Marcy Roman Chair review by Stephen:
I’m over 65 and been weight training most of my life. Not only is this a quality piece of equipment it is an amazing buy, especially if you take advantage of Amazon.Com’s Super Saver Shipping Offer. Assembly was a piece of cake, all parts are well finished and fit together nicely. The Marcy Roman Chair is made by IMPEX, makers of Marcy, Apex, Iron Grip and probably half dozen other lines of weight lifting equipment. An added benefit is that they have a great webb site with catolgues, parts, weight training advice and a customer service line. I was able to replace the cheesey foam rolls on the machine with better quality ones. I weight 200lbs and am 6ft tall. The bench is solid when I do both back extensions and crunchies, even with an extra 45lbs of weight. I highly recommend this product. I would like to see a power cage as reasonably priced and finely made.
Marcy Roman Chair review by KM:
I really like this piece of equipment. The instructions for setup were easy to follow and assembly was simple. There were no damaged pieces. It is very sturdy and looks like it will last for years. I get a great workout of my abdominal muscles – I think its easier than doing situps because your legs are held in place by the supports, plus you are working out more muscles by hyperextending the abdominals. I don’t use the Marcy Roman Chair much for extending the back but is similarly easy to use. The first time I used it my torso was sore for a few days, now I am using it almost every day and seeing results in just a few weeks. Its not too big and have room to leave it in a corner of my bedroom so I can use it quickly in the morning or evening.
