Bowflex Ultimate 2 Home GymI sure didn’t like the way the Blowflex book laid these difference exercises out. I when through them and grouped them together by required setup. This workout takes 20 minutes.

Here is there intro to this workout:

“Start by performing one set of each exercise. Warm up with a light resistance exercise that you can perform easily for 5 – 10 reps without fatiguing. Focus on practicing and learning your technique before increasing the resistance.

Then move to a more challenging resistance you can perform for no less than 10 reps and no more than 15 reps without your form deteriorating. As you become stronger, you can advance to two sets for each exercise. Complete all sets of each exercise before moving on to the next.

Rest 30 to 45 seconds between sets. Move slowly on each rep. Use a pace that will allow you to stop the movement instantly at any point in the rep. Count three seconds up and three seconds down and work to fatigue during each set.”

Here is how Bowflex grouped each exercise.
