The Cap Barbell Fitness FID Bench – Fully Adjustable & Easy to Use
The Cap FID Bench is a strong but lightweight fully adjustable fitness bench. It uses a lightweight aluminum two inch by one inch frame that is strong enough for most people; but it is capped out at a maximum of 250 pounds for a user.
This barbell bench is completely adjustable to four different positions; you can use this fully upright or flat, along with an incline and decline position to vary the intensity of the workout.
And because of its adjustability, it has the possibility of providing you with a variety of upper body and abs exercises.
You can do dumbbell presses, shoulder presses, chest flies, biceps curls and more. Lay this bench completely flat and you can also do lying leg raises; made easier by the handy foam padded handgrips that provide extra comfort while doing so.
It has front mounted padded rollers to anchor the feet when doing your crunches and sit ups, and the full decline position also adds extra intensity to your sit ups as well.
The bench is fully vinyl covered with a 2 inch foam pad that is comfortable in any position; and the front and back bases of the Cap FID Bench are both wide enough so that this is a very stable exercise bench… Even with heavier weights.
And the included barbell holder underneath the bench makes it easy to access a full array of barbells and dumbbells as well.
The Cap Barbell Fitness Bench is also a space saver; ideal for those smaller apartments that don’t have a lot of extra room to workout in. It measures in at 48 inches by 27 inches by 41 inches, so it can be set up anywhere. And at only 25 pounds, it is a breeze to move around as well.
Last but not least, it is very easy to store due to its foldable design. It folds down to a very compact size that can be stored in any closet or even under the bed.
Cap Barbell Fitness FID Bench – Our Complaints
The Cap Barbell Fitness FID Bench is great as a multi position exercise bench that gives you a lot of options; but it does have its limitations.
Like a lot of ab boards, if you are taller than around five foot ten, you will have your head hanging over the end of this bench. This is not a big deal, but it can be uncomfortable on the neck for some people.
And with a weight limit of 250 pounds, this may not be for more advanced users; they may want to spend a little more money and get a longer board with a higher degree of decline.
But if you are just starting out and want a versatile bench that is solid, well constructed and gives you plenty of exercise options, then the Cap Barbell Fitness FID Bench may be the answer.
It is a rock solid abs bench, comfortable when in use, and with the four different adjustable positions, you can really extend your exercise options with this board.
Just because the Cap FID Bench is less expensive than some of its competitors doesn’t mean that it cannot compete with them. Just the opposite; for the money, the CAP Barbell Fitness Bench is a great value or the money you spend on it.
