I think it's funny how every time a Bowflex thread comes up someone will say it's crap or X is better. It all comes down to what you'll use. If using the Bowflex will motivate you, then it's good. If it'll just sit there gathering dust, then it's bad. I personally went from 135 to 160 off it and have since augmented it with a weight cage, bench, and free weights. But I still use it for some of my exercises. As for it being a good deal, I picked it up for this price without the mats or extra rods, so really slick at the current offer.
The best exercise? The one you do and the one you do consistently!

Thats a bad thing..
You wont be using your stabilizer muscles correctly, the more you use this false sense of stability you will injure yourself from incorrectly strengthening your muscles. Last thing is it will make your muscle imbalances even worst off than they currently are..

Free weights- you control the motion, range of motion and the fluidity of the motion.
bowflex/smith machines anything else of this nature can cause your muscles to use other / unnatural motions to "guide" your body and cause damage. Main one I see is rotor cuffs and people in the gyms. They dont know any better though.
True or not, I add a few reps of free weights to the mix because the power bands, unless doubled, offer little resistance. They won't do much except toning.

I had a bowflex when I was a kid, its "alright" for toning, but you wont build mass at all. People who are looking to get in shape are those who want to get "toned" anyway. So bowflex, that is if they actually use it is OK.

However, I have these bad boys, http://www.powerblock.com/
If you live near a military base with a PX/Exchange you can get the powerblocks 100lb dumb bells for 500 even, I did and I dont regret them a bit. (other than fact when I have to move) these things are a pain its like, how can such a small thing, weigh so much when you are already exhausted from moving furniture... lol

If you actually want to build muscle mass/get in shape. Buy some free weights on craigslist, theres always those people who buy them new with intention of getting in shape and then puts in closet for years to come.
if you don't build mass/strength, then you're not eating properly or there is not enough resistance from the machine/workout.
which means you're already a body builder or power lifter that has outgrown the capabilities and usefulness of a bowflex.

a regular person (doesn't even have to be an out of shape person) will greatly benefit from any workout, whether it be p90x, body weight exercises, free weights, bowflex, etc. if they are disciplined and eat properly.

Actually, yeah your right. I guess I should'nt of said cannot gain muscle mass. I did mention though for an average person would be good to stay toned. The problem was for me the resistance bows/bars whatever htey are called are so tough to get a challenge from. Theres always something better, but for someone who is set on a bowflex I say go for it, everyone starts somewhere, once they outgrow their beginner gains they will move onto free weights and become addicted to it. lol. People can never get enough of it once they truly feel the results.

Save yourself some money and if you want to buy one of these pieces of junk just buy one off Craigslist, there are fields of Bowflexes on there. If you really want to do strength/weight training do yourself a favor and buy a power rack and bench.

Ohhh; you're one of those.

Well be safe. I'll workout at home.
Yep, mountain bike, road bike, cyclocross bike. If it's cycling - I'll participate. Much better than a couch workout.

If you're looking to lose weight, the easiest and fastest way is to stop eating as much.

That won't get you as healthy as cardio, but you'll lose weight, assuming that's your only concern.
Bad advice.

If all you do is diet then part of that weight loss will almost certainly be from muscle tissue as well as fat. It's better to work up a balanced diet and include at least a light workout into the plan to help maximize fat loss and minimize muscle loss.

Yes, that's true, but as I said, if all you're interested in doing is losing weight, then that will get you there fastest.

I even had a disclaimer that I was not talking about health. Did you skip over that part?
