the arms are a little low and spaced a little close together, but it is a very sturdy bench, and the safety catch for the benching bar is a nice feature.
The feet are my only concern on this product. The company could have done a better job for stability. It does the job it needs to do.
I was on a budget and needed something affordable,this bench met my expectations...
Very good price for this weight lifting bench. Only problem I have 32 inch inseam and my feet cannot be planted flat on the floor. I must place a board under my feet 1&1/2 inches thick to accomplish placing my feet flat on the floor. This bench is not for heavy bench pressing. Max weight capacity is 350lbs. I weigh 200lbs so the max I can put on the bar is 150lbs. But over all very well designed bench. I am happy with my purchase.
I am 5'10 this bench fits me perfectly. In my spare bedroom it is very stable. I use light weights, but I always feel safe that it can support me.
First off I ordered this one because another reviewer stated it is good for short people. Unfortunately,
I am 5 ft so it is still too tall for me and I'll have to get a couple of 4 to 5 inch platforms to touch the floor flat footed. The instructions state you need two people to assemble, but I was able to do it quite easily alone. Feels sturdier than my previous bench.
Nothing spectacular about this weight bench. It's about average I guess. On the plus side, all of the parts were there and it was easy to put together. No written directions, but pictures step by step. My husband says it's a little unsteady, not so much that it seems like it's going to fall over, but if the barbell wasn't centered, it could. The feet are not that sturdy, maybe because we have it on a mat. He's thinking about building his own supports for stability. Also the barbell supports are a little close together (still usable), and the bench is a little bit to low which causes your feet to hit the floor when doing leg extensions. All in all my husband says for the money it is still an okay weight bench.
First the positives: You can have the bench flat or on an incline plus you can do leg lifts with it.
The negatives: It takes two people to put this together and a lot of patience. I do wish it came semi-assembled. You can't keeps your hands wide apart when you bench press. I rate this bench 2 1/2 stars. They don't have any half stars to choose above which is why you see only two marked.
I am sure if I used a small bar with little weights it would have been fine. But with a 7' bar loaded with 315 pounds it was a very unstable bench that made you feel like you were leaning to one side or the other. And the leg extension didn't work with my 2" weights.
Bench is OK for the price. Was not expecting a gym quality piece of equipment but it serves my purposes. Bench is a little too high off the floor level for shorter people. Can't put feet flat on the floor while lying on the bench.
