- is one of the highest quality, best looking and most versatile workout benches you’ll find. This a really versatile piece of equipment. It has a ton of exercise options, so it’ll definitely give you a solid workout. In particular, it allows you to do really comfortable back extensions. Back extensions are difficult to do properly without the right equipment .
- Here are some of the main exercises you can do with this workout bench and the muscles they’ll work:
- Lower back extensions
Lower back extensions (sometimes referred to as ‘hyperextensions’) are a great exercise for developing strength through your lower back. You’ll primarily be working a group of 3 muscles known collectively as the erector spinae. To a lesser extent, lower back extensions also work the glutes (butt muscles) and hamstrings. Strengthening your lower back through hyperextensions is really important for developing a strong core, and for helping to reduce the risk of back injuries when doing more strenuous exercises like squats, deadlifts, and clean & jerks.
- Sit-ups and reverse crunches
allows you to do both sit-ups and reverse crunches (bringing your legs towards your body from a straightened position), for a good abdominal workout. The bench can be adjusted to one of four different positions; 1 flat, and 3 declined positions, which will make your sit-ups and reverse crunches more or less difficult as needed. Also, for a well-rounded ab workout, you can turn yourself 90 degrees in the Roman Chair section and target your oblique abdominals.
- Dumbbell exercises
With the bench in the flat position, you can do a range of dumbbell exercises, including dumbbell rows for your latissimus dorsi (lats), deltoids (delts) and biceps, chest flyes and presses to give your pectorals (pecs) a good workout, and shoulder presses for your delts. You can also use the foam cushions to do preacher curls, which are a great isolation exercise for the biceps.
- You can also use the handles next to the foam cushions to do inclined pushups, which work the lower portion of your pecs, however this is a very easy exercise and probably only suitable for people still developing the strength to do regular pushups.
