Overview of Soozier 80″ Power Tower
The adjustable sit up bench
What makes this pull up tower different from other models is that it comes with an adjustable ab bench.
Why is adjustability useful?
That means you can increase or decrease the angle of the board to have less or more resistance. You can set the slant board into 7 positions. Hence, you can have more personalized and versatile ab training.
It is suitable for beginners who can start at a lower angle for minimum resistance. And, as they get better, they can switch to a more steep level to keep developing their abs.
Are you a pro athlete?
Can you see the maximum high of the ab bench?
Incredibly steep, isn’t it?
That is what you need if your abdominal muscles have stopped growing. A new, incredibly tough impact that they must get used to.
Both the bench and leg rollers are thickly-padded to perform decline sit ups without hurting your back and knees. The board has 43-1/2″ x 9-1/2″ dimensions. The ab bench is removable to have space for dips and leg raises.
2. The pull-up station
Firstly, Soozier features a multi-grip pull-up bar allowing you to do more types of chin-ups and pull-ups. That feature is pretty useful since you focus on one particular muscle group more efficiently and a have more versatile upper body workout.
The height of the tower is 80,” which is tall enough for even bigger guys to use it comfortably since they have plenty of room to go down. The bars are covered with non-slip material for a better grip.
However, there are two things I have to mention related to the pull-up station.
Firstly, all the stations are on the same side. This way, you have to do chin and pull-ups between the bars of the vertical knee raise station. For an average user, it is not a problem since they have enough space between. But, big guys may find it narrow to exercise.
The other problem is the multi-grip chin-up station. Other power towers typically have a contiguous bar this way, the user can pick the most suitable grip width. With Soozier, you have only a limited option to modify the grip width.
3. Vertical knee raise (VKR) & dip station
The VKR section is very comfortable to use thanks to the thickly-padded arm and backrest. The padding is convenient and keeps the body in the right position during knee and leg lifts. Plus, you have enough room since it is rather high.
The dip handles are typical pieces covered with non-slip material for a firm grip. Again, because of the height of the tower, even taller users shave enough space at the bottom.
Well, shorter men or women may find the VKR and dip bars a bit wide. But, unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about it since neither of them is adjustable.
4. The construction & Assembly
The maximum weight limit is 660 pounds.
Actually, I haven’t seen another pull-up dip station with such a high maximum limit. It is an excellent construction made of heavy-duty steel. But, because of that, Soozier is massive, 110 pounds. So, it is not easy to relocate once it is assembled.
Now let’s talk about the assembly.
Well, it is the weakest point of the machine.
Firstly, the manufacturer doesn’t give an easy to follow manual. If you haven’t done a similar task before, you may find it hard to understand the instructions.
Another problem, this home gym equipment is not small, so for assembly, you will need a hand. And, once you are ready, it is not easy to move from one place to another.
Finally, it is built up from many pieces, and you will need tools, at least an adjustable wrench and a screwdriver for assembly.
- Massive and stable construction.
- More versatile than other towers
- Enhanced core training
- Complicated assembly
- Big and heavy fitness station
Compared to other power towers, because of the sit up bench, Soozier provides more possibilities than other models, and the price is just a little bit higher. This home workout equipment is an excellent choice for everyone who wants to train at home with bodyweight exercises.
