The Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells are a wonderful innovation for home gymnastics, which just bumps with free weights. Dumbbells are the best instrument for muscle building, even better than a straight rod and much better than a resistance machine. Manufacturers of the original power Rod technology and the new Bowflex Revolution have used their creativity in the free arena to create a very smart idea for Bowflex SelectTech.
When it comes to strength training, serious physical enthusiasts know that there are no free weights. Force training machines are often more prone to isolation, while the movement is limited during full use of mechanical support. Although this may lead to great profits at the outset, after a while, a plateau is reached which alternates the development of doctors with free weights.
Free weights also have some disadvantages. The only real way to do this is to work cautiously and slowly with the big weights, always the right shape and use a spotting partner if possible.
The second major disadvantage of free weights is the need for a large number of weights and a reasonable amount of space to hold them. Here comes the new Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells. These dumbbells have the classic dumbbell shape, two weights on both sides of a loop. The big difference is that instead of removing and replacing the weight plates, turn the screw collar each time or choose from a huge range of halter pairs that SelectTech halters use a rotary switch to adjust the weight when the right amount of weight , is attached to the handle and what you have not used remains back.
What this means is that instead of huge halter holders, usually at least 10 pairs, you just have some lugs and various weight plates. However, unlike standard weight plates, the SelectTech is perfect on a scale and without the need for a chain, each weight can be changed in a twist.The circuits are a combination of aerobic and anaerobic exercises, so the heart rate is increased at the same time the muscle is worked. In general, the circuit training requires that the jumps are not set in the middle without pause and unless you have a professional dumb rack that is almost impossible with a standard adjustable dumbbell. The Bowflex SelectTech makes it easy to use.
With the Bowflex dumbbell dial you can switch from 5 to 52.5 pounds at a time. All you have to do is to put the dumbbell back on the drawer, adjust the disc to the correct weight and lift it. Like most Bowflex devices, the SelectTech dumbbells are expensive. It is not often that a really useful innovation is created for the home gym market. Bowflex has consistently identified a number of obstacles to work at home and has found smart ways to tackle them. SelectTech dumbbells are designed to solve two of the problems with the use of free weights at home - the need for much space and the need for speed in weight change - and it is admirably achieved.
