Assembly and Installation
Who Is This For
In addition to those exercises, if you set the UB300 bench with the back support in the lower decline position, you have a fantastic way to do your bench presses in a decline position for the development of your lower chest or to target the ab muscles with crunches and sit-ups done in this position.
The Final Word
The UB300 is a weight bench that lets you perform a huge range of exercises. It will not disappoint when it comes to performance and safety. It comes with the most sought after right features including a cushioned seat, a sleek and eye-catching design, and the higher user weight capacity of 250 pounds. It is backed by a two-year manufacturers warranty on the frame to make sure it serves you well for several years to come.
In some ways, the Nautilus Adjustable Weight Bench seems like a throwback with its no-nonsense appearance accentuated by the oversized upholstery and uber-solid profile. Yet if there is any way the UB300 is actually a throwback it is in the way the bench embraces the old fashioned values of a quality product at a fair price. The UB300 price is about half what comparable benches might set you back. Considering all the bench you get, along with the fact you can hook up to any Nautilus cage system to extend its usefulness even further.
