For years the Ab boards and Sit up benches have dominated the market and companies have competed in their attempts to deliver the best, most ergonomically refined and efficient design.
Today we review one of the more unique sit up benches out there – a design that offers a lot of innovations and is perfectly catered for both beginners and experienced weight trainers.
This particle ab bench also featured highly when we compared it to the best sit up benches on the market in this article, which is worth taking a look at.
Body Solid is a tried and tested brand name, and their output was always praised. And their recent model, the GAB60 Adjustable Ab Board is certainly another solid output in the market of sit up benches. With some curious features and a reasonable price tag, this piece of equipment is definitely worthy of your attention.
Where most ab boards tend to share a certain set of pre designed features, the GAB60 from Body Solid goes one step further and tries to slightly re-invent things. The center piece of this bench is its adjustable, 12 position support beam, which dominates the design and allows for an incredible range of adjustment – from near flat to extremely inclined angles – giving you the option of the ultimate challenge.
With perfected dimensions, sturdy construction and mobility, this bench fits almost every criteria.
One noticeable oddity concerning the design is the prominent main support beam on which the bench itself slides. Tall and bulky, it takes a lot of space height wise and visually looks clunky – a fact which might not suit every user. But in all honesty, looks are the least factor – it’s the efficiency that matters, and GAB60 lacks none of it! With this model, the road to the perfect six pack is shorter than ever.
The overall quality of the build is very high, with a 2 x 2 inch main frame that ensures sturdiness and removes the possibility of wobbly exercises. The bench itself, as well as the 8 inch foam rollers are all perfectly ergonomic, and covered with black leather and Dura Firm padding. The rollers are also oversized, and all of these add to the overall comfort which can only be praised.
The entire bench can be moved out of way with the help of two integrated wheels, ensuring an easy and no-effort moving about.
Both with the padding, and the added plastic caps throughout the bench, every risk is completely removed and the comfort put at the highest level.
Needless to say, this bench is robust and durable, almost to the point where it becomes ungainly. Even so, you will have no worries about quality – Body Solid went all in.
Although simple and straightforward in its uses, the GAB60 perfectly does the task for which it was designed. Efficient, well built and finely adjustable, this sit up bench is a great choice for beginners and pros alike.
And if you add the reasonable price tag, you will quickly realize that when the market of ab benches is considered, this model from Body Solid is certainly up there among the best.
