Powerline P2X Home Gym | Is it Right for You?

The Powerline P2X Home Gym from Body-Solid is an excellent basic strength machine that is durable and well-built. Novice lifters will gain the most from this machine. Intermediate lifters may benefit from choosing a home gym with a squat rack with a free barbell if your goal is to increase strength.

Something I like about the Powerline P2X Home Gym is that it comes with dozens of different exercise choices, possible thanks to six different stations. The Powerline P2X Home Gym comes with multi-function press arms, and lat pulldown bar, a high pulley station, a mid pulley station, an ab crunch feature, functional pulleys, a low pulley station with seated row capabilities, a leg developer with multiple functions, and more.

Another thing that I like about the Powerline P2X Home Gym is that all adjustments are easily (made). Changing the function of the press arms and leg developer is straightforward. Also, the weight stack is controlled by a simple pin that needs to be (inserted) where you want it to go.

I also like that the Powerline P2X Home Gym has a very comfortable seat that is well-padded and features a vinyl coating. Moreover, the seat is very convenient because it’s adjustable for height and position, which is also true for the backrest. All in all, the Powerline P2X Home Gym is very comfortable, thanks to the fact that it has lots of padding and grip wherever they are needed.

Body-Solid G2B Home Gym | What is Bi-Angular Motion?

One of the most popular questions about the Body-Solid G2B Home Gym is what is Bi-Angular motion, what is it supposed to do for me, and does it work? Bi-Angular action is a fancy term meaning a wide range of movement. When users are free to stretch their arms, they can work out more muscles and spend less time working out without compromising the benefits of your workout.

With this in mind, the BiAngular motion feature mimics the motions of a dumbbell workout, eliminating the need for expensive, space-consuming dumbbells. The Body-Solid G2B also features an impressively small footprint compared to the 40+ exercises users can perform.

The G2B also features incredibly fluid motion thanks in part to the SmoothGlide bearing system that reduces unnecessary friction during workouts. The Body-Solid 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.

Built with a heavy-duty 12 gauge steel frame, the Body-Solid G2B Home Gym remains stable during workouts. Additionally, it has a powder coat finish to reduce damage from weather and scratches. The 4.5″ pulleys have 2,200 lb tension strength, military spec, aircraft cables and are fiberglass, making them impact resistance and designed to last a lifetime.

The BodyCraft X2 Dual Stack Gym lives up to its name as a family home gym and allows multiple people to work out simultaneously on the device.
