Squeaky glide board

Yes indeed.
I have an XLS and it started squeaking, but the glide board is not the source of the squeak on my total gym, to check this try the following, put board to its highest setting then sit on the top of the board facing the machine with your legs over the end. Sit upright so you can see the columb as you pull on the handles.

On my machine as the handles are pulled it causes the chrome arms that that the pulleys are attached to, to flex slightly towards you. This part is lined with a plastic inner piece that
squeaks as the outer flexes.
Its a minor design problem, to fix this you need to stop the flexing. This can be achieved cheaply by a carefully cut piece of wood, functional but doesn't look too flash, or a nicely shaped metal plate painted black or chromed (your choice) drilled onto the face of the chromed slider will do the job, do not do this yourself unless you have some engineering or metalworking skills. Try a block of wood first to verify if that is the problem with your machine.
Keep the tracks clean, a light coat of silicon spray on them and the wheels and bearings also worth trying. If the squeak is from the actual bearings replace with new ones from Hucks.
Good Luck

Need assembly / disassembly instructions for this machine, Body Solid Power Rack with Lat

We have a weight machine similar to this . Start the disassembly from the top down. Most of the bolts are the same. You may want to mark each spot where the bolt and nut goes. This just takes time.

I bought a system, the total trainer II second hand but did not get any paper work with it. How can I find some??? Thanks, Kathy Excited to start.

This isn't an exact match for you machine but all the basic concepts should be the same.


I like these type of machines but if your new to them be sure to keep you hair tied back out of the
way. Watch not to put your toes of fingers around any of the wheels or tracks and DON"T let
your kids play on this machine.

Looking for a manual for a ab and back plus body by jake

You can use the Body by Jake Ab and Back Plus to target and tone your frontal abdominal muscles, waist and rear obliques and to strengthen the muscles in your lower back. The exerciser comes with torsion disks that allow you to vary the level of resistance. Use one disk if you're a beginner, two disks for an intermediate level workout and three disks for an advanced workout. There are only four exercises to do, known as the "Fit Four." With consistent workouts you'll begin to see results and feel stronger in your core.

Step 1

Align the arrow on the handle bar with the arrow marked "Ab" on the exerciser and place a disk in the hex shaft.

Step 2

Seat yourself comfortably and place both your feet under the ankle pads.

Step 3

Do the Abdominal Crunch. With your elbows at your side, grip the handles, curl your body forward in a controlled manner and then return to the starting position to complete one repetition. Contract your abdominal muscles when curling forward, making sure the movement comes from your abdominal muscles and not your arms. Do 15 to 30 repetitions.

Step 4

Do the Side Twist. Bend your legs, raise your feet and cross your ankles in the seated position. Hold the handle bars firmly and swing your lower body from the right side to the left, making sure you move using your oblique muscles. Your upper body should be kept as stable as possible. Movement from right to left completes one repetition. Do 15 to 30.

Step 5

Do the Oblique Crunch. Position your seat slightly to the left. Place your feet in the left ankle support pad. Put your knees together, grip the handles with both hands and curl forward slowly. Return to the starting position and repeat 15 to 30 times. Now angle your seat slightly to the right, place your feet under the right ankle support pad and repeat the exercises for your other side.

Step 6

Do the Back Extension. Remove the torsion disk and align the arrow on the handlebar with the arrow marked "Back" on the exerciser. Place a torsion disk back on the hex shaft. Sit comfortably in the seat with your hands gripping the handles and your feet under the ankle support pads. Ensuring your back is pressed against the upper pad, lean back slowly and then return to the starting position to complete one repetition. Repeat 15 to 30 times.

Step 7

Perform the exercises in the following order to complete one circuit: Abdominal Crunch, Side Twist, Oblique Crunch and Back Extension. Once you have completed one circuit, do another circuit from the beginning.

Step 8

Work out for 10 minutes at least three times a week. As you become stronger in your core and can comfortably complete 30 repetitions of each exercise, add another resistance disk.

Tips and Warnings

  • Before you begin exercising, warm up and stretch for five to 10 minutes. To gain maximum benefits, don't rest between exercises.

  • Ensure the torsion disks are placed correctly on the hex shaft; the slot on the torsion disk should be aligned with the round rod. Consult your health care provider before starting any exercise program to prevent the risk of injury.

Got cables connected on gym but number one weight is still not sitting of top of the oher weights it up a lil bit on body solid home gym 1500s

If the top plate is just hovering and you cannot adjust it out. For a while you may have to push the top plate down and engage the selector pin and with use the cable will stretch on its own with usage. Since these are a series of cables it would be difficult to pinpoint which cable is causing this problem. If you want to remedy this call Body Solid and have them send you a new set of cables.

How can i adjust the resistance other than from the console. It will not adjust from a very high setting...the console shoes number 1, but it will not adjust no matter what i press. Thanks

unplug the unit for more than an 1 hour then pung back in. this may help reset the magnetic motor. If not you need to replace batteries in the computer as well and let sit for hour before putting battiers back in. This may do it. If not you will needto have the magnetic motor replaced
