Summary: The STB-09-4 Herculean is a versatile weight bench from the popular V-Fit. This is more than just a bench, including a leg press, pec dec and lat pull. If you have weights already, you’ll get a lot of the functions of a home multi-gym without the price. This is not a top-end item, and is in the budget price bracket even before you take into account the amazon.co.uk discount (at the time of writing!). As an added extra, this bench folds up for easy storage. Check the picture gallery and latest discount for yourself now on the dedicated product page at amazon.co.uk
A versatile training bench, built for those serious about anaerobic and strength training – but do not want to break the bank to buy home equipment.
This model has a chip-resistant tubular steel frame and it is fully adjustable, even folding between uses. The vFit SBT 09 4 supports a variety of exercises including bench presses, leg extensions, crunches and situps, incline presses, butterflies and squats. The Herculean also features a preacher curl pad, a lat tower, walk-in squat stands and a pec deck giving you everything you need for a varied home-gym session. For me this is closer to a multi-gym than a simple bench!
Comfort and support is provided by a padded vinyl, cloth-covered seat, with a screen-printed V-Fit logo to give the bench a professional look. It can lay flat or be adjusted to 3 different incline angles to suit. For further added comfort the handles are fitted high density foam grips.
V-Fit make some great pieces of a exercise equipment. Price-wise this is high for a bench, though great value when you consider its multiple functions. The Herculean is sturdy and suitable for beginner and intermediate users, but if you’re a power use and you want to load more than 90kg on the barbell stands you need to look elsewhere (I’d recommend a Marcy bench)
Feedback from users has been generally good (considering the price range especially). Most people found it easy to put together, and while there are lots of parts, there are detailed instructions and all required tools are provided. People found the bench sturdy as described but some had issues with the front end, finding it a little unstable.
Overall this is a perfect bench for those just starting strength workouts or for people that want to take their gym workout home with them. You’ll have it setup in hours and the range of exercises this bench enables will allow you to work on new muscle groups each day.
