4.0 out of 5 stars Good bench 2 Feb 2008
I bought this bench maybe 9 months ago,it wasnt too tough to build(took me a couple hours I think),I wanted a bench that would fold up so I could put it away when I was done,its got a weight limit of 200kg(including user)which is better than the 150kg you will find on alot of benches.I think you want a minimum of 200kg(however I've heard benches are tested to withstand more than double their suggested maximum before showing signs of fatigue),The leg extension has a 30kg limit which is alright but you will probably out grow as I have.

Mine has started to wobble abit,since it only has one support at the front as alot of benches do.When I use it outside I'm sometimes not on the most even of ground(like a sloping drive way) and it has tryed to tip over when I've been doing leg curls(my fault for putting it on grass).

over than the front end become slightly wobbly when you have 30kg on the end,its a sturdy bench.Perfect for bench pressing(obviously)and other exercises,I've bench pressed over 100kg on this bench without a creak from it(well maybe a little one).

It folds up very quickly you just have to undo a couple of bolts and put the bar through the back to hold it up(the first times I didnt do which caused it to fall over by itself later on) which all in all takes about 30 seconds and you're done.For the money you can't knock it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased 17 Dec 2008
I just bought this item today and to be honest its very good for the price! It only took about an hour to fully build. Also this product is very sturdy and can support a fair bit of weight without feeling like its going to collapse :). This is a great bench for beginners or someone that doesn't have much space as you can fold it away within 30 seconds. There is only one bad thing about this product and that is that when you are sitting on the bench the barbell is right in front of your face when the backrest is at its lowest. When you higher the backrest the bar is touching your nose and mouth which is not very nice :(. However, overall this item is very good for the price and does the job well.

I reccomend this bench for all ages and sizes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great bench for the price 10 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
Cracking, sturdy bench for the price as some inferior products out there for a similar price. Easy to assemble and quite compact when folded. The only slight drawbacks (hence four stars) are that the spanners provided for assembly are ever so slightly too large for the main nut type used so have your own spanner set handy if you have one as trying to get the right purchase on the bolts requires lots of patience. With the compact size of the bench it does mean that it is a little cramped with bench pressing. As a man of a modest 6ft I have to duck under the bar between sets but it's a minor issue. It's a shame also that the maximum weight load for the leg press is 35kg but again, it's not a major issue if you're looking to train at home with your own gear. Would recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product, save space , great price 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase
Price was great, assembling was really easy, amazing set of instructions, very useful, if you find a corner in your house you won't even notice the space it takes, and it's very realiable

the only problem is, the weight support for the legs exercise is not very big so you can't put much weight there since they won't fit

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad For the Price 16 Mar 2012
I'm mildly satisfied with this bench which I bought mainly because it fold up which it does easily and quickly. As stated by others, the bench is quite narrow and can feel a bit unstable so OK for a beginner but if you're going to be lifting heavy weights on this bench then I would advise going for something a bit wider and more stable.

I've had benches with leg curl/extension attachments before and been mostly disappointed by the lack of density in the roll pads, but this bench has pretty good roll pads and is pretty comfortable to use. Again, if you're a heavy lifter be aware that this is limited to 35kg which for leg extensions isn't all that heavy although would be adequate for beginners in the leg curl department.

Another gripe, as stated by others, is that the weight stands do not extend which means they are practically useless for anything other than flat bench presses. Of course, you can always do incline dumbbell presses instead, but I would've liked the option to afford the variation of using a barbell for incline presses.

I can see myself probably getting another bench in about six months as I'm certain I will outgrow this one. If, however, you're not looking to move onto heavier weights then this bench will suit that purpose.

I've given it 3 out of six in that it is well made, but lacking in several areas. Just being 6 inches wider, for example, would've made this bench a lot better, and extendable stands would've been a great addition.

So not bad for a beginners bench but you will soon outgrow it. The real benefit of this bench is that it folds away easily and for me, with space concerns, this was a must. Hopefully when I'm lifting heavier I can find a fold up bench with more of the things I want on it.

Despite the sound of my comments, this is still a good bench for the price.
