The Body-Solid G2B Bi-Angular home gym also features incredibly fluid motion thanks to the SmoothGlide bearing system that reduces unnecessary friction during workouts. In addition, the G2B comes with 160 lbs of selectorized weight stack resistance adjustable in 10 lb increments; users may purchase an upgrade boosting weight resistance to 210 lbs.
