Let's take a look at this new one to see if it's any better than before or if it's even any better than cheaper alternatives

This version of the bowflex has been improved over earlier versions.

For example:

  • You can adjust the lat pull-down tower to different positions

  • It has a longer squat rack or frame that provides up to 4 different adjustable positions

  • You can change the exercises you're doing a lot quicker and easier than you were previously able to.

  • There are no cable changes that are needed to be done between your exercises

With the bowflex xtreme 2 you are able to perform over 75 different exercises, which is a lot than almost every other type of home gyms out there.

Additional Bowflex Xtreme 2 Benefits

  • As mentioned above, with the bowflex xtreme 2 you can actually perform over 75 different resistance exercises. Your ability to be able to properly and completely work all your muscle groups and individual muscles can't be overstated.
  • The bowflex xtreme 2 comes with 210 pounds but is upgradeable to 310 or 410 pounds. For a lot of the exercises 210 pounds will do, but for the leg, back and even some chest exercises you may find that it's not nearly enough. 210 pounds may sound like a lot of weight but when it's on a machine (and not free weights) it's actually not much.

  • The lat tower on it has 2 adjustable positions and comes with an angled lat bar; which makes pull-downs easier on the wrists.

  • The updated bowflex xtreme 2 is equipped with lower pulleys that are adjustable to 4 different positions. It's in this section of the bowflex xtreme 2 where you would do your squats and other exercises to build your glutes, hamstrings and quads. This is where you'll really need the upgrade of heavier weight as mentioned above

The one area that the bowflex xtreme 2 is poor would be the squat set-up. The only way to properly work your legs is with free weights.

The leg extension attachment is just like one you'd find in any gym. Leg extensions are useful but secondary to other leg exercises such as squats, lunges, etc. as far as effectiveness goes.

  • One good advantage the bowflex xtreme 2 has over a lot of it's competition is the fact that you don't have to waste time changing cables between your exercises and different exercise stations.

  • The quick-release, cushioned seat is adjustable and comfortable.

  • The contoured, extra wide seat back for doing lat pull-down exercises adds extra stability and support.

  • The over-all construction of is fairly good and is reinforced in the base and throughout the whole set-up for good stability.

  • The over-all size is relatively small, so it will fit in most smaller more confined spaces.

  • The warranty is really good with it. It's a 7-year limited warranty on materials and workmanship. That's as good as commercial equipment in a gym.

  • It is relatively easy to assemble. You may find that a second set of hands can help a great deal. Everything comes in numbered boxes with all of the different pieces properly marked to make them much easier to identify when putting together. It will take you a couple of hours to put together.

Over-all the bowflex xtreme 2 is a good piece of exercise equipment. As long as you use it properly and consistently you'll be able to reach most of your fitness and anti aging goals.
