A flat bench is used in many strength exercises. The bench allows you to stand, sit or lie in the right position to perform many different exercises. Some benches are flat, while others are adjustable in height.
This equipment is used for performing exercises with other equipment on the bench. You can use it while laying flat for bench press or sitting up straight for shoulder press.
There is no resistance used from the equipment. However, you will be using other equipment that will require other types of resistance.
