Question about Bowflex Selecttech 5.1 Adjustable Dumbbell Bench

1 Answer

Wrong seat pad with 5.1 bench

We ordered the Bowflex 5.1 bench from Sports Authority. When it arrived, my wife and I tried to assemble it. we are both mechanical engineers, home DIYers, motorbike mechanics, etc.... we know what we're doing. I'm sure the order was drop shipped from Boxflex. the seat pad was a different color, different material with different colored stitching. The mounting holes do not match and we could not finish assembly or use our new bench. We did some research on the Bowflex website and it appears the seat pad is for their Revolution XP home gym. Now we're on the phone with Sports Authority and Bowflex to resolve the issue. Last thing we want.... ship the unit back. It's about 70 lbs. ALL WE NEED IS THE RIGHT SEAT PAD....

They (Bowflex) should replace the seat with the proper seat. Sometimes a picture can go a long ways. That provided they should ship out the correct seat.

I just got a bowflex extreme 2 from someone used. It is from 2006. There doesn't seem to be enough resistance? How can I make more tension in the rods? Seems too loose?


The nice thing about the Xtreme 2 is the fact that you do not need to change cables for different exercises, but it does mean numerous cable position adjustments depending on the exercise you are doing.
To alleviate the slack problem in the cables you can either have the cables that run under the seat remain attached to the leg extension attachment or move the sliders attached to those cables as far forward as possible thereby pulling the cables as far out as they can go. This will both increase the resistance provided by the rods and keep the floating pulleys from hitting the lat pulley housing.
