It’s time for another Home Gym Review by your favorite Home Gym Reviewer, Johnny! Today we’ll be talking about the Bowflex Ultimate 2 Home Gym. The Bowflex Ultimate 2 enables users to perform as many as 95 exercises and includes 4 main workout stations. Does the Bowflex Utlimate 2 Home Gym measure up to Bowflex’s stellar home gym reputation? Read on and find out!
First off, the Bowflex Ultimate 2 Home Gym offers about 310 lbs. worth of resistance. That’s an incredible amount of weight to work with no matter which part of your body you’re trying to work out. I personally max out at about 185 lbs. and my football playing cousin maxes out at about 210 lbs. If you’re worried that you’ll outgrow the weight resistance, don’t worry, you’ll probably never need 310 lbs. worth of resistance. In the off chance you do outgrow the weight resistance that’s included, Bowflex offers a 410 lb. weight resistance upgrade.
What can you workout with the Bowflex Ultimate 2 Home Gym? Well, I think I better question is “what won’t you be able to work out? “ If you want to sculpt your chest you can do bench presses, declines, chest flys, cable crossovers, or use an incline bench. Shoulders are in no way neglected either. All 4 stations combine to enable users to perform as many as 20 different shoulder exercises including deltoid rows, standing cable crosses, and reverse flys. Honestly, I could go on forever and ever about the exercises you could do with the Bowflex Ultimate 2 Home Gym, so I’ll just list everything you can do at the bottom of this post.
The Bowflex Ultimate 2 Home Gym comes includes a workout poster and an instructional DVD. If you’re new to strength training you’re probably going to find these two pack-ins extremely helpful in starting your first strength training routine. You’ll get expert advice from people who actually use the Bowflex Ultimate 2 Home Gym. The poster is nice to keep on a wall next to the Bowflex Ultimate 2 Home Gym to quickly reference which exercise you need to perform to target a specific muscle group.
Finally, I need to mention the warranty. The warranty for the Bowflex Ultimate 2 Home Gym makes all the difference in the world! If you order this home gym you’re going to have a home gym in working condition for at least a decade. That’s because Bowflex warrants the Bowflex Ultimate 2 Home Gym against all defects in craftsmanship for 12 years! That’s a lot of fitness! Oh, and the resistance rods are guaranteed for life. Perhaps Bowflex’s motto should be “Bowflex: Don’t you worry about a thing.”
Overall, the Bowflex Ultimate 2 Home Gym is a high quality piece of fitness equipment. The price is a little steep, but Bowflex more than justifies the price tag by including so much with this home gym. If you’re looking to bring a professional level product inside your home with all the bells and whistles you need and more, the Bowflex Ultimate 2 Home Gym is definitely the home gym for you.
