Body Solid Powerline PFID130X Review
The PFID130X is a slight upgrade to the PFID125X also being a ‘flat, incline, decline bench’ but is also similarly best priced at around $150. The idea behind it, is that it helps support correct & proper form for when you are performing press exercises (e.g. chest & shoulder presses) with either a dumbbell or barbell set.
It allows for a quick four position alteration on a ladder system (that can be seen in the image above) and you can also adjust it via the seat pad (at four separate positions) for bent knee sit ups — as it also comes with a secure T bar leg hold down as well. Again, a solid bench — more than capable of holding 500 lbs) that comes at a very good price.
