From Out of the box to fully assembled, 2 hours. I am not the best guy at following diagrams but this was fairly easy. Make sure you have a Socket set handy, you will greatly reduce your assembly time.
Ok so...I bought this bench because of the price and the fact that it handles an Olympic size bar with a 300+ lb capacity.
However, The leg developer cannot load enough weight plates for my satisfaction. If you're used to leg extending 200+ lbs, dont buy this bench.
The preacher curl stand is a Joke. Im not sure who designed this thing...but it doesnt permit for a good range of motion.
The cradle notch, which would hold the bar or dumbell you're curling, sits right in the front and too high up. So your range of motion is impeded...restricting the workout greatly.
You can however use the edge of the preachers pad...being careful not to bang the dumbell into the cradle/notch...but its distracting. Not exactly Gym quality by any means.
The squat catch worked fine and was able to withstand the 300 lb barbell without wobbling.
This is what i bought the bench for, squat catch and bench press. All the other extras are sub-par but it doesnt matter...because i didnt buy it for that.
All in all, a good, solid olympic bench for $100. If you are looking for a home gym, you will be dissapointed.
If you are purchasing this strictly for bench pressing and a squat catch, you'll like it. A full body workout? No...go to a gym or invest in another bench/machine.
