Great for weights, Not for sit-ups!, 9 July 2009
This is a great little bench for dumbell workouts. It has a lot of variable inclines and declines and is lightweight but sturdy enough at the same time. It was also very easy to put together myself.
Unfortunately, for me anyway at 5'10", when in position to do sit-ups my tailbone rests in the 2.5" space between the seat and the incline/decline part of the bench. This is incredibly uncomfortable and can only be relieved by "padding out" the space with towels. This was disappointing for me but at the price, and considering I bought it primarily for dumbell workouts, it was a good buy. If you're looking at this with a view to using it as a sit-up bench you may want to try it out in a shop for size first as I imagine many people will encounter the same problem I did in that regard. But for weights it's great!
