For $500 bux - get yourself an awesome set of dumbbells and even a bench and barbell from Craigslist. Much more effective for building mass and muscle.

When I started lifting 3 years ago, I was this close to buying a bowflex cuz I got pulled into the hype and commercials. I took ^this^ advice and don't regret itand wouldn't consider a bow flex ever again

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.

I cant decide on this or the dumbell deal - im looking to lose weight rather than build bulk.
I agree about the Bowflex hype, but it does have its attractiveness like compactness and versatility. For the price, worse case is you sell it on CL for same price or lose couple month's worth of gym membership. For losing weight, I think either should be fine as long as you're committed to a routine and gaining muscle and burning more calories. Don't worry about gaining bulk, it takes a lot of work to do that. I think some people fear gaining too much bulk as if it were easy to do and somehow just happens by accidentally working out too much. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

how much room do you need to effectively use this? do you need the space behind the machine to do additional exercises?

heartThumbdownLooks like a useless machine. You can't squat, dead lift, nor bench on this. These are the compound exercises you only need. Note: real squatting not that smith machine bsThumbdown

Have to agree with DBs and a flat bench (adjustable is even better) rather than this if you want to bulk up. If you want to tone, hell, still get the DBs and just run a lot.
This isn't bad, but I think the versatility of dumbbells along with the ability to get big with them is a better deal.

This machines puts a lot less strain on the body then free weights. My shoulders had always bothered me, and using free weights just hurt my shoulders so I couldn't use them. I bought this a year or so ago, and my shoulders feel better then ever.

Agreed. I bought this system, and didn't use it after about a dozen tries. Perhaps it was a personal thing. I'm 6'3" so when using this system, I would easily go beyond it's capabilities. I do still have the SelectTech Dumbbells, which are great. Much more effective workout with those.

Just my 2 cents.

Keep in mind, (i dont know for sure and im not gonna look it up because idc that much) but I think the SE / SE2 has the difference to uhm, easy pulley changes.

SE2 you dont have to do anything but grab something else and push, but on the SE I believe you have to tinker with all the BS pulleys and its annoying.

Build Bulk = McDonald's for lunch & no gym time.

I bought this machine like two years ago when it was $400. It's a pretty nice machine, it's good for building stamina, but you will not get strong. You are better off buying a weight bench or just getting a pull up bar and run. The Xtreme SE 2 has the quicker change pulley system.

I will vouch that it is a quality machine and it works very well, just don't expect to get ripped like the people in the commercial.

Not commenting about the price on this unit or whether or not this is a deal because I'm simply not familiar with the product.

However. Free weights will take you farther, and a gym membership is much cheaper, with many more machines/weights/etc available to you. Unless you live in the sticks, have a fear of being in public at a gym, or hate free weights, I'm not sure it's worth the 500 bones and real estate it takes up in your house.

If you have never used how do you know? I am just saying. You can do all three of those exercises. wave
