It’s been some time since my last power tower review, so I’ve decided to make another one. This time, I’ve taken a closer look at Lx Free Power Tower.
Power towers are great additions to personal home gyms, as well as public gyms. You can often find it in home gyms that don’t have power racks, although in public gyms you can find both, since power racks often miss dip station and in most cases, are far more expensive.
With that being said, let’s take a closer look at this fella.
Features of Lx Free Power Tower
As with most power towers, you can do a lot of exercises, like pull-ups, push-ups, dips, chin-ups and more. To my surprise, the power tower offers a rather big list of great features.
It’s made of heavy duty steel with padded arms rests and backpad. Just these two features can tell us that the tower is built to last and not to be replaced in a year or two. High density foam rubber grips (no- slip coated) ensure perfect safety during dips.
The pull-up station offers 4 stalls adjustable height: 74.8”- 88.6” (190 – 225 cm). The backpad is also cushioned, which effectively reduces the pressure on the spine.
Lx Free brand also offers 100% money back guarantee if you are not satisfied – but please note that this is something I have not testes personally. So let’s sum it up:
- Heavy Duty Steel Construction
- Np-Slip Coated Foam Rubbers Grips
- Padded Arms and Back
- Adjustable Height for Pull-Ups
- No-Questions-Asked Money Back Guarantee (Not Tested/Checked)
Packaging and Assembly
The packaging of Lx Free power tower was quite simple – one box and everything in it was tightly packed. Unfortunately, I forgot to check the box weight, but as a 155 lbs guy, I had no trouble moving it to the house.
The real surprise was the instructions – there weren’t any. Just one A4 diagram and that was it. Now I’m glad Lx Free brand manufactures fitness equipment and not parts for the international space stations. Despite the lack of instructions, the assembly was easy and I was able to put all together in about 20 minutes.
Time For Some Dips, Baby!
First I tried the dip station. The handles were really comfortable and easy to grasp. The construction proved to be really sturdy, it did not rock at all – although I’m only 155 lbs, so who knows what would happen if a 250 lbs guy used it.
Next, I tried some vertical crunches with my back on the backpad. The cushioned pad was quite comfortable on the back and the arm rests as well. Not much to add here.
The pull up bar, while sturdy, could be a bit longer on the angled edges. I, for one, could use a little bit more angled version, but it’s not a catastrophe, the main thing is the stability – which was very good.
Pros and Cons
Alright, let’s sum up the pros and cons of Lx Free power tower.
- Very Sturdy Construction
- Easy Assembly
- Comfortable, Cushioned Padded Arms Rests and Back
- Adjustable Height of the Pull-Up Bar
- No Assembly Instructions Whatsoever
- Pull-Up Bar Could be a Bit Longer
That’s it. Despite a few minor issues, I’d say the pros clearly outweigh the cons.
4.3 / 5
Would I recommend Lx Free Power Tower for Home Gym users? I certainly would. This power tower is a great addition to anyone’s home gym at a great price. If you miss a good dip station with high-quality cushioned pad for crunches and a pull-up bar, then you should definitely consider getting this fella.
