The Powertec leverage gyms are renowned for being the very best leverage gyms money can buy. In this Powertec workbench multi system review we take a look at what claims to be the number one selling leverage home gym in the world. So what is it that makes the Powertec range and in particular, the multi system so popular?
Let’s take a look at it’s main features first…
- 3 person access: Allows for 3 people to workout at 3 separate stations at any one time.
- 12 single station machines: Includes bench press, squat, shoulder press, calf raises, tricep extensions, bicep curls, leg curls, lat pulldowns, seated row, tricep press, shrugs, and ab crunch.
- Option to add further accessories including; leg press, pec flyes, and machine dips.
- Huge resistance possibilities: Multi-press station for chest and shoulder exercises allows up to 500 lbs resistance, squat station for quads and calves has 600 lbs capacity, lat/triceps station for back and arms has a 400 lb capacity, leg extension station has a 200 lb capacity, the ab crunch station has a 150 lb capacity
- LeverGym advantage: Lever arms drive the exercises. Weight plates are loaded directly onto the lover which simply replaces the barbell thus providing the natural feel and resistance of free weight with the safety and control of a machine.
- Very little little maintenance: The Workbench Multi System has no cables or pulleys. All exercises incorporate bearing driven lever arms to provide a smooth and quiet operation.
HomeGymCritic’s Powertec Workbench Multi-system Review
This gym has seriously thrown me off my office chair as I’m writing this review, it’s a truly special piece of equipment and it’s little wonder that it’s the best selling gym of its kind.
As you can see, there’s a wide range of exercises available, more than enough to provide a really solid workout for a person of any fitness level. Also, the maximum capacity for each station is more than enough for even the most serious of bodybuilders.
The gym itself is as you can imagine very heavy at 475 lbs, and that’s without any weight plates on the machine. Which leads me on to my next point, you’ll need to buy olympic weight plates for the Powertec multi-system gym, which of course can be quite expensive compared to standard plates. I’d recommend buying enough plates to fit all stations, so you don’t need to keep on transferring weights from station to station.
Because the gym is so heavy (very close to commercial) with weight plates included you need to make sure your floor can handle the added weight, rubber gym mats are quite inexpensive, you can use them to prevent any damage to your flooring.
Assembly is as you’d expect, time consuming. It’s not difficult but most people seem to have it set up within 5-10 hours.
The Powertec multisystem gym is relatively affordable, and is extra competitive compared to other gyms of its type.
Finally, I’d recommend opting for a set of dumbbells and a barbell so you can perform flyes, deadlifts, and curls.
