"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Being the Bowflex fan I am (and yes I like green eggs and ham ;^) I have gotten my hands on an original Bowflex 2000X (Circa 1986). I am presently looking for any and all info I can find especially documentation that would have come with the product (use and assembly etc). I'm making contact with the original owner (it's a multi generation family hand-me-down) to get what details I can but of course any paper work is all but lost.
If anyone knows anything I would greatly appreciate being contacted. This funny little unit has a couple of tube steel add-ons with foot plates and I can't for the life of me even imagine how you might use them. They are about 3 foot poles with sort of a bend for a handgrip at one end and holes for some sort of attachment. Then at the other end of each are footplates ? possibly a "Gazelle" (Tony Little) type thing? It"s a real gem, only two pulleys and the bench sits practically flat on the floor.
As well, it has all sorts of extra rod/box attachments. Interesting to see they didn't initially realize the combination that could be used in that it has 5's - 10/20/25/30/35/40/45/50. I'll post a pic or two when I have it cleaned up a bit, it is in operational shape but very scuffed up. What I really enjoyed was it came out of the classic cluttered basement, full of discarded/unused fitness gimmicks including the obligatory "ab roller" machine.
I've seen one, funny to see how they have evolved. Cant think of what the foot plates are for, the old one I saw didn't have them but was seated on the floor. I wonder what a Bowflex machine will look like in another 10 years?
