How it works
Okay, let us get into the particulars of this amazing apparatus. You can do so many bench exercises on them such as military lifts, chest presses, and because of the leg developer you can also do leg lifts with no problem. The bench itself has some real good features; for example, it is adjustable in that it can be adjusted to different levels; that is it can decline and incline for different purposes and different workout activities. Here are some of the advantages of this change of level feature on the bench
- If you are to incline it just a few degrees, then this will allow you to do some serious work on the muscle fibres of your upper chest region and so it will strengthen your pectoralis muscles to give you a muscular looking chest. There is a catch however; you should be careful not to incline it to a very high level because at such an angle, if you are doing lifts, you put your shoulder joints in danger of injury from the pressure that will be exerted on it; so you must be careful when setting that height.
- If you chose to decline the bench, then you will be able to work on your lower chest region between your ribcage and your abdomen. This will allow you to improve on your developing abs in your abdomen.
These two methods will give you a look that will have the ladies looking at you if you are a man and it will give you that toned look you have been looking for if you are a woman.
Apart from these types of exercises you can also do overhead lifts and bicep curls. This is made possible if you adjust the bench so that it is almost like a seat on which you can lean your back against. This action will help you to protect your back from any possible injury as well as keep you honest; it will prevent you from cheating on your exercise by preventing your body from rocking back and forth in a bid to build momentum to lift the dumbbell; if you do this you may get injured and doles work which would beat the purpose of you getting the machine. It also helps you to keep your legs firmly planted on the ground so that you do not drop or misbalance any of the weights while you are lifting.
