Proformance Plus PPS-200 Chest Press - The Proformance Plus Chest Press by TuffStuff provides a great way to work your chest, shoulders, and triceps while eliminating the need for a spotter. The bench press has long been recognized as a top shelf exercise for adding upper body mass and strength. The one drawback is that bench pressing is not safe to perform alone, as you run the risk of being pinned if you cannot complete a repetition. One way around this limitation is to bench press with dumbbells, but the dumbbell bench press has a limitation of its own. Dumbbells are bulky and awkward to hoist into pressing position. Few men relish the thought of wrestling with dumbbells in excess of 100 pounds, yet many are capable of benching far more than this. Another way to bench press safely in solitude is to set up a utility bench inside a power rack with the safety supports in position to catch the bar in case of a missed lift. Though this is a viable option, anyone who has ever tried it knows it can be time consuming to set up.
In the ten minutes or so that it might take you to set up for power rack bench pressing, you could be three or four sets into a result-producing pressing workout on the The Proformance Plus Selectorized Chest Press. If you miss a rep, just return the weight to the starting position with no danger of being pinned. The seat offers a gas-assisted adjustment that alters the starting position of the handles so you can work your chest from different angles. Set it low to position the handles high and work your upper pecs or high to position the handles low and work your lower pecs. Regardless of the start position, the floating handles allow you to customize your wrist position as you press, and they converge for a stronger pectoral contraction. The pressing arms also adjust forwards and backwards with a pop pin, enabling you to work through an extended or shortened range of motion. This feature is important both for safety and as an overload tool. Some lifters may choose to work through a shorter range of motion simply because they are not comfortable in a stretched position, while others may restrict the range of motion in order to train their lockout and become accustomed to handling more weight.
