I love switching it up. Recently, my boyfriend and I decided to change up our weight routine. We had been using free weights, in a routine that I described in an earlier post. We switched to a Bowflex routine, and I am incredibly happy with it. A lot of people say that free-weights are better than machines, because you can work more muscles in a single movement, but I like that the Bowflex allows me to hit each individual muscle in multiple ways. In the book that came with the Bowflex I have (which is a rather old model) there is a body building routine that I am very content with. The first day you work your chest and shoulders, the second is back and arms, and the third is legs and trunk. Then you take a day off and start all over again. I have been feeling the results already, and we've only done the circuit twice! I'm looking forward to seeing a change in myself - hopefully just in time for bikini season!
