      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A solid piece of exerciseable engineering.

      The bench press amongst other bench related exercises are absolutely vital to completing a full and varied work-out which targets all the right upper-body muscle groups. When compiling my collection of gym equipment I realised this, and I therefore realised I need to buy a bench. There are several alternatives from the fixed position product we have here: You can also buy models which can be lowered at one end to allow for the performance of inverted exercises; Similarly, there are benches which have split surfaces so that they can be adjusted into seated formations - for weighted (mainly dumbbell) exercises which require this; And there are also benches which have attached additional foot rests to make them more comfortable and less of a strain of the wrong areas of your body.

      This model, the 'Fit-Equip Standard Flat Bench' is a fixed bench, meaning it can't be raised, lowered or split, you just have to use it as it comes. One end of the bench is narrower than the other, and this is the area you place your head, with your body lieing flat along the surface towards the wider end. This makes the process of lifting weights safer, as your waist has more room for extra movement - more room for error essentially.

      Dimensions:
      Height (mm): 429mm
      Width (mm): 1220mm
      Length (mm): 250mm
      Weight (kg): 30

      The product can be bolted to the floor (if placed in a permanent position), though it can also be used without any fixing. The stability of the product is lesser, but due to the configuration of the legs (one spread considerably wider than the other) stability is still maintained at a safe level.

      This bench is really comfortable. The inner 'mattress' is soft, and the PVC cover offers water-resistance whilst remaining flexible to allow through the comfortable element of the design. When lifting bar weights and dumbbells the pressure on your back, bottom, neck and skull is kept to a minimum and comfort is maintained excellently during the process.

      I have had no damage issues with the product, it is a sturdy, reliable, safe piece of apparatus from a trusted brand which is suited to anyone capable of exercising in this way. I have no problems with it at all and would recommend it thoroughly.
