Features & Highlights
- Ladder Design – The Prime Adjustable Bench uses a ladder-style design with a unique look and feel compared to some other ladder-style benches that use traditional hooks. The Prime bench includes a recessed area with laser cutouts to facilitate the adjustment. It includes numbered callouts on both sides and generally looks very refined. Ladder designs in general are easier and faster to use than a telescoping spine.
- # of Adjustments – The bench offers 10 back adjustments and 5 seat adjustments for a total of 35 potential adjustment options. The back pad ranges from 0 degrees to 85 degrees (0, 15, 20, 30, 35, 40, 45, 65, 75, 85).
- Pad/Seat Gap – The Prime bench offers a minimal gap between the seat and the back pad, which is a benefit relative to some other adjustable benches. This will feel more comfortable when performing a flat bench press. Even still, a gap is present, so if you do a lot of flat bench pressing, having an IPF-height flat bench (more on this below) might be a good idea.
- Pad Width – One feature of this bench that will be more controversial is the 10″ pad width. The most common pad width is 12″, which many users find to be very comfortable and supportive. That said, some users do prefer a narrower bench pad, so it will ultimately come down to personal preference.
- Weight Limit – The Prime Adjustable Bench has a 1,000lb rating in the flat position and a 600lb limit in the incline position, both of which are in-line with industry standards.
- Attachments – The bench has two add-on attachments: a leg attachment for decline movements and dual elbow pads for arm curls. The elbow pads are a unique feature that can help isolate the arms.
- Not IPF Height – This bench has a height of 18″ when in the flat position, which is just outside of IPF specs (~17.7″ max). This isn't uncommon with adjustable benches, but some users may struggle to get efficient leg drive as compared to something shorter. Again, if you're training the flat bench press often, an IPF-height bench might be a good companion to the Prime Adjustable Bench.
- Includes Wheels & Handle – Like most adjustable benches, this bench does include a handle and wheels.
- Tripod Design – The front foot of this bench is a single post, which greatly helps with finding optimal foot position. That said, the handle is off to the side of the bench, which limits some of the benefits of the single post. Still, there should be plenty of room for users to move their feet around.
- Grippy Vinyl – This bench offers a textured vinyl that produces a great grip and reduces slippage while benching.
