I agree. I dont like the Bowflex myself. Wish I had an old fashioned weight bench but Ive gotta work with what I have. I know the exercises to work out my Biceps. I know the the classic freeweight curl but I dont have freeweights so I put around 55 on a handle and then curl it 15 times with 3 reps. Im not too sure on how to work triceps because you cant do a Bench-style setyup on the Bowflex I have. I have a Bowflex XTL. Ive been trying different exercises tryin to figure out one and the only one I can think of is where I sit with my back against the pole. The Weight is on each handle. The handle sits about my calf level and behind me about 3 inches back. I pull the weight out acting sort of like a bench manuever. I dont lock my elbows and I end up basically using my upper arm to pull the weight forward. Its very hard and the veins in my arm all become instantly visible. Shoulder excercise is Pushups and to hang the bar over my head with around 80 on each side. Pull down behind my head and place it on my neck, back-military style. Im at a loss for the others.
Also I just read about the sprints. Are the lightpoles 100 feet apart total or from lightpost to lightpost? How are Combat boots for running
? I use a pair of my dad's that he got in the past from the Airforce. Doesnt hurt when I run in em but I need to get a bigger size.
