Alright, before i get torn to shreds by a pack of rabid free-weight junkies, allow me to set a few things straight Yes, i do realize that free weights produce better results, and am using a machine because that’s the best option currently available to me. When i move to a bigger house next year, i will look into replacing it with some traditional equipment, but for the time being, i have to make the best of what i have.
Now that we got that out of the way, i was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of some good info on Bowflex workouts? I’ve searched the archives and read the FAQ, but was unable to find anything Bowflex-specific.
I’m 19, 6’1, 210lbs with about 25% body fat. My primary goal is to lose the excess weight as quickly and efficently as possible. Upon achieving that goal, i will concentrate on shaping my body to look the way i want it to.
I am currently reading some of the articles around here, and will soon know a fair bit about nutrition. My current diet is straight from the Bowflex manual - 1500 cal/day with 60:20:20 carb:prot:fat ratio. Short of injecting myself with chemicals, there is nothing that i would be unwilling to do to achieve my goals, so i’m open to all suggestions. The equipment i have available to me is the basic Bowflex Power Pro, plus the leg attachment.
The ‘Bowflex body leanness program’ promises good results, weightloss-wise anyway, so i’m going to get started on it next week unless someone has a better idea. I despise it because it seems too easy, but it also seems to be more efficient than their other programs, information on which you will find in the training manual, a link to which is attached below.
