Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bench
The Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bench Series 3.1 is designed to assist with building muscular strength in the legs while sitting in a corrected posture. It comes with an overall 15-year warranty with a one-year warranty on the padding alone. Its’ maximum weight is around 300 lbs and it comes with a removable leg brace. It comes with four adjustable positions.
One of the main reported pros with the Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bench Series 3.1 is that since you are seated or lying down in a corrected position, it can easily be used with a dumbbell workout. One recommended the PowerBlock Classic Adjustable Dumbbell set, which is also currently available from Amazon and are capable of adjusting to up to 45 pounds in 5-pound intervals. The PowerBlock SportBlock Dumbbells are also recommended and currently available on Amazon. They are capable of adjusting to up to 24 pounds. Overall, the Bowflex SelectTech is capable of being used for over 30 different exercises.
One of its most advantageous features is probably its removable hold-down leg brace. The leg brace is available in order to assist with having a more declining posture during the leg lifts. Many people who are over six feet tall have taken very well to the Bowflex Tech because of its overall sturdiness, comfort and outward curve. The leg brace has also been reported to help them stay comfortably seated when working out.
The Bowflex SelectTech has been reported to be overall very easy to assemble although one common complaint is that its nuts are too loose. Fortunately they’re very easy to tighten if you own a screw and it does come with two wrenches to help you hold the bolts in place. It is overall very easy to adjust.
Its adjustability can be flat, at a -10 degree angle, at a 45-degree angle and at a 90-degree angle. There were some complaints about the 45-degree angle being initially slightly uncomfortable but that it wasn’t anything that they couldn’t adjust to. Especially since it may be the only means of working out for some, Bowflex Tech wants to meet those needs and doesn’t want their customers to feel limited to one position. This particular SelectTech is made mainly for those who primarily prefer to do leg presses and dumbbell workouts.
Probably another one of its most advantageous features is that since it doesn’t take up too much space, the Bowflex SelectTech can fit into basically any room in your house or just anywhere where you can get a little creative with your space. It is tall but not wide so it is mainly a fitting of height that you will need to be concerned about.
The overall customer score is four-and-a half to five stars. If you are someone who is six feet tall or over this bench will probably serve you well. It has been reported to be easy to assemble, adjust and to use. The removable leg brace has also been reported to be particularly handy as well. If you are not satisfied or if it doesn’t arrive, Amazon will be more than happy to work with you quickly to ensure that the problem is solved.
