INDEPTH PRODUCT REVIEW
The Sportsman home gym is well constructed. It uses nylon-coated, aircraft grade cable and a fiberglass pulley structure with ball bearing movement on a solid axle rotation mechanism for smooth and quiet operation. The cable system is rated for 2200 pounds. The weight stack is 150 pounds.
This home gym uses a dual pulley system: one for upper body workouts and one for lower body workouts. There is no need to change cables when using different accessories. This saves time in your workout.
The bench and backrest are well padded for comfort. The main chest press arm has a pivoting handle instead of fixed handles. This automatically adjusts to your natural plane of motion to reduce stress on your wrists and more effectively target your chest muscles.
It also comes with a wide grip lat bar, that allows you to do a variety of pulldown movements to develop the muscles in your back and biceps. The smaller straight bar allows you to do tricep pushdowns and pulldowns.
- Only 150 pounds of weights
- Bench is not adjustable
