Unilateral Converging Flat Chest Press -- Legend Fitness (6003)
Legend Fitness 6003 Unilateral Converging Flat Chest Press - Starting in high school, the bench press has always been one of the true measurements of human strength. The bench press has built some of the strongest men with the most well defined pecs in history. Enter any commercial gym and more often than not youll find it hard to locate an Olympic bench thats not already occupied. The bench press is the king of upper body development and power!
Throughout the years the bench press has become an icon in the world of weightlifting protocols. However, performing a bench press with an Olympic bar is not without hindrance to some people. Some find the bar hard to balance or re-rack when a set is completed or dont feel completely comfortable performing this exercise without a spotter standing by. The LeverEDGE unilateral chest press by Legend Fitness provides a safe alternative to benching with an Olympic bar and can completely replace the Olympic bench altogether or be used as a frequent alternative to maximize gains by providing added muscle confusion. Unlike most plate loaded chest presses, the Legend 6003 can hold up to 9 Olympic plates on each side which makes it suitable for any and all strength levels.
The unilateral movement that the 6003 provides is beneficial in many ways. Each arm moves independently, a lot like performing dumbbell chest presses, and will quickly identify any weaknesses or imbalances the user may have so that they can be corrected. Unlike using a barbell to perform bench presses, unilateral handles can be used to perform alternating chest presses for added training variety. Converging movement is yet another benefit of performing the unilateral bench press. At the bottom of the movement the hands begin at a width comfortable to the user and similar to the width used if benching with a bar. As the movement is executed, the angle of the handles bring the hands closer together, again similar to dumbbells, and allow the pec muscles to fully contract at the top of the press. No need for a spotter on this chest press! The 6003 is equipped with spring loaded lever stops that, by way of six different pop-pin height settings, pre-determine the resting point of the handles before and after the exercise. No more rolling the bar down your chest and on to your gut if you cant complete the last rep!
