What are the main features of Bowflex Blaze home gym?
Perform over 60 types of exercise
This machine is of over 60 strength-training exercises for you to do. In addition, it also has many exercise options suitable for each muscle group of your body. With this feature, your muscles will be ensured to remain challenged for continuous growth.
The Blaze offers a wide variety of options; therefore, you don’t have to worry about the growth stop of any muscle point on your body (that is the case when your muscles lack exercise variety).I have listed some of the exercise options to help you clearly understand about this and show the flexibility of the Blaze:
In fact, most models on the current market do not support enough effective workouts for your leg. Nonetheless, the Blaze can do this well. It offers a wide variety of effective leg training exercises due to its pulley system at a low level, squat traps/bar as well as the press belt for your leg.Furthermore, the curl attachment and leg extension allow increasing the level of workouts for your leg. With this feature, you can completely train your quads, hamstrings and glutes.
As mentioned above about Bowflex’s technology of resistance rob, I want to share you my own experiences gained from using Bowflex Blaze. This will surely help you have a deep understanding about how it works and its great benefits provided by this kind of resistance.
Unlike other popular home gyms, Bowflex uses a resistance rod system instead of traditional material-weight plates made of iron. Basically, those rods are composite poles which is flexible. Its purpose is to simulate traditional weight feeling. Moreover, these poles are in a wide range of thickness sizes which is suitable for different user weight.
The rods are made of composite material which is used for creating carbon fiber; therefore, it is really durable and strong - the needed features for usual weight setup. However, its form is more compact as well as lightweight.In addition, with these rods, the resistance can be upgraded to 320lbs or 410lbs. You can’t actually find this feature on the previous home gyms- PR1000 and PR3000.
The lat bar
The power of angled lat bar will help you strengthen your back muscles and shoulders well. Its design following ergonomics allows you to do exercises on your back naturally. That can minimize the back injuries. Especially, this function also helps you with your triceps.
The Blaze doesn’t take up too much your room space. It is only about 38 inches of width-wise. You can easily recognize this because it is only twice smaller than PR1000 , PR3000 and Xtreme (which range from 78 to 80 inches).Probably, when you first purchase one, you might think there’s no need for the width which is advertised. However, you will soon realize how important it is when the rod begins scratching your wall. The Blaze is actually a perfect home gym for your department width due to its narrow design.
Who should consider buying it?
This home gym machine will be very perfect for people not having enough time to visit a gym but want to strengthen their body fully. It also great for anyone who can’t afford to buy gym equipment.It’s also really convenient for you because of its small size compared to any other home gyms. Moreover, it isn’t equipped with any free weights so you needn’t worry to be hurt. Although it seems to be more expensive than any other home gyms, it offers you a wider range of exercise options compared to other products.
Who shouldn’t buy it?
The Blaze product is a machine that can help you keep fit and strengthen your muscle well. However, it is not a perfect choice for those wanting to gain massive muscle seriously. That’s not wrong. It is only designed for the general purpose of keeping the body in good shape.It builds muscle, builds strength and cut fat. On the whole, it will help to improve your health as well as your body. Nonetheless, it doesn’t tend to make you become a second Arnold Schwarzenegger.
In spite of that, it’s not the matter of this Blaze product. The real matter is you. You should define what your purpose is before purchasing one. That is also the thing many people ignore when decide to buy anything.
Carefully wonder yourself what your real goal is. If it is to gain massive muscle seriously, you should do with free weights. Otherwise, if you are finding any home gyms to purely keep fit at home, build some muscle and strength or just want to cut fat, the Blaze will be your great choice.I have ever read a story of a guy losing off more than 60lbs only by using the Blaze every together with a proper diet.
