If you’re shopping for a Bowflex Home Gym, you probably want to know which Bowflex exercises and workouts will build muscle…and build it fast. As someone who has worked on a Bowflex since college (I’m almost 20 now), I’ve tried virtually anything you can think of and even made up a few. So if you’re working out in a Bowflex or planning to, here are some muscle blasting exercises that will give you amazing results!
Bowflex Exercises – Compound Workouts: Compound exercises to increase the size and general development of the body. They work by stressing your body through multiple muscles and joints at once.
The benefits of compound exercise include:
o Develop size and total mass.
o Improve core strength and appearance
o Lift more weight and deliver more explosive power
Compound Bowflex Exercises To Kick Butt:
o Chest – bench press, incline press
o Back – back rows, pull downs
o Thighs: squats, leg presses
o Shoulders: shoulder press, upright row
o Calves – standing calf raises
o Biceps – biceps curl
o Triceps – triceps extensions
o Abs – abs, obliques
Bowflex Exercises – Isolation Workouts: Isolation exercises are very effective at developing individual muscle groups and achieving separation and definition. They work by stressing individual muscles at a time.
Kick Butt Bowflex Isolation Exercises:
o Chest – chest flies, sweaters
o Back – pullovers, reverse fly
o Thighs: leg extensions, leg curls
o Calves – single calf raises
o Biceps – Single Bicep Curl
o Triceps: individual triceps extensions, kickbacks
Sit-ups: sit-ups, twist crunches
The concept of compound and isolation exercises is simple but the results are profound!
With a Bowflex you get the best of both worlds with up to 100 exercises to work every part of the body.
