How to Work Up to 14 Minutes on Your BowFlex Max Trainer
So you finally have your new BowFlex Max Trainer — Congrats! There is no better investment than an investment in your health. The Max Trainer is a truly unique machine and workout so before you get started, here are a few quick things you should know:
If you are just starting a fitness program, or returning to one after a long time off, chances are you might not be able to do 14 minutes on it right away. That's okay! One of the primary reasons the BowFlex Max Trainer is so effective is that it is challenging and it is different, so you need time to get used to it.
Begin by simply turning it on and experiencing the unique motion the Max Trainer provides. Change your hand positions around on the handles: Place them high, in the middle, low, and on the stationary grips in the center of the Max Trainer.
Realize that your first session might just be a few minutes. Once again, that's completely normal. You need to build up slowly on the Max Trainer — The reason you can torch so many calories in just 14 minutes is that it is a challenging workout. Your focus should be on using the Max Trainer consistently, not the overall length of the sessions.
So give yourself time to build up to 14 minutes. It may take several weeks. Realize that every session counts, even just a few minutes. Every workout will make you a little stronger, get you a little closer to your goal and, before you know it, you'll be doing the full 14-minute BowFlex Max Trainer workout!
