It was and still is a very effective fitness device. While the emphasis was always isometric... the Iso-Motion (Dynamic Tension) aspect is very effective. Furthermore, if one will apply "super-sets" to their use, they will be amazed at the increase in "strength" they will achieve. As for bulk increase... no. The Bullworker Arnold Challenge gave an exercise only power lifters who could bench 400 lbs could achieve. The new Classic has over 200 lbs of end resistance. The Steel-Bow can perform 100 lb resistance curls. No, it is not nor will it ever be free weights, but it is very effective when it is used properly. The Iso7x is a knock-off and there are plenty around trying to cash in on the Bullworker name. Side by side, it is obvious why they want to be like Bullworker... and are not.

I also have the power twisters by York and Weider, a spring with handlebars and you bend it into a U shape. I've never trained seriously with them to find out how effective they are but like having them in my home gym.

    I bought a bullworker way back in 1991 just after I had finished high school. Cost me a handsome sum of $80. The instruction book that came with it was 80 pages with only a couple of pages on diet. Amazingly I did make some small size gains with it, probably because of all the teenage hormones bouncing around in me. When I start university I shelved the bullworker. I did have a go at it again the following summer but only made strength gains, which was very frustrating.

    One thing I do regret was not taking advantage of those teenage hormones earlier with weights. I bought into the myth that weights would stunt my height growth and I ended up being a very late starter in the gym.

    On a side note, I found out recently that Bruce Lee used a bullworker along with many other pieces of equipment including weights.

    ISO 7X To Build Muscle

    I purchased one back in 2010, and I used it to get back into shape. The good thing about it is that you can work to build lean muscle without harming the joints. I lived in Maryland at the time and that winter was the worst that they'd had in many years, so going out in all that snow was not practical at best and impossible most of the time. You can use an ISO 7x everyday and just add reps to your workout as your body's condition improves. You can even improvise exercises to build lean muscles in hard to develop areas like the inside thigh muscles.

    Cool About the ISO7X...

    Originally Posted by Unbreakable09 View Post

It's right at the level of "The Blade," the thing you wiggle around with your arms for a workout. It might seem like I'm being unhelpful, but it's hard to take questions about these types of products seriously. There's a sticky for a reason, and by asking something like this, it's obvious it hasn't been read. Everyone in this forum is always looking for power racks, GHDs, IMs/PBs, kettle bells, and so on and so forth, not this kind of stuff.

    OP, do you really think anyone has ever built muscle with a product like that? Would you ask Ronnie Coleman, Jay Cutler, etc., if they got big using a Bullworker? When you walk into a commercial gym, do you see a whole wall arrayed with bullworkers? Look in the stickies with the pictures of gyms. What do you see? Free weights. Power racks. Iron. Steel. What don't you see? Silly plastic products that you can get with 3 easy payments of $19.99.

    Although this was posted over a year ago, I feel somewhat obligated to intercede. The Bullworker and the ISO7X are two completely different gadgets. The Bullworker, which I bought in the 70's and made the mistake of letting go in the 90's (my wife had a garage sale), is a bona fide isometrics tools. I had great results, just by following the exercises as prescribed.
    Now, as to the other one, the ISO7X, it's just a poor imitation. I purchased one from Woot.com for $5 and $5 shipping. It is nothing that even compares with the Bullworker. It only looks similar, and once you used the original, there is no way you can even look at the ISO7X (mine is hiding in the hallway closet). My fault, I was sold on the cheap price, shame on me. Now, isometrics is a great way of getting strength, I am actually old enough to have exercised with the Charles Atlas system, which basically pushed or pulled muscles against each other. And the Bullworker works on the same principle, except that you help yourself with springs and pulleys. And it's still cheaper than a club membership!
