Bowflex SelectTech 5.1 Adjustable Bench Review
Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bench Series 5.1 Review
Manufactured from heavy-duty commercial quality steel and durable upholstery, the Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bench Series 5.1 is similar to the 3.1 Series from Bowflex, but the biggest difference is how there are more angles to choose from. While the 3.1 had an incline of 0/45/90 degrees, the 5.1 can be adjusted to six different positions, -17/0/30/45/60/90.
No doubt those who are feeling strained or injured from a previous workout will benefit, but people who want more inclines to work with are sure to appreciate the added variety as well.
The 5.1 Series bench also does a very good job at correcting posture and stabilizing your positioning for a safe, muscle-building free-weight workout, which is of course always important.
Other features include a removable leg hold-down brace for even further decline position support, and transport wheels for easy storage.
The Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bench can be used with over 30 different exercises.
