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

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

These fit in nicely with the rest of the rods. I quickly outgrew the original 210 lb capacity on my bowflex blaze on certain exercises. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Mark Holbrook
Work as expected. Identical and same quality as the current rods.Published 12 days ago by Amazon Customer
Would be great if I wanted to use that much weight, but probably only necessary for the serious body builder who needs more than a 100 lbs of resistance for squats and the like. Read morePublished 2 months ago by nfremont
