Default ultimate body press dip stand review.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...SIN=B000ICHPIK

$79.99







Just put together our new dip stand from Ultimate Body Press. We first saw it on BODYROCK.tv | Fitness Advice, Workout Videos, Health & Fitness | Bodyrock.tv and wanted to give it a try.

The whole setup clicks together with the push button tabs, you match the colored dots on each piece orange to orange, blue to blue, red to red, push each piece into place until it snaps/clips into place and you're good to go.

Once setup, I thought the dip stand felt very unstable and wobbled a lot, however once you set it on the floor and put some weight on it, it's VERY solid. Feels great.

As far as storing it goes, I was hoping you would push something and have the whole thing collapse, but that's not the case. You need to push the lower 2 tabs in and split the whole stand in half, then you need to push another 2 tabs in and twist the pieces to straighten them out. Not too much work, but if you want to use it 3-4 times a week, it will most likely be left whole and in the way.

Over all I think it's a good buy, I just wish it would collapse in a way that took 2 seconds. Think, walkers for older people. I love how those collapse. One button and boom it folds up.

I have not since I have a cable system and a smith machine. However I've seen it done in the BODYROCK.tv | Fitness Advice, Workout Videos, Health & Fitness | Bodyrock.tv videos.
