Weighing in at 182 lbs, this leverage lat machine by body solid is no joke. This machine is designed to stand up to years of rugged, commercial use. This machine is crafted of 2” x 3” 11 gauge (very thick) material. Leverage machines are much smoother to operate than conventional wire and pulley machines due to the weight plates being fixed to the handle the operator is using. This means the plates are not suspended by a wire virtually eliminating the restriction and friction of a pulley system. This leverage lat machine is engineered for correct biomechanical operation and comes with weight pegs for extra plate storage.
