Gold’s Gym XR 10.9 Power Tower via Amazon
Black and silver Gold’s Gym XR 10.9 Power Tower is great for a variety of exercises to work your triceps, shoulders, arms, chest and abs as it is 4 stations in one: Vertical knee raise (for achieving 6-pack abs- core and legs), push-up (with the padded hand grips), multi-grip pull-up (stronger, nicer and more conditioned arms with the narrow, wide and side-to-side grips) and dip station (chest, shoulder, triceps and enhanced upper body strength) in one and will help you get the definition you want by doing a great range of upper and lower body exercises, in regular use and with the right nutrition. Model number for this unit is #GGBE0969 on the manufacturer website. Gold’s Gym XR 10.9 weighs 99 pounds as a heavy duty unit and measures 57.5 x 41 x 84 inches when assembled and can carry a maximum weight of around 350 pounds. It is a sturdy and stable unit that does the job really well at a much less price than competitors- it is pretty much as decent and versatile as you can get for the cost. If you’d like it to not wobble and stay in balance you probably need to put it on a hard surface and not on your thick carpet.
It is quite simple and straightforward to set up especially if you have a socket set and when you’re putting it together, please tighten all the bolts equally but not too much and you should be ready to go within one or two hours at the most. It comes with a workout chart for simple regular exercises but is quite useful. One of the customers commented on the backrest for knee raises flexing a bit and they are concerned if it may cause problems down the track but although we don’t have the unit on hand, the reviews suggest that it is quite stable overall and there shouldn’t be any problems with the backrest. And for those that want harder workouts they may just want to add weight to their ankles or waist to make it more challenging with extra resistance.
