Abs Bench Review – Why it Totally Rocks!
Review of the Abs Company Ab Bench X2
If you have the means and the madness people, this is MORE than just a sit up bench...
This is an elite product and a must have ab machine for the ultimate, high-end home gym!
This product came out into the market during the last quarter of 2013.
But because of the steep retail price, this ab machine has mostly been gracing the floors of places like World Gym, Planet Fitness, Fitness Lady and many other popular membership gyms instead of homes.
This is the ONLY commercial quality abs bench in the retail market that will work both your upper and lower abdominals at the same time.
Now, if you're not turned off at the thought of spending over $1000 on a single piece of fitness equipment designed to focus on just your core area, then read on...
First, to see it in action, watch this short video:
Very cool - Right?
The Abs Bench X2 is made by the Abs Company who are the makers of the ab coaster and ab roller. One of those being an excellent product and the other one, mmmmm... not so much (see our Ab Coaster Review and Ab Roller Review to find out more).
So if you watched the video, you would have seen in 60 seconds what would take about 800 words or more to explain in detail.
In a nut-shell, this is more than just some sit-up bench. This machine will work your upper and lower abs and it can do so at the same time if you like.
- Heavy Duty Steel Construction
- Forward and Reverse Crunch Design
- Upper & Lower Weight Horns
- Up to 50 lbs Olympic Weight Plate capacity
- Dimensions are: 82” LONG x 36” WIDE x 41” HIGH
- Weight: 175 lbs
It will challenge even the advanced exerciser because the abs bench allows you to add weight plates to both the top and bottom areas.
That means added resistance = muscle growth.
The design of the padding for this bench is superb. The ergonomics of the padding shape and the foot peg positioning allows for proper comfort and support.
Why does that matter?
Well, you'll simply work out longer and harder with proper support and probably have far less chance for injury. Plus it will help you to maintain proper form which is crucial for building the desired shape while also avoiding injury.
It's gym quality equipment which means it has been constructed from high quality materials that can take continual and heavy use before ever wearing out.
It also means that it can support some of you bigger folks out there.
No wimply consrtuction here, or cheap parts that might bend or break.
Of course - no matter how well designed fitness machinery can be, there is always some genius out there that manages to execute an exercise in some weird way that is dangerous and causes injury. Please don't risk long term pain by being that guy/gal! Follow the guidelines for proper use with any fitness gadget or machine.
