For Sale: Trojan Sit Up 100 Bench – R200 For Sale 27 MAY 2010

* Please note that this is an old post – the bench was sold within a couple of days of posting this, i.e. it was gone by June 2010 already! *

I currently have a second-hand Trojan Sit Up 100 bench up for sale, going for a pretty low R200 (negotiable).

This sit up bench allows for a maximum user weight of 100 kg and is ideal for all of those keen on doing a variety of sit ups and other stomach exercises in order to firm up that tummy in the privacy of their own home!

(Also, it doubles as a pretty inexpensive inclined bench against which to do incline bench presses if you are keen on working on those pecks, arms and shoulders!)

It is pretty lightweight, of a decent build quality, has nice spongy cushions for your knees and ankles, a padded surface for your back and features adjustable leg positions meaning that you can change the incline height whenever you want to.

The bench folds up and can be stored in an upright or horizontal position, meaning it can happily be packed away behind the door, under the bed or even in a broom cupboard when not in use.

The reason for selling is pretty simple. Firstly, we have our first child on the way and thus now need to make some space in our small flat for the baby room. Secondly, I have since exceeded the maximum weight limit since purchasing the bench a year or two ago, rendering it pretty much useless to me for sit ups! :)

So in other words, a great little exercise helper that makes a good addition to any home gym collection, is in excellent condition, and is going for a tasty low price of R200!

Microwave Ovens and Sit-ups My Life 14 AUG 2007

I’ll confess: I still haven’t got around to replacing my microwave oven yet. It would seem as if I just don’t spend enough time at home to miss it yet. But I have now found a new model which I favour above the earlier mentioned LG machine I was looking at. Its a Samsung model that boasts a 28L capacity with 1000w power output, together with a pretty decent grill system. The inside of the microwave is a rather ugly looking bluish ceramic coating (not nice on the eye at all), but apparently its pretty easy to clean. The only problem (as always) is that the damn Tygervalley Game is out of stock of this one (again). *sigh* Oh well, guess I only really need it once Chantelle moves up to Gordon’s Bay in any case.

I did however manage to lay my hands on a lightweight sit-up bench instead though. I was initially looking at a small weight bench for the flat, but to be honest, most of those things are too bulky and difficult to move around for my purposes, so I settled on getting a small Trojan incline sit-up bench instead. It weighs about 7 kilograms and folds up for easy storage. It is also going to double up for me as a incline bench for shoulder and chest presses, so for R300 I think I got my money’s worth :) (Plus I got the manly satisfaction that comes from assembling it myself – it hasn’t collapsed on me thus far).

But, my small sets of excited sit-ups on my new bench were cancelled out last night, when upon arrival at the guesthouse, I discovered that Chantelle had baked a cake. And not just any cake. Her cakes are the type that you buy at coffee and cake cafs, and this one was topped with a decadent mixture of pure chocolate and caramel. Blissful heaven. Guess Ill be doing some more sit-ups when I get home then tonight :)
