do you guys think a bowflex is a waste of money?[/quote]
For the money, if you’re going to get the squat attachment, and the lat pull down attachment, you could get a lot of freeweights and a power rack instead.
Plus with the bowflex, you’re going to out grow it eventually and the resistance is going to be different throught the movements (different band tension at different points).
That could be good sometimes, but that’s what chains and bands are for when working with freeweights, and if you’re that advanced to where you’re using bands and chains with freeweights, you’re probably too strong to do any kind of low rep training on a bowflex.
Plus freeweights seem to have more variety and I personally get less bored with them than with a bowflex (I bought one and it’s in storage with the other things I don’t use).
