"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

I explained earlier in another thread why I'm selling it but I'll repeat it for you because I love you so dearly. The dip handles are way to wide for my structure. The gearing on it is such that on just about any exercise short of squats or calf raises, which I don't do, I can only use one plate.The chin part works no better for me than my chin bar hanging from the ceiling.

It's just built for a much bigger fellow. Probably made more for a big muscular testosterone laden brute like yourself.

The dip handles are too wide for 99% of the population. I am going to modify mine to make them about 4" narrower but am still debating on the best way to do it. Suggestions would be welcome (not to derail the FOR SALE thread)

Personally, any Dip handles that are NOT much wider than my shoulders. That is, when I dip, I like my hands to be closer to in line with my shoulders. That is so that my elbows stay more parallel than going out to the sides when in the stretch position.

ok, but so what if those handles are an inch or two outside? you wount find another device where negatives can be done with such "ease". and not to mention all the other creative stuff that can be done with this machine. i think it foolish to part with it..because the dip handles aren't just perfect.

Once I'm outside of that zone, it reeks havock on my shoulder joints and puts was too much strain on me. I think it places the RC in a vulnerable position at that outer angle and my shoulders simply can't take it. I've always felt this way, even 25 years ago.

Ask any male gymnast:
the correct width for parallel bars is a cubit. There are very few(if any)people where this is 24"

Oh I think Southbeach's physique can easily top either one of those guys. I'm thinking Oliva?

I saw Zane in person a few weeks after the 1980 Olympia. He looked much larger in person than in photos standing next to the monsters. He appeared to be chiseled out of granite and his muscles had muscles. His arm was at least 18". I've never seen anyone that looked like he did. It was amazing.

There is no way someone eating grass and leaves could look like that....

My buddy and I built up a lot of strength in the negative chin on this machine. We ramped up very quickly if I recall correctly..i believe we did 4-5 secs down. Right back up and no restb/w reps. 8-12 reps

It's easy to "cheat" by taking a bit too long climbing back up to top, and easy to rationalize that we need that time to get into place for next rep.

We did none of that. Right back up, and another rep started. Don't get me wrong it was hard but I recall that we were amazed at how quickly we could add weight.

I also have one for sale (original blue paint, some surface rust, otherwise in good condition). PM me for an email address. I do not visit this forum regularly and will not see or reply to comments here.

EDIT:

I should have mentioned I'm near Orlando, FL. Will also deliver and locally for additional cost depending on distance and whether it needs to be disassembled, moved up stairs, etc.

They want the money more than they want the Nautilus Machine. It is called "Capitalism".

That machine is one of the best ever conceived. If you need money sell your mother...and send her C.O.D.

I've stated at least three times on different threads that the machine is geared such that a fellow like me can only use one plate on most positive exercises and the dip bars are far to wide for my structure. I found I never used it so I can put the space it occupies to better use.

I do think the machine is better suited to a much larger individual than myself.I'm 5'8" at 180 pounds normally. Right now thanks to the chemo I'm down to 155 at times.Far to low for my liking.

If you're a big guy like Dick Butkus then you may be right.If I had extra room I'd never sell it just because it's a Nautilus but space in my tiny gym rules sometimes over sentimentality.
