Kabuki Strength Transformer Bar Review...not a Coop Review

The ability to adjust the sleeve loading positions to me forward and backward and up and down could allow for some really interesting training options, sort of like having multiple bars in one.

What's the difference between Bowflex XG2 SE vs Bowflex PR1000?

So I'm pretty set on getting a Bowflex. I understand that it doesn't give you the barbell benefits for building mass. Some of these exercises are more complimentary. I get that.
