Before You Assemble
Before You Assemble
Basic Assembly Principles
Please take the time to read all assembly instructions
before attempting to assemble your Bowflex®
Preacher Curl accessory.
Here are a few basic tips that will make your assembly of the
Bowflex ® Preacher Curl attachment quick and easy. By using
these principles, you can simplify each process and save
yourself extra time and effort.
Please note that the procedure for installing the
Preacher Curl attachment is slightly different for
a Bowflex Xtreme®, Bowflex Xtreme® 2, Bowflex
Xtreme® SE or Bowflex Xceed™ home gym. Most of
these models will require the seat to be stabilized
with the Seat Locking Pin in the Preacher Curl kit.
However, some Bowflex® home gym models are
already equipped with a Seat Locking Pin.
1. To make the assembly process go faster, gather the pieces
you need for each step and thoroughly read the assembly
instructions for that step prior to starting assembly for the
step.
2. W hen tightening a locknut on a bolt, use a combination
wrench to grip the locknut and ensure that it is fastened
securely.
3. W hen attaching two pieces, gently lift and look through the
bolt holes to help guide the bolt through the holes.
4. As a general rule, and for all bolts and nuts on your Bowflex ®
Preacher Curl attachment, turn bolts or nuts toward the right
(clockwise) to tighten and left (counterclockwise) to loosen.
Or you can remember the mnemonic: “Righty tighty, lefty
loosey.”

How to Use Your Preacher Curl
Pulley Position and Cable Routing
When using the Preacher Curl attachment, attach the cables to the squat pulley cables. The squat
pullleys are placed in the #1 position (closest to the Power Rod® unit).
Refer to the illustration below for proper cable routing.
Active pulleys are on the squat station and center cross bar.
(Bowflex Xtreme® SE model shown)
14
How to Use Your Preacher Curl
The Bowflex® Preacher Curl attachment is
specifically designed to give added support for
working the biceps. The attachment is installed at
the Leg Extension mount under the seat, and serves
to stabilize the arms to create a more effective
exercise. Before you connect the Preacher Curl
cables, unhook the cables on the home gym from the
Power Rod® unit.
Attach the snap hook on the Preacher Curl cable
assembly to the D-ring strap on the Preacher Curl
Bar. Adjust the height of the bicep curl pad as
needed for a comfortable exercise position. This
optimum position will be different for each person.
Connect the Preacher Curl cables to the pulley
cables as shown in the preceding cable routing
illustration.
Adjust the D-ring strap to the correct length for
your arms’ reach.
E-Z Curl Bar
The E-Z Curl Bar is available separately as an
accessory for your Bowflex® home gym.
The E-Z Curl Bar allows variations on the Preacher
Curl exercise by increasing the number of possible
hand/arm positions.
Unhook the preacher curl bar from the cables,
and set it safely aside. Attach the E-Z Curl Bar
chain to the cables, and place it on the hooked
bar holders above the V-pulleys. Use a length
of chain that allows a full range of motion
without bottoming out the rods.
Adjust the height of the bicep curl pad as
needed for a comfortable exercise position.
This optimum position will be different for each
person.
Safety:
• Make sure the attachment is locked in position
and that the seat has been stabilized with the seat
locking pin before sitting on it or adding weight to
the cables.
• Before using the attachment, make sure all
fasteners are in place and tightened.
• Always check fasteners, snap hooks, cables and
pulleys before each workout to ensure proper
functioning.
Consult a physician before you start an exercise
program. Stop exercising if you feel pain or
tightness in your chest, become short of breath, or
feel faint. Contact your doctor before you use the
machine again. Use the values calculated or
measured by the machine’s computer for
reference purposes only.
