The Flex Mini® vs. Magnum Perfect Squat

The Magnim Perfect Squat is a heavy duty piece of exercise equipment that facilitates squat exercises. The metal frame apparatus basically enables users to do squats without a spotter since rather than use a free weight bar, which is risky to do when an individual is alone, the Magnim Perfect Squat uses a lever system and padded shoulder rests. The plate posts enable the user to customize his or her resistance levels. Weight plates are not included with the Magnim Perfect Squat.

For those who do not know, the squat is a basic weightlifting routine that primarily works the lower body. The Magnim Perfect Squat weighs three hundred pounds and is nearly six feet tall and five feet deep. It is sold through at least one online retailer, Unique Fitness Concepts. They charge $1,805 for the Magnim Perfect Squat. Shipping is offered only to United States customers and costs $150 no matter which state the customer resides in. They offer no bonus materials with the Magnim Perfect Squat other than two weight storage pegs and they cover the device with a 30 day return policy.
