Make the Most Out of Your Workout With the Hoist HF 5165

Those looking to buy fitness equipment that they can use on an everyday basis without taking up a whole wing of their home may want to check out the Hoist HF 5165 7-Position FID Bench

When combined with other kinds of small pieces of sports fitness equipment, this bench can help you with a huge array of strength, fitness, and agility workouts. 

Let us dive into what you can do to get the most out of your workout with the Hoist HF 5165, regardless of your level of fitness. 

Using Dumbells With the Hoist HF 5165

Assuming that if you’re into fitness or you’re looking to get into a more fit lifestyle, there’s a huge chance that you have or will end up buying a set of dumbells (and if you get a great set, we also recommend you get the Hoist HF 4460 8-Pair Verticle Dumbbell Rack). 

With those dumbells, there is a wide variety of exercises you can just jump right into. These include things like classic curls to butterfly raises and all sorts of stuff in between. 

One of our favorite workouts that you can do with the Hoist HF 5165 and a set of dumbbells is to put the bench at a slight incline (about a 30-degree angle from the ground) and do chest presses at a 90-degree angle from your body. 

It does not only work out your chest and triceps in a way that is similar to regular barbell bench presses, but it also helps target your shoulders and upper back since those are used to fight against the gravity from being on the incline. 

The best thing about this particular exercise is that the resistance by only slightly increasing the weight of your dumbbells is tremendous. This means you don’t actually have to buy a huge set of weights just to get more out of your workouts. 

Using the Hoist HF 5165 Without Additional Equipment

While the majority of the exercises you do on the Hoist HF 5165 will mean having additional equipment from a fitness equipment store, there are also some excellent exercises available to those who want to use their own body weight as the primary tool for the workout. 

The Hoist HF 5165 features leg holders under the seat of the bench. With these leg holders in place, you can push the bench back as far as it can go and do decline situps. 

One thing a lot of people might not realize they can do with their Hoist HF 5165 FID Bench is that you can do much, much more with it than what is intuitively available like situps and dumbbell work. In fact, you can even do some work toward your cardio goals if you are willing to put your feet up on the seat and bench. 

If you would like to try out the Hoist HF 5165 for yourself, and see just how high-quality this fairly affordable sports fitness equipment is, head on down to the Jackson, MS, Fitness Expo store (or any of our locations in Mississippi or Louisiana and talk with one of our trained and experienced fitness consultation experts to give it a try. 

Likewise, if you have any specific concerns or would like to learn how to get the most out of your Hoist HF 5165 for your personal needs, our staff will be happy to help you determine what exercises are going to best fit your fitness, strength, agility, and cardio goals.
