Choice of Black or Industrial Yellow.
The best strength-building exercises are compound exercises - major multi-joint movements that reflect everyday life. Few home gyms do them, and even then, often poorly. The LeverGym permits the very best form of both compound and isolation exercises.
Because the mechanism guides the movement, the trainer can concentrate on the lift or press. Many feel it gets better results than free weight training. Or you can use circuits - mix resistance levels, rest lengths, and rep numbers and you can meet variable cardio, leanness and strength aims. All done in a compact space. It’s superbly made, and solid. 132 kg empty, it takes up a lot less space than a rack. (Doesn't need a 7-foot bar and extra at the ends ) Dimensions are in a pic above.
You get the same grip width as an Olympic bar, but greater grip variety, and an all-angle bench. Close-grip bar as well (removable). Wheels on the bench get it out of the way fast.
It offers self-spotting safety. Just move a big pin. stops the weight dropping unpleasantly. And with control and guidance with the lever arms, there's less concern about stability. Focus on the lift or press. 220 kg on the press arms, which are isolateral - use them barbell-style, or independently. (Muscles develop differently. Balance them with isolateral exercise) And it brings variety. And between-exercise changes are simpler, fewer and faster than with a rack.
Your back: cable pull-downs; superb cable rows (130 kg) and bent-over rows on the bench press arms blast your back from all angles.
Legs: squats perfectly isolate the quads. 220 kg. Excellent lunges as well. Lever action stabilises you. Comfortable shoulder pad.
The cable tower offers a range of pull-downs, press-down, rows, and isolation exercises. All angles of shoulders, core, cross-body twists, biceps, triceps, adductors and abductors (thigh movements)
Machine is tough, with superb finish and quality. The lever arms use heavy steel and industrial bearings. Meets the European Union's EN 957 standard for commercial use. (The only one in this country, apart from other Powertec items)
What exactly is in this offer? Every function in these next two video. (No options needed, but weight plates aren't included). All major muscle groups are properly-worked without the options. They're for variety. Main picture at top of page shows a Leg Curl/Extension, an option. In picture 6 above, Rob Riches is using a Curl Machine (Biceps) Accessory, an option, and in a video lower down he's using a Leg Curl/Extension, not included. The options and prices are at bottom of page. Dimensions are in a picture up top. It's good for 1.88 m height. (6 feet 2 inches)
In the videos above, some of the best training exercises are demonstrated by Rob Riches, and then Lee Priest. Take the moves slower, with a half-dozen heavy reps per set, and build mass. Build power and leanness with more reps per set, less weight, shorter rests. Go down to 50-60% of your max lift weight, and with high reps and short breaks, get a powerful cardio pump. Or mix it on different days. A perfect way to mix cardio and strength. Check out the circuit on the Exercise Inventory tab above. This is real compound-exercise stuff, not floppy, cable-hung pec flyes. Just silent,bearings; and great grip and angle variety. Rows as well. (A real, gravity-driven pec flye is available as a removable add-on to the bench)
Improved over 15 years, the LeverGym has an integrated, quickly-detachable bench - it has wheels. With a sealed-bearing movement that provides for superb positioning with press exercises, it's super comfortable. (Close-up in picture 3) A lock-and-load option attachment at the front lets you add other devices, such as pec flye, dip, leg press and arm curl attachments. These are for exercise variety. The important stuff''s already taken care of. And they don't take up more space - your legs usually go there anyway! The rear cable unit leverage assures even resistance through the movement. Take the bench away and you're taking up very little space.
Now for something different: An 11-year-old video that aims to remove any doubt that this is solid kit. The machine's much better now too: Ivan Sadek - Man v Machine.
The LeverGym suits both beginners and advanced trainers. Beginners get to perform all the major exercises that will help build a foundation with complete safety. The machine will let them get in the right position for each exercise. The leverage format means they won't get trapped under a barbell. There's extraordinary grip variety and body fit. And just because the leverage principle gets you get so much done in a small space, it doesn't mean there is compromise. (As we said, legs training has a feature that's not easy to see...the squat design perfectly isolates the quads, and delivers excellent split squats or backward lunges, with the lever arm offering more stability over the dumbbell or barbell form of the exercises. More about squats, here)
