Product Features of Bowflex Workout Bench Series 5.1
The 5.1 isn’t your average workout bench, and is loaded with some pretty respectable features. With the 5.1 you will have the ability to turn any space into your very own weightlifting and training center. The dimensions for the bench are pretty typical at 56″ L x 26″ W x 20″ H (142.25 L x 66 W x 51 H cm), but there is a twist…
The Bowflex Workout Bench Series 5.1 has the capability of adjusting to six different positions, which allows for an almost unlimited range of versatility. The six positions allow you to perform exercises on a 17° decline, flat, 30° incline, 45° incline, 60° incline and even a 90° incline! As you will see in the exercises section, there are countless exercises you can perform with the 5.1 because of its unparalleled versatility. Because of the versatility with this popular Bowflex workout bench, you will be able to perform at least 30 different exercises which will target all primary muscle groups.

Cons of Bowflex PR1000 Home Gym
Use lighter resistance, so it’s not really designed for people who are interested in bodybuilding.
Compared to the other Bowflex Dumbbell home gyms, it is one of the most basic ones. But it also the cheapest and great for beginners
Overall, the Bowflex PR 1000 home gym is a great value for people just starting out with bowflex dumbbell technology. I recommend purchasing this model before purchasing the more expensive ones, just to get a feel for how these Bowflex dumbbell home gyms-operate.
