I'm 6'0 150 pounds I'm trying to bulk up and gain muscle, unfortunately all I have in my possesion are two measly 20 pound dumb bells and my dad's bowflex machine that's been laying around the basement. The machine to me is weird, it doesn't give me the same aggressive satisfaction that pumping iron does. One guy told me that the machine was pretty legit and useful. Compared to me he was fairly buff at the same height as me but at 180 pounds, same mesomorph bone structure and everything.
I don't have a membership to a gym and I don't really think there's one nearby here (except the YMCA) and I really don't like the idea of taking time to travel to a gym and back. Hopefully I can save up some cash to buy a real weight set and some leg machines (probably gonna be a while).
Overall though what do you guys think of the bowflex and is it possible to make any gains with this machine?
Also are there some cheap ways for working out the legs on my own without going to a gym?
