Why You Should Start Building Your Home Gym With A Workout Bowflex Bench
If you are thinking of building a home gym, in my opinion the first place you should start is with a weight
Bowflex Bench. With a weight Bowflex Bench and a set of barbells you won't need to worry about traveling to the gym
or paying high gym membership fees.
The exercise known as the Bowflex Bench press is practiced as you have probably guessed on a weight Bowflex

and triceps muscles.
The standard weight Bowflex Bench is about twelve inches wide, three feet long and is
suspended above the ground on legs. However the better quality ones are much more versatile. You can quickly adjust
the Bowflex Bench to different angles and heights. There is the usual flat position for routine presses. For the
incline presses you can raise it higher. And in the lower level position you can perform a decline Bowflex Bench
You can build all your upper body muscles with one of these adjustable Bowflex Benches Add a full squat rack or
rack handles and you are now able to do squats and dead-lifts for a total body workout.
If working out with weights is new to you then you should take the time to learn the basic rules, such as proper
posture and breathing techniques. These will help to develop your balance and aid you to practice the exercise

carried anywhere and can be positioned according to the space available in your home or gym.

An outstanding Bowflex Bench in this category is The Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bowflex
Bench Series 5.1. This is one of the most in demand workout Bowflex Benches on the market today. This is because it
is such a very versatile Bowflex Bench. It has no less than four incline positions, a 17 degree decline setting for
performing sit ups, as well as the normal flat position.
It also has a very inexpensive smaller brother The Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bowflex Bench Series 3.1 is
nearly as versatile but is quite a bit cheaper. Both models carry a 15 year warranty, so if you decide to go down
the weight Bowflex Bench route to fitness I can't recommend better value weight Bowflex Benches anywhere.
Bowflex Bench- The Machine And Technology
The technology behind the Bowflex® line of home gyms is designed around the Power Rod® resistance concept. The
Power Rod® technology has been patented and has been used by Bowflex® for 15 years. The Power Rods® are made from
highly technical composite and then submitted to three different flex-tests prior to being installed on any
Bowflex® machine. Bowflex® is so confident in this technology, they stand behind their no-time-limit warranty which
states that the Power Rods® can flex over and over again but cannot be worn out. If you do wear them out somehow,
it is guaranteed the rods will be replaced at no cost to you.
How does the Power Rod® work? If you want more resistance, you'll use a rod that is larger in diameter. You have
the option to use as little as 5 pounds of resistance or as much as 410 pounds of resistance with your Bowflex®
home gym. Each model is a bit different, but Power Rod® upgrades are available.
Bowflex® home gyms are made right here in the United States. Unlike many companies on the market today, Bowflex®
guarantees your complete satisfaction! If, after using the machine for six weeks, you decide it isn't making a
difference, return it to the company. You'll receive a full refund, less your shipping handling, of course. Simply
contact the Customer Service Department, obtain return authorization and return the machine within 2 weeks of the
time authorization is given.
Bowflex® machines work with a pulley and cable system. They are the exact quality used on commercial aircraft.
The cables are certified by independent labs, lubricated and then sealed with a protective nylon jacket.
All of the Bowflex® benches are molded from durable polyurethane. It is then fused to a high grade PVC covering
(like the kind used in the car industry). The covering will resist cracking, tearing and even moisture, which
ensures longer life for your machine.
The frame, or foundation, of all Bowflex® home gyms is of the highest quality, made from high grade carbon
steel. Construction like this is typically found in public gyms.
The hand grips on the Bowflex® home gyms are unique. They are actually a 5-way hand grip or handle that can be
used in the traditional manner or you can use the strap to wrap around your hand for additional support. Not only
that, the strap can be used around your ankle, foot or it can be used as a shoulder cuff. This unique design is
extremely versatile and Bowflex® has it.
All Bowflex® machines offer the hand grips, some style of bench and they all fold up for easy storage. There are
resistance upgrades available for all of the machines. Certain accessory upgrades are also available.
