Click Here To Read Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym Reviews
If you spent any time using a home gym at all you know how annoying it can be to adjust pulley systems. First you have to take them off, attached employees the right way, sometimes you forget how to remove them, and it gets worse when you realize you forgot how to put them back on. It is a hassle! Ease-of-use is one of the primary reasons people use a rod weight resistance system as opposed to a weight stack system. Overall, they're much easier to assemble and use.
Now, there are literally dozens of choices when it comes to home gyms and I wouldn't want to recommend anything average. So let's see if the Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym stacks up to a rigorous home gym review. First off, one of the things I frequently read in forums on the Internet is that band resistance or in Bowflex’s case Power Rod resistance loses its resistance over time as they are bent. This is true, but I rarely see the counterpoint that weight stacks lose weight as they are banged against each other and chipped. Both types of home gyms lose resistance over time. The difference between the two is that Power Rod resistance is generally much less expensive to replace.
As for the Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym itself, it comes standard with 210 pounds of resistance. Now, that's good enough for just about every high school student I can think of, but if your student happens to be one of the monsters on campus the Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym can be easily upgraded to as much as 410 pounds of resistance. In other words, there is plenty of room to grow as the body grows with strength training.
The Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym already came with an impressive array of stations that worked out the chest, shoulders, back, arms, abdominals, and legs. However, the Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym has recently been upgraded to include enough, no crunch shoulder harness that is sure to help anyone build incredible abdominal muscles. The other add-on is an improved seat that provides greater back support. This features especially useful to someone like me who goes out of his way to reduce back injuries! If your back is broken your doctor to be doing too much of!
Honestly, if you don't believe me you can see for yourself how great the Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym is. Bowflex offers a six-week results guarantee that enables you to return the home gym within six weeks of purchase. If you like it, just call Bowflex and they'll be very happy to help you send the home gym back.
