The Flex Mini® vs. Powerline Glute Master

The Powerline Glute Master is a piece of free weight exercise equipment that is made to do exactly what its name suggests. This gym apparatus works mainly on helping the user strengthen and tone his or her buttocks, also known as the gluteal muscles. The apparatus features a kneepad and forearm pad. As the user kneels with one leg and leans forward, in a hands and knees type of position, he or she uses the other leg to push up on the apparatusí sliding track. This track has a place to put free weights in order to adjust the level of resistance. The motion of the userís leg strengthens the gluteal and upper leg muscles. The amount of resistance used and number of repetitions will determine results.

The Powerline Glute Master is currently sold by a vendor called BuySellFitness. They charge $328 for the device and include shipping costs in that price. There is no mention of a satisfaction guarantee posted here or any indication of international shipping beyond the U.S. and Canada. We also saw no information about bonus materials. Powerline covers its apparatuses with a 10 year warranty.
