The First Gravity Release Bench Press Is (Nearly) Here


If you’ve ever lifted weights, you are certainly familiar with the infamous “getting stuck” moment, the ever so dull (and potentially very dangerous) situation when you go for that extra lift because you feel motivated, but your body just says “Nope, nope and nope.”

All of a sudden, your muscles give in, you can’t lift the weight any more and you mustn’t drop it because, well, you will drop 135 pounds of metal on your chest, and that can’t feel good.

Well, worry no more because a mechanical engineer/benching enthusiast we know only as Dave has come up with an ingenious solution. Meet the MAXX BENCH, a bench whose altitude you control with just a simple stomp of a lever. It’s safe, simple, effective, and for some reason not invented yet.

Dave’s design is still in the Kickstarter phase, but with $37.000 pledged already, we guess it won’t be long before it sees the light of day.
