Bodycraft ABS System Exercise Stations and Features:

Active Balance System™ Simply engage the pin for traditional "machine style" bench press, or, pull the pin for "barbell style" bench press. In other words, when the overhead pin is engaged, the press arm is rigid like all other home gyms. When the pin is pulled, the press arm is allowed to swivel just enough that the user must balance the press arm, just like a barbell. The Active Balance System provides for symmetry and all the benefits of a barbell, yet the safety of a machine!

Unique Double-Up Feature: increases the resistance to a 1:2 ratio, providing up to 400 pounds of resistance on press arm.

Adjustable Arms Cable Station: with 11 position adjustments, allows for a very wide array of exercises including Functional Training, Sports Specific, Core Training and (cable) Dumbbell Training.

Ab Crunch/Mid Pulley Station: for abdominal training, standing rows, etc.

Low Pulley Station: swivels to accommodate your space requirements. Includes a foot plate for low rows, and provides for abductor and adductor leg kicks, arm curls, upright rows, etc.

High Pulley Station: for lat pull downs, and triceps push downs. Leg extension and curl station provides seated leg extension and seated leg curl.

Leg/Thigh Station: provides for seated leg curls, standing leg curls, and seated leg extensions.

Fully adjustable: to fit any size user. The seat is easily adjusted while sitting. Simply squeeze the remote handle conveniently placed under the seat and the spring-assisted seat easily moves to your desired height. The ergonomically designed back pad adjusts front-to-back then automatically "cradles" the user for full support. The dual-layered Orthopaedic Back Pad is designed to provide full lumbar support while reducing stress on the spine.

Sealed, internally lubricated bearings: at pivot points for exceptionally smooth performance. Optional Leg Press attachment: for full leg development. Space saving design: allows placement against wall.

*NOTE: After the age of 20, if we do not strength train we lose between 2.2 and 3.2kg of muscle every decade.
Fortunately, research shows that a standard strength training program can increase muscle mass by 1.4kgs over an eight week training period.
This is the typical response for men and women who do 25 minutes of strength training one day a week.
Although endurance exercise can improve our cardiovascular fitness, it doesn’t stop muscle loss.
