Body Lift- Pacific Fitness Corp.
I’ve moved to here: http://muddymommy.blogspot.com/2013/12/body-lift-from-pacific-fitness-corp.html
And also JUST made a facebook group to more easily share info on this machine here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/447329692087112/
I’ll update FB with pics and video’s of the machine before the weekend.
Today’s piece of equipment is from a company that is long gone. This machine is probably ancient. But, like anything ancient, it holds up well.
The Body Lift is a cable machine basically that uses multiples of body weight. If I got to 15 and could lift up myself, I’m sure I could add a plate to the base of the machine to increase total resistance. There is really no limit to the amount of resistance because weight can be added, but the weight added does not mean that there is an exact change of resistance to equal the weight. You might add 5 lbs but resistance might increase by 15 lbs. Or you might at 100 lbs and resistance might only increase by 20 lbs depending on what setting it’s on. Unfortunately I got this machine very very used and no manual was included. I don’t know what the numbers mean by percent of weight.
Excercises that you can do: Lat pull downs, wide grip, narrow grip, underhand/overhand/mixed grip.
Abdominal curls, seated rows, chest press with two different grips, horizontal or vertical, upright rows, abdominal twists, leg extension.
Above is really quite a narrow list. Anything you can do in a gym with a cable, you can do with this machine.
There are three different cable stations, high, chest height, and low. All the grips can be changed, the lat pull down bar can be put on any three places, the row bar, same deal. Any type of bar or grip attachment can be used in any three areas.
Only negative- you don’t know the exact amount of resistance.
Here’s the pics of this machine!
I wasn’t home at all yesterday really except a few minutes before heading out with my dad and same today. Just had about 45 min before leaving again for lunch with my BFF. If I can, I’ll catch up tonight with everyone and reply to comments here! Thanks for visiting :).
PS- doing good with my goals :). I’ve got to get my push ups in today but I was wating a bit to see if my back pain goes down so hopefully I can do them all.
