The Everlast EV120 starter weight bench provides a variety of different attachments, to compliment the exercises you can perform using the weights bench on its own.

Design features

Everlast EV120 Starter Weight Bench with Lat Pulldown

Being the entry level weight bench in the Everlast ‘EV’ range, the EV120 provides you with many of the same features as the higher priced EV440, but with some key differences.

With the lat pulldown attachment connecting to the leg developer, this helps make lifting the bar into place a bit easier without having the cable attached to an independent set of weight plate pegs.

Compared to the EV440 model, the Everlast EV120 also features angled ends to the lat pulldown bar, which can be useful for getting a better contraction in your back muscles.

The only real downside for the lat pulldown is that the resistance isn’t as constant and the range of motion not as great as on the EV440. This is due to the connection to the leg developer rather than an independent sliding weight.

Although changing the back support bar position takes a little longer due to the Everlast EV120 having holes to thread it through, you can still workout using incline, flat, and decline positions.

The main benefit over the EV440 design is the addition of the pec fly attachment. Having the option to perform pec flys enables you to focus training more on the inner chest.

This is a perfect exercise for the end of your workouts when your triceps and shoulders may be exhausted but you still have strength in your chest.

Price comparison with similar benches

Everlast EV120 Starter Weight Bench with Lat Pulldown

Usually retailing for around £125, the Everlast EV120 represents excellent value for money when it comes to the number of possible exercises it supports.

If you are looking to buy a weights bench for around this price range, it can be useful to know what other benches are available to be sure you are making the best decision.

The Bodymax CF342 (£120 approx.) and the V-fit STB-09-4 (£120 approx.) are very close in terms of price, but much more lacking in terms of the exercises and attachments available.

The V-fit bench does have the benefit of providing a walk-in rear squat rack and features all the same attachments as the Everlast EV120, but lacks the decline bench position and attachment storage area.

You can also only have a maximum of 2 attachments in use at one time, compared to having 3 setup for the Everlast bench.

In contrast, the Bodymax bench does have the leg developer, but is missing the preacher curl and pec fly attachments. It does however have the benefit of being a folding bench design, with adjustments to the barbell support height possible.
