...right off the bat, if you do calf raises you'll need more than this. You'll do a lot more weight with shoulder shrugs than you think too.

Mine didn't come with instructions. You have to take the rod block off the machine so you can get to the bottom of it to put in the screws. Just pop out the two covers (I used a flat screwdriver to pry them out), insert the rods, and put a philips screw into the bottom of the block to hold the rod in (screws are included).

I'm a 42 yr old male, in good shape and experienced with working out and weight training. I lift weights to tone up, and to balance the running portion of my workouts. I'm not looking for size or "gains". My goal in purchasing a Bowflex was to save time and space. I purchased the Bowflex Extreme with the 310 "lb" resistance upgrade. To date I have not purchased the leg attachment option. I have used this machine for six weeks.
Overall - I'm happy with this purchase. This machine is a good concept, and produces good results. In my opinion, it offers several advantages over free weights. It's well constructed, but has some minor flaws (described later). While not the top-of-the-line model, this machine allows me to do more exercises than I could ever possibly need.
The resistance feels different than free weights, and takes some getting used to. First, the poundage listed on the rods does not correspond to free weights - it doesn't need to. The goal is to provide a repeatable, controlled resistance. Second, the resistance increases through the range of motion, unlike weights which require you to overcome inertia. Initially, this makes the exercise feel too easy, but I've found that if I work through the complete range of motion in a controlled manner, I get a good workout.
In my opinion, because resistance increases through the range of motion, the Bowflex works stabilizer muscles better than free weights. In addition, since you're not limited to working against gravity, you can exercise through ranges of motion not possible with free weights. Free weights do offer some advantages, but I'm happy with my results to date.
The actual size of the Extreme is pretty much what I had anticipated. It requires a 7ft wide x 9ft deep x 8ft high workout area.

There is no way these rods are 50 lbs. maybe 30 lbs. at most. Are not rubber coated like originals. They do not retain there shape like original ones. Very disappointed.

I got these about a week ago. There is no way they're of the same resistance as my current "50" rods. I liken them very much to "30s." I feel very much ripped-off. To be cliche, I'd give these a zero if possible.

I'd been watching these for awhile after I bought my Bowflex xtreme 2 SE from Bowflex. Bowflex would ship to me (I'm in Alaska) but Amazon wouldn't. For what ever reason Amazon was selling these thru the Bowflex direct and wouldn't ship the rods to me either. I noticed that Amazon was now directly selling them so I ordered and got free shipping. Anyway they arrived fast. One rod was straight and white the other was slightly curved and yellowish. Different material under the rubber, dunno. Also the grooves that lock the rods in place were cut different, one shallow the other deep. But they installed fine. Using them, they seemed lighter resistance wise, than the 50's that came with the Bowflex.

Its all good, if they should break Bowflex offers lifetime replacement so I'm not to worried.

viva la Bowflex body. Watch out Superman!!!

For most of us who exercise regularly, the Bowflex Sport is a fine exercise machine. Unfortunately though, two hundred and ten pounds of resistance is not enough. The 310 lb. upgrade is a neccessity for serious workout. I found by upgrading to 310 lbs., I can't bench press the whole machine. I would recommend for any serious lifter, when you buy the the bowflex sport to immediately upgrade to 310 lbs.

If you use your bowflex at all, it won't be long before you need these. 210 lbs seems like a lot but I think "bowflex pounds" are a bit lighter than regular pounds. :) One word of warning: I would order these at the same time you order a bowflex. Otherwise the 50lb rods included in the bowflex will be "softened up" and these will seem disproportionately strong. Get these and alternate which 50lb set you use so they both "soften" at the same rate.

I ordered this to upgrade what is supposed to be a non-upgradeable Bowflex Motivator 2. Thanks to advice from the posters here, I was able to bend back the metal bars covering the upgrade holes and add these additional rods. Before the upgrade I wasn't using my Bowflex very much since the standard 210lb resistance wasn't adequate for many chest and back exercises. With the new rods the resistance is much stronger.

The upgrade is definitely worth it. As an added bonus, the shipping was very fast.
