The Bowflex Sport home gym is a versatile machine that covers virtually every muscle group of the body. Because you’re not working with free weights you don’t need to worry about injuring yourself or having a spotter with you. The power rods make it easy to adjust your weight resistance, but without the danger of a stack of heavy weights.
The Bowflex Sport home gym does take up quite a bit of room; the footprint of it is larger than what most people expect. Not only do you need room for the rod tower, bench, and leg extension, not to mention the room the rods need when they bend while you’re using it. You definitely need the room for this machine, but if you can set aside a room or area of the basement, you’re going to get a workout with the Bowflex Sport home gym that rivals what you’ll get at any gym.
You can get a total body workout in about 20 minutes with the Bowflex Sport home gym if you use it right. It offers 50 different exercises and up to 210 pounds of power rod resistance. You can build your back and shoulders with the lat tower, your glutes, hamstrings, and quads with the lower pulley/squat station, and all the muscles of your legs with the included leg extension/curl station. There’s virtually no part of your body that can’t be worked with the Bowflex Sport home gym.
The power rod technology of the mantap168 Bowflex Sport home gym is actually preferred by many fitness enthusiasts as opposed to free weights or stacks. They are smoother and easier to use, something that’s important for protection from injury. When you’re working out and your equipment is smoother this also means that you’re working your muscles much more efficiently, getting a better workout overall.
The power rods are connected to a pulley system with cables. As you pull on the workout bars or handles the power rods flex. It feels slightly different that lifting free weights but it will give you the same results. You would think that the rods would break after repeatedly flexing them but I have never heard of it happening. Bowflex is so sure of there patented power rods that the company offers a No Time Limit warranty for the rods and if they should ever wear out they will replace them for free.
Another beautiful feature of using the Bowflex Sport home gym is that you don’t need to worry about the weather, long lines, or a lack of privacy when you want to work out. If it’s pouring rain or snowing outside, you don’t need to worry about getting to the gym. You also can switch quickly and easily between workout routines without letting others in line get to the machine, and without worrying about others looking at you while you work out. So for anyone looking to get back into shape or to improve their exercise routine, the Bowflex Sport home gym should be at the top of one’s list.
