    I told you guys i would post the pics earlier but I got a little bit lazy...I took these pics while at the harborfest in boston MA. i was talking about getting a bowflex and by luck of draw, there was a little set up of a new one on display.

    i put them up on picturetrail because the pic files were too big for the server. i put some captions and stuff trying to explain the pics.

    they're simply pictures of the new bowflex that I saw at a fourth of july celebration in Boston. as this is the fitness and nutrition forum, i am sure some people will benefit from these pictures. Forums only function when people contribute useful information and comments like nobody cares only negatively impact the forum, creating an atmosphere where others might be timid to post later. just my two cents.

    It still looks huge. and will probably cost like $2000. You can get a set of Hammers instead.

    i dont get how the resistance gets translated to various things. it looks like its rotational resistance, ie that metal bar rotates? how does that work?

    bands/cables attached to reels. sort of the same idea as the old nordic flex. but the NF did not provide eccentric resistence which is a problem with machines.

    Not my cup of tea, but interesting nonetheless. Torsional resistance is an interesting twist (no pun intended).

    Actually I didn't even realize it until I typed it, but I left it instead of rewording it, so it was partially intentional.
