Can you build muscle with a Bowflex Revolution? Yes, you can if your willing to train hard. There is a wide selection of Bowflex exercises that will help you build lean muscle and burn fat. I own one so this is coming from first hand experience.
The effectiveness of your results depends on your commitment and workout plan.
However, let's clear up some misconceptions about using the Bowflex Revolution. The fact is you can not get huge using one of these home gyms. They were not designed that way. You need to use free weights to target your stabilizer muscles if you want to add serious mass. Instead, it will give you the power to condition your body and build a lean physique with plenty of hard muscle. This is made possible with the nearly 100 exercises and 400 variations offered on the Bowflex Revolution. Bowflex uses Spiraflex technology to match the feel and results of using a cable machine.
The real goal is create a full body workout that gives you a balanced physique. Depending on your fitness goals there are different ways to accomplish this. If you want to just get cut than I would recommend volume training with 12-15 reps and 4 sets per exercise. Studies have shown that higher reps will lead to greater fat loss and muscle definition. If your goal is to add muscle than you'll need to lower your reps down to 8 – 12 reps. This will target your fast twitch fibers which lead to greater muscle size and density.
For most folks, it's better to stick to an exercise program that will not kill you and that you can stick with for the long term. This is how you will build and maintain your results.
