Bowflex Revolution FAQ ...

Investing in a Bowflex Home Gym is not cheap. Below you will find answers to commonly asked questions regarding the Revolution.

Can You Really Build Muscle With A Bowflex? Yes, building muscle on a Bowflex is not a problem. The Bowflex is geared towards people who want to build lean muscle and get conditioned. It maxes out at 280lbs and offers cable resistance. The benefit is you have over 90 exercises to sculpt all your body parts. The limitation is that due to the controlled movements you can not develop your stabilizer muscles as efficiently as free weights. This may be a problem for extreme strength athletes. The solution is to use free weights in conjunction with your Bowflex. I recommend a set of dumbbells

Can You Burn Fat With A Bowflex? Yes. The secret to burning fat is really not a secret. For best results, workout 3-4x a week for a half hour. Focus on doing high repetition exercises in the range of 12-15 repetitions. Now here's the most important thing to remember ... your diet is gonna have the most influence. If you drink at least a 1/2 gallon of water a day and minimize sugars and carbs after 3 pm you will do very well on your Bowflex and lose plenty of weight.

Does the Bowflex really work 20 minutes a day 3x a week? Well, that's a bit of an exaggeration. It takes more than an hour a week of training to get into shape. I suggest at least a half hour 3-4 times a week plus some cardio thrown in.

What is the Bowflex 6 week guarantee? If you are not 100% satisfied you can return your Bowflex for a full refund of the purchase price, less shipping and handling.

Does the Bowflex work well enough to replace a gym?In fact the Bowflex, if used properly, can replace a gym membership. By purchasing a Bowflex, in addition to a quality set of free weights, the serious fitness enthusiast can enjoy a well-equipped and very effective home gym.

Does the Bowflex really work well for those recovering from injuries, or for those just learning weight training? The adjustable resistance on the Bowflex does make it a good choice for those coming back from rehab, or for those recovering from a sports injury. The resistance can be set for as little as five pounds, and the pulley system provides a smooth and stress free workout.
