Bowflex and Punching bag

Post by ChrisBON » Fri Nov 13, 2020 10:52 am

I have saved enough money for a punching bag and gloves, and soon will get a bowflex.

I am using the elliptical  for a light cardio workout and hope to have a good rhythm this winter.

It's amazing that these machines (Bowflex) once sold for over $3000 and you can now get a used one (usually barely used) for about $300.

I have been losing weight due to fasting and and cardio - so i guess i want to build up some muscle, to avoid that skinny tired look. :)

NMN since June, 2019 (started at 250mg, 500mg as of Oct 1st)
NAD+ nasal spray since July, 2019
Resveratrol since Sept 2019
Astaxanthin 10mg since October 20th
Blueberry concentrate 500 mg since October 20th
Berberine 250 mg since October 20th

I was one of those who bought a bowflex when they first came out, and as it was financed, i bought a few extras like the ab worker and the extra weight.

The price was ridiculous... but i had it for about 2 years before deciding to sell it for a move.. 
at least i got $800!!!!!

I am glad i had it though.. i used it quite regularly and got myself in pretty good shape. I had a loft at the time with a treadmill and a kick-bag... But the cool thing with the bowflex is that you could use it while listening to music or tv it was very quiet.

Also far saver for your muscles, you are much less likely to injure your self.

Nothing better than cardio on the treadmill and elliptical for the lower body and belly... and then the punching/kicking bag for upper body and legs... so a full body cardio.

Not to mention a great way to reduce stress.

I think everyone should have some workout equipment at home. Its looking like we might have another shutdown happening around or after Thanksgiving. I have found quite a bit on Market place FB for used workout equipment. :)

The funny thing is, most people I know are gaining weight, they may have had gym memberships and somehow it doesn't translate to working out at home.

I am seeing a LOT of people getting fatter while i am getting pretty fit.

Alll these athletic exercises. We sound like a bunch of 20 somethings... when we are more like 40 and 50 somethings.

That is the whole point, I guess. :)
