Akonza Lat Machine Review

Working out at home is a great strategy for anyone who is too busy to get to the gym consistently. You don’t really need all that much equipment, as most body parts can be worked well with a simple pair of adjustable dumbbells. The back is the one body part that is a bit harder to target at home. A machine that focuses on the back is a great idea for any home gym.

That is why the Akonza lat machine is next up for review. This is a lat pull down machine designed for the home gym that has both a high and low pulley. It is available on with free delivery for Prime Members.

1) This machine is very well built: I have had mine for over 3 years and it looks and works like it did when it was brand new.

2) Not too tall: This is important as some of the machines I looked at were too big for my basement. The Akonza Lat pull down machine is 6 feet, 4.5 inches tall and will fit in most any room in your home.

3) Inexpensive: Currently this machine is on sale at at the very attractive price of $149.97, which includes shipping for Prime Members.

4) Versatile: The machine comes with both a high and low pulley and two attachments. This allows you to add a bunch of exercises for your back, triceps, shoulders and biceps. You can do even more if you add other attachments, which are quite inexpensive.

5) You can put it together by yourself. The directions were not at all complicated, it just took a little time.

1) The seat is a bit on the small side. This is not a major problem, it just could have been a little bigger.

2) When using the lower pulley for upright rows or bicep curls, the machine is not quite stable and seems like it could tilt backward. This is easily fixed by simply putting one foot on the base of the machine during the upward phase of the exercise. Admittedly, the machine is not designed for these types of exercises, I just like to do them. When using the high and low pulley as intended, the machine is completely stable. 

Do I Recommend the Akonza Lat Machine?
Absolutely. This little gem will turn your basement weight room into a bona fide home gym. The price is right, it is versatile and is built very well. If you are busy, working out at home is critical to working out consistently. Adding just a few pieces of equipment, such as this lat machine, will allow you to replicate the gym experience in the comfort of your own home.
