Review 1 – Stamina Pro Ab-Hyper Bench is a Very good addition to home gym
I prefer not buying a piece of equipment that only does one or two things. Stamina Pro Ab-Hyper Bench is a very good addition to a home gym. You have a lot of exercise uses in a small easy to store size with this bench. The bench is a little short for me (6’3″ 290lbs); another 10-14 inches on the bench would give it 6 out of 5 stars. The bench works pretty well for its size for the wife (4’11”) and kid (5’9″).
There is a weight limit of 250lbs for this bench; which, I did not see or notice until I was putting it together when reading the instructions. So far, it has handled my size and weight without any issues. We do the sit-ups, crunches, hyper extensions, side hyper extensions, triceps bench dips, concentrated curls, dumbbell step ups, dumbbell pullovers, split squat with dumbbells, dumbbell decline press, and decline/regular dumbbell flyes. We don’t have any problems with the amount of padding for the bench and knee/ankle pads. It’s a keeper.
Review 2 – Satisfied
– For Hyper: It does what is claims, and allows plenty of downward (forward) extension. It is sturdy enough for me (5′ 10″ /220 lbs). Yes the pads could be spaced farther apart to account for my male parts but it doesn’t prevent you from using it. For xtra padding, I usually fold up a towel and place it over the pads and this works fine.
– For Abs: It does what is claims and back board is large enough for someone up to 6’0″.
– For Quality: Good for ~ $200, all the parts were present in the box. Only improvement I might make myself is to add some lock washers at some of the connections but none of the nuts/bolts have come undone after 3 weeks of use. Storage is easy, I just fold it up (takes only a minute) and stand it against the wall in a corner. I would recommend this product.
Review 3 – Stamina Pro Ab-Hyper Bench is a Great bench – especially for a small female
I received the Stamina Pro Ab-Hyper Bench in the time frame it was promised- which was very promptly.
The package was sturdy. Not too heavy but heavy enough to know this was a good quality item.
Directions were easy to read. It took me 40 mins to assemble – by myself. The time also included a good 10-15 mins on tightening the bolts. I recommend using two socket wrenches. I am 5’3″ and 100 lbs.
The reason I give it 4 stars is because- there are four screw holes on the underside of the bench- that are mensch to go into these rails. Only 3 of the four fit. The fourth hole (on under side of bench) was out of alignment. This makes the bench somewhat shaky. I might contact the seller and ask for exchange on bench (part only – so I don’t have to take entire bench apart).
Be aware that the bolts, washers and etc are oiled – and can leave a brownish reddish residue. Was a non issue for me.
I like that you can move around the two cushion pieces that go along ur calves. Makes it easy to adjust- as I use to 1) lay on the bench with my legs under them for crunches (and the bench can be adjusted to incline downward for more resistance), 2) stand forward for back hyper and 3) stand sideways for oblique workouts.
It was very important for me to find a hyper bench that had a standing for your feet- bc I was looking for one that I could do oblique workout on. As one reviewer mentioned- it’s possible – but takes some getting used to.
I did my obliques on there- but felt that if I was any taller- I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing so- as it still felt awkward for my size- but I do feel in my case it’s just something I need to get used to.
When I laid back to do crunches- my head touched within a couple inches of the end of the bench. So if you’re much taller than I- you may plan on having your head exceeding the end of the bench
Overall- I feel like it’s a great bench- especially for the price. It’s really versatile, easy to adjust- works great for someone my size- and – I’ll update you – if I decide to contact seller regarding switching out the bench.
