Even though the bowflex elite doesn’t offer the same advantages as free weights it will allow for some resistance to your smaller assistor and stabilizer muscles that a normal home gym or weight lifting machine won't.

The bowflex elite is well designed, as most bowflex models are and it's easy to change from one exercise to another fairly quick. It's comfortable to use but the resistance isn't as smooth as you would expect.

As you start to perform an exercise it starts out with little resistance and then gets tougher the more the rods bend. This isn't exactly what you want because you need proper resistance throughout the entire motion and range of each rep of an exercise.

Issues With The Bowflex Elite

You may find that the leg attachment does not offer enough resistance. Other down-side of most bowflex units is that although you can fold the bench up for storage, it's not an easy task.

If you are serious about using any bowflex exercise equipment it would be suggested that you set aside some space for it to be permanently set-up and not worry about folding it away. It does fold up, but it's very heavy and awkward to do.

Also leaving it set up completely will also ensure you use it more. Bowflex exercise equipment is supposed to be portable, but it's not easy to roll around or move especially on carpet.

All bowflex models, including the elite are highly marketed and well-known but that doesn't mean they are your best option for exercising at home.

There are many fitness, weight loss, etc. alternatives to the bowflex elite that are a fraction of the cost, take up less space, are build more solid but work just as good.

People see the many benefits and features the various bowflex models provide, as noted in our extensive Bowflex Reviews and for this reason it's become very popular, even if it isn't your best choice for home weight lifting equipment.

There are many advantages to the bowflex including the fact that it is fairly safe, you can perform a lot of different exercises with one machine, it allows for a decent range of motion (with most exercises) and it doesn't take up much room.

The bowflex elite is somewhat expensive and still won't give you the same workout as free weights and some other types of home gyms. It can however, help you a great deal if you have some space and do exercise at home.
