Simple, Efficient & Effective
While this bench looks like something anyone could design, it is actually German ingenuity at its finest. The combination of quality materials and a design that has evolved over the years delivers a bench that is tough whilst being extremely affordable.
Another overlooked factor that contributes to the affordability is that it is flat packed to perfection – Ikea would be proud! With OH&S standards mandating cartons over 25kg being put on a pallet, the ATX® Flat Bench Pro avoids these additional costs.
Most importantly for the gym owner, the simple design means that there are fewer things that can break!
It is rare to find a full-sized flat bench made to IPF specifications, which does not cost an arm and a leg.
The ATX® Flat Bench Pro features a 122 cm x 30 cm x 5 cm backrest pad. For you heavy benchers out there, when it comes to bench width, bigger is better. Most gym and FID benches have pads that are 25cm wide. To the layman, 5cm might not seem like a lot, but this extra width contributes notably to your stability under a heavy barbell.
Even the upholstery has been part of the evolution. The foam is firm and covered in textured PU leather. The texture will give you more grip compared to traditional smooth finishes.
Unlike the other powerlifting lifts, once you have unracked the weight, you are reliant on your gym equipment to complete the lift. If your bench is not stable you simply won’t be able to perform to the best of your ability.
Naturally, the 60cm wide support beam gives the bench lateral stability. If you are shopping around you will notice that it is wider than a lot of benches. The extra width compensates for the single-leg support at the opposite end. This is essential to allow all bench press feet positions.
There are some high-end benches that don’t have rubber feet. What is the big deal you may ask? Well if your gym has concrete floors and you set up/bench with significant leg drive, you might find your bench slipping around when you least expect it.
The feet are made from vulcanised rubber which is the ideal combination of shock absorption and durability for a gym environment.
