- Grooved rubber feet to keep flat bench in place.
- Grippy padded material to prevent slipping during workout.
- Decline capability with leg attachment.
- Why would I choose the AB-5100?
- Pop pins for seat and back pad adjustments.
- Narrow front post for optimal feet placement.
- Ideal for commercial use because of the familiarity to other commercial benches at gyms.
- Ability to add the leg attachment opens up decline options and adds versatility.
- What are the main differences between the AB-5000 and AB-5100?
- The main difference between the 5000 and 5100 is the seat design. The AB-5000 ZeroGap eliminates the gap between the back and seat pads. The AB-5100 is a rock-solid bench that has a minimal pad gap (4"). Both are commercial grade, but the simplicity of the seat design on the 5100 lends itself better to larger commercial gyms. The AB-5000 ZG has a unique design that needs a few seconds of explanation, which is often not given in larger commercial/apartment gyms, but it is awesome for home & garage gyms, athletic facilities with coaches/S&C coaches around, and smaller training facilities like personal training centers, studios, and hardcore gyms.
- Can I store this bench vertically?
- Yes, however there will be pressure on the pad and therefore there is potential damage to the pad.
- M12x90 square neck, M10x50 hex screw.
Assembly Tips and Tricks:
- When assembling the back pad, you will need to loosely thread the bolts in middle section. Then begin to thread the other 4 bolts in. Once all bolts are loosely threaded, tighten middle section first. Then tighten other 4 bolts in an “X” pattern.
- Tighten base bolts in an “X” pattern as well.
- If there is any play in the back or seat pad, tighten bolts on each frame.
