XMark XM-4428 is a state-of-the-art 45 degree ab and back hyperextension Roman chair that is designed for building and defining your abs, obliques and lower back so you can improve your flexibility, blood circulation and motion range and your stretching routine to give the best workout to your joints and muscles. It is created for home use- home gym or private studios rather than commercial / gym use. XMark is a Louisiana based company that makes great quality innovative fitness equipment with ergonomic designs for both home and gym use at very competitive prices.
Black XMark XM-4428 weighs 49 pounds and measures 40 x 29 x 10 inches. It includes very large 8 x 4 inch size contoured rollers, twelve adjustment levels to relax the back, tricep dip handles, angled rubber grip handlebars, 2.5 inch very dense mid section cushion that is very thick, dual stitched hence resistant to tear and sweat with Duraguard vinyl, very solid and durable heavy duty 14-gauge 2 x 3 inch rectangular steel frame with a baked powder coat finish that makes it resistant to scratch and a large base shaped like a horseshoe. It is a very nicely built unit that is easy to assemble and disassemble with only 7-8 bolts in total and you need to remove only half of those. You have to keep in mind that what you eat / nutrition is even more important than your workout routine so if you want to get quicker and long lasting results, you have to eat healthy foods and not just for a few weeks, you need to make it a habit.
It is a versatile unit that will give you some flexibility and is perfect for back exercises but if you want to work your abs it is not so much for doing sit-ups but you can just turn sideways and do lateral raises to hit the obliques and when you’re doing your back extensions your abs will be impacted nicely when you lift your body up high enough. But do be careful when you first start working out to avoid back injuries although it is something that can also help those with back problems and the lowest you can have the pads is at the level of your hips and not lower. It is quite a solid and sturdy unit that feels quite stable (does not wobble) and customers that weigh even 270 pounds seem to be using it without problems. It has an ergonomic design that makes it feel comfortable when working out, helps discomfort and fatigue and is designed to work on and strengthen your certain body parts.
