BENCH BLOKZ – THE EASIEST WAY TO BOARD PRESS ALONE
Ever wanted to do board presses while training alone at your gym? Maybe you’ve tried holding a board onto your stomach using an elastic band around you, and now you look like a fucking weirdo in the gym. People are thinking you’re even weirder than the time you brought 200 pounds of chain in a bucket and carted it around. Not to mention, having a band hold a board for your pressing doesn’t offer any stability and the board tends to dance around.
Well, guess what folks! There’s a solution to all this, and it’s in the form of Bench Blokz. This product attaches right into a barbell and once it’s fully wedged in, you can use it to board press all by yourself. It remains very stable while you’re pressing for reps, and doesn’t move around at all. In my opinion, its best feature is that you only need 1 Bench Blokz for 4 different board press heights. You simply wedge on the Bench Blokz from one of the attachment points, which are all set up to provide you a different board height. As someone who used to carry boards into my gym bag while training at a 24 Hour Fitness, this saves up SO much space and lets you travel lighter. The Bench Blokz is a huge convenience to have and saves you not only space, but even some money. If you decide to buy wooden boards from a retail powerlifting site (such as EliteFTS), you will inevitably spend more on the cost of the product (and shipping!) compared to simply buying a Bench Blokz.
To be perfectly honest, there’s no real downsides to using the product. We use Bench Blokz at CSA during times when we might be training solo or with only 1 person available to hand off for benching. It’s in use frequently and shows no sign of wear & tear so far. Note that the Bench Blokz comes as 2 different models: one that can be used for interchangeable heights, and the other is solely used for 1 board pressing.
