Body beast bench alternative????
Body beast bench alternative????
beast body beast weight bench
1/1/13 7:46 AM
I don't have a weight bench and I am not planning to buy a stability ball. Can I still do body beast workouts using the floor or a chair?? I am not willing to do it with a stability ball and weight bench would cause problems as I don't have any space. Can somebody suggest a good alternative to the bench so that I can do my workouts with good form and without any injury??

I guess you could put a board from from the floor to the edge of a chair, sit on the floor and lean back to create an incline. You will have a hard time doing Dumbbell Pullovers, Chest Press, Chest Flys without a bench. I highly recommend a bench...and stay away from the Stability Ball..hear of people getting hurt on those with Body Beast.

Before I got a bench, I used the Foam Roller for some of the moves and I also piled up a bunch of pillows to get me off the floor.

But you really need a bench...or a old beat up stable coffee table.

i've been using a stability ball and a chair when possible. i'm looking to get a bench but a $15 stability ball is still better than the floor or a board and a chair since having your feet firmly planted on the floor makes all the difference.

There are weight benches that fold flat. You could then put it in a closet or under the bed when not working out.

A bench is definitely the best, if you can't do that then I would definitely recommend spending a few bucks on a stability ball. You won't be able to go as heavy with a stability ball but you will get a better core workout.
