A Professional Bowflex Workout Guide
This isn’t a Bowflex manual by any means, this is a complete workout guide on how to transform your body. All photos in the book are accompanied by a Bowflex machine, but really the plan included can be used on any kind of home gym.
This workout guide will give you a great exercise plan which you can easily follow with your Bowflex home gym, the perfect diet which is based upon calories consumed, great advice on super-hydration, and full scientific explanations behind each of the unique concepts.
About a third of the book is dedicated to exercises, while the rest covers the history of the Bowflex, the importance on understanding the science behind muscle and fat, and other theory about losing weight and building muscle.
You can find this book used on Half for about $14.00 – a great deal and worthwhile investment.
Read what people are saying about this Bowflex PR 1000 workout guide:
The book came and my first reaction was… this guy is nuts. I read most of the book thinking it would just get placed on the book shelf with all the other diet books I’ve collected over the years.
My second reaction was… this is different than all those other books (including the manual) and all those other books aren’t working so what do I have to lose but some flab? I’m on my second week following the plan in this book and I’ve lost around 8 pounds and I can see my arms are toning up.
This is an excellent book! By following the workout routines I lost 14 lbs and gained 5 1/2 lbs of muscle in 6 weeks. I did NOT strictly follow the diet guidelines, but if I did I would probably have doubled my fat loss. In fact, I pigged out on meals and desserts for about five days during Thanksgiving (within the 6 week period).
Dr. Darden’s principals as explained in this book have turned me into a lifetime fan. I love working out on the bowflex trainer M5 Max and have stuck with it for 10 weeks now and have no plans on stopping. I highly recommed this book.
As a woman who owns a Bowflex Machine, I was pleased to see this book on how to use Bowflex effeciently and productively. And I wasn’t disappointed.
Chapter 22, “Hips and Thighs:Tackling the Tough Spots”, is exactly what I’ve been looking for to address my problem areas. Chapter 11 on “Muscle”, and Chapter 12 on “Fat”, are clearly written and helped me understand the science behind my own body’s composition. Chapter 26, “Those Last 5 Pounds: 30 Tips on How to Lose Them” effectively summarizes Elllington Darden’s philosophy. I appreciate the balanced presentation for women and men,in both text and pictures.
I recommend this book for any woman who has a Bowflex Machine, or any woman who ever considered using Bowflex.The numerous before-and-after photographs will help you to realistically “picture the possibilities” of what you can expect from Bowflex training and proper eating.
