      Comments about Bowflex SelectTech 5.1 Series Bench:

      I bought this after learning how to properly workout from a personal trainer. This bench is better than anything that the trainer had in his facility. So sturdy, easy to use, beautiful design and finish. When I complete a set I rotate to another set which requires a change to the bench setup. This bench can very easily be switched between setups from set to set without much work at all, in just a matter of seconds. For example, I can switch the bench from a complete recline position for situps, to a sitting position with back support for arm curls. This takes less than 10 seconds and requires no loosening or tightening of screws. Just pull a release and the seat adjusts, grab the backrest and move it where you need it...done! Excellent design.

        Comments about Bowflex SelectTech 5.1 Series Bench:

        I used to work out at the gym 6 days a week. With my new work schedule that is no longer possible. I have the Bowflex Select Tech weights and now this bench. I have purchased probably 4 or 5 weight benches through various places and I have returned them all. They were either wobbly or cheaply made. The Bowflex bench is a solid unit that doesnt wobble and gives great support. I enjoy using it and have not had any problems with it. I also just ordererd the Extreme 2 SE home gym and I can not wait for it to get here!

          Comments about Bowflex SelectTech 5.1 Series Bench:

          I've been working out in a gym regularly for over 5 years. I bought this bench with high hopes. It was easy to assemble, and is a solid bench. Unfortunatly it seems to be designed for giants! I'm 5'10 and I feel like a [*] on it. simply sitting with my legs forward, my feet arent solid on the floor. When doing flat chest press, my head is far below the head rest. Another major flaw - when seated on the bench with dumbells resting on knees, my feet are directly on the benche's "anti teeter thingys" (for lack of better vocabulary) This is fine before a set but after popping out a bunch reps and wanting to bring your dumbells down where are your feet falling? Not pleasent if your moving heavy weight.

              • Q:

                I am currently dealing with a bulging disk and need to do various exercises on a firm surface as prescribed by my physical therapist. I also cannot sit on something too low as it is difficult to get up/down. When you say 20" H, does that mean the sitting point is at 20" as that seems quite low? Also, I am 6'1, will the lie down position work for doing exercises such as arching my back, or being on my hands and knees kicking my legs behind me? Thanks!

                  A:

                  Hi Ian. The height of the bench either at the sitting position or when it is horizontal is 20". We highly recommend that you check with your doctor regarding your particular exercise needs. The Bowflex SelectTech 5.1 bench is a very popular item, largely because it is designed to be very low impact. However, your experience is subjective, so we cannot determine whether or not the bench would be right for you. We highly recommend seeking professional assistance before making any decisions regarding a purchase.

                  A:

                  While it partially depends on the length of your torso, you will probably be fine. I had someone 6' 2" lay down on the bench and they were comfortable with some room to spare. The padded part of the bench is 53" long. Remember that your satisfaction is guaranteed.

                  The padded bench top folds flat, but it doesn't collapse any further than that. If you remove the leg hold down brace you could lean it up against a wall to save some room.

                • CUSTOMER CARE

                  A:

                  1) Since your feet will hang down and under the rollers, a regular sit up would put a lot of stress on your quads as you recline to the bench. But I just tried it out and you can definitely do effective crunches where you don't recline all the way to the bench.
                  2) The max user weight for the bench is 300 lbs so you're okay there. Your impressive bench press, however, exceeds the maximum lifting load -- also 300 lbs.
