  • Limited movement on Bowflex

    Sep 17, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy, great machine, a little pricey but works very well.
    Cons: Over 7' tall, goofy configuration of screws, better if 410 lbs were included

    Summary: I have been using my Bowflex for just over three months now and would like to address one issue I keep hearing and seeing. The machine is great for a home gym setup...it will make you sore if you use it correctly. As for the limited motion...I am 6' 3" ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: There are no pros
    Cons: A very expensive scam

    Summary: I had a bowflex for two years, which had a Lat Bar and Leg extension, and although it increased my strength, there is a limit to how much it can increase. The bowflex, and other machines like it, boast that you cannot wear out the rods, in this case, the ... read more

    Cons: The range of motion for some of the exercises are limited.
