Overview of features
This weight bench is a high-quality adjustable bench that can be used in an incline, decline, or flat position. This allows you to perform a wide variety of exercises using this bench, especially for your upper body. For example, rather than just doing flat dumbbell presses, you can place the bench in the incline position which will work not only your arms, but your lower pectoral muscles too.
The 1,500 pound weight capacity makes this bench an ideal choice for both beginners and seasoned lifters who prefer training with much heavier weights.
The bench is covered with 3 inches of Duracraft padding. This provides you with a comfortable support, even when you are doing heavy bench presses. There are many compatible power racks that can be added to the XM-7630 to create a more diverse workout regimen.
The adjustable seat can be placed in 3 positions. This means that you can perform incline or decline exercises very comfortably. There is also a foot bar to hook your feet behind to keep you firmly in place when performing bench presses, situps, and other exercises that require your legs to stay still.
This bench is very robust and sturdy. There is a bit of a gap between the seat and backrest when set to the flat position which can be a bit surprising at first, but this is very common with adjustable weight benches.
