Default Has anyone used this?

Please take a look at the following link:

45 degree backextension

I am really interested in this. I like that it serves 2 functions; Chest supported row and 45 degree back extension with the ability to add resistance to your extensions.

Has anyone had a chance to use this piece of equipment or any piece of equipment from this company?

Is there a company on the East Coast / Mid-Atlantic region who makes something just like this?

The shipping from Texas to Virginia costs just as much as the piece of equipment. I am having trouble with that; so expensive. Thanks.

No but you could save a but load of money and buy a hyper extension (I got mine at wally world for like $80) and do chest supported rows on your bench bro.

I've never used it. I would love to try it out. I can't do bench supported rows on my bench very well because there is an adjustment knob that keeps getting in the way.

I have a t-bar station similar to that. the only downside is that the leverage isn't as natural as I would like. I wish I could adjust the foot position angle. That doesn't appear to be an issue with this though.

Don't get me wrong if $500 was chump change to me I would buy it. $500 isn't easy to come by so if I had the money I would but other equipment. Its a nice piece but not essential to me.

I can relate to everything you said. When I set up my bench on an incline the bar gets hung up underneath. I bought a t-bar row attachment from New York Barbells that worked with my power rack but I had a difficult time getting a comfortable back angle. When I finally got a good back position I ended up smashing the bar into my groin!
This looks like a serious piece of equipment. I find that SLDL and DL in the same week a bit much. I would love to be able to do 45 degree back extensions and chest supported t-rows in my basement. If I rent a truck and drive one hour to the freight depot the shipping is $300. To have it dropped in my driveway the cost is $505. I have until midnight to order at the current sale price.

Just a thought but instead of using a BB use DB's then the bar won't get in the way. Just sounds like an expensive piece of equipment for just a couple exercises.
