Working out again?

I spent about 3.5 hours last night putting together our new Nautilus Smith Machine. It seems like a good solid piece of equipment that will give us most of what we need. I would like to pick up some more dumbells to round out some of the exercises. The bench is perfect to pull out and use on its own with dumbells. We figured we’d cancel our Y membership (that we’re not using) and get this. I actually am very optimistic about us using it, but, as everyone knows it’s about time and discipline, two things that come at a cost. Expect a review soon.

    We looked at them. I think they’re way too expensive for what they give you.The way the market is in general right now, I think too much of a percentage of what I buy (if I buy one of the popular machines) is going towards gimmicks or bells and whistles I don’t need (I’m thinking in particular of the crossbow turned crossbar, but I know it applies to others).

    Seriously though, those are pretty nice – you’re actually pushing (pulling) plates but it’s on a track so you can’t mess up the form. I miss weightlifting…
