tis only a vinyl set you get in the offer tho


True, but to be fair, 50kg is still 50kg no matter the material

EDIT: It's all right now.

If this can take 50kg of weights, that means by mid January it's going to be able to hold a lot of coats and other clothes!!! The only problem is that, being vinyl, the clothes will have a tendancy to slide off (_;)

Be aware of a few things when thinking about buying this bench;

1. It's quite lightweight and flimsy. Fine for anything light but if you want to move onto heavier stuff you have no confidence whatsoever that it isn't just going to snap in half/fall over.

2. It's tiny. If you're anywhere near 6 foot you won't fit on it.

3. If you want to bench press you can't have the fly things on, otherwise they hit your elbows and arms.

4. The leg apparatus is hopeless.

My advice is just to buy a proper bench and barbell/dumbell set. Wouldn't be much more expensive and you'd have much better stuff.

Yeah I saw that on the low end reviews. I guess you do get what you pay for.
#16
Well I don't own one personally, but a friend does, so I had a quick go on his.

If it was on sale at £5 I still wouldn't buy it. I felt very very unsafe on it.
#17
i'm not going to pretend to be a professional, but this bench is actually pretty dangerous.

add 15quid more and get yourself a better quality one, you wont regret it.

Better to be safe than sorry, some good comments above for those who think price is all that matters

lol join a gym ffs. either that or invest in something better
#21
Used to cost around 70 so not that much of a discount. As previously mentioned, you can either do flyes (with a really low weight) or bench press. Furthermore, when bench pressing and putting the weight back to the rack you have to be careful not to cut your hands on the protruding metal plates that secure the barbell into the rack.
#22
If it's just a deal you are after then this is good. But if you are really looking at getting into weight training then this isn't for you. It's probably perfect for people with money to burn who are going to make new years resolutions about losing weight but never actually stick with it long enough to see any results.

Most people looking to start getting into shape don't even need to lift weights, a pull up bar would be a good buy so you could get yourself doing all the main bodyweight exercises. I've seen plenty of people get reasonably strong just doing press ups, squats and pull ups and the more advanced versions of each.
#23
Presses and flyes would be safer on a 300kg+ rated exercise ball than on this thing.

Perhaps this is for those first starting off and cannot afford to join a gym, my advice to you is to stop tensing and taking pictures of yourself which show a minute amount of muscle, dont try to find an angle which makes you look slightler bigger that you are.
#29
Cold, would be better to use the £50 quid to pay for a month or two at a gym as anyone will quickly find themselves benching more than 50kg. Also vinyl weights are very bulky and so it is difficult to hold a decent amount of weight on the bar. This bench is also very flimsy. Just not worth it overall, as you will only be buying a new one after a couple of months.

As a couple of others said, if you're at all serious about lifting weights something like this is almost useless, they are very cheaply made, vinyl weights are horrible, and i think my 12 year old brother could bench 50kg. You will get bored of it very quickly and realise its not suitable, then it will be taking up space and a waste of money.

Really the best option is a gym membership, if this doesn't suit you because of your schedule or whatever, then i'd recommend buying the below to work out at home (if you have the space)

Good strong Bench
Olympic bar
Dumbells
Squat rack and/or power rack
Assortment of Olympic weights totalling say 150-200KG

Again this isn't a 'oh look at me, i workout post' just giving advice, to stop people making the same mistake as many do.

Great Deal, voted hot.


"Was simple enough to put together, though overall quality once constructed was very POOR!!
A few nuts and bolts don't line up properly but the main problem was around the seat.
It looks very poorly manufactured, 1 of the screws had been rounded off meaning I had to grip the edges with pliers and replace the screw with 1 of my own as no spares were provided.
Since doing this, within about 10 minutes of using the bench, the seat was coming loose and wobbling around!
NOT GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY...... but then I suppose I should have realized with how cheap I paid for it!!
Also, I WOULDN'T recommend this to an adult. Size wise would perhaps suit an average sized teenager but not much more.
And I also don't use the fly or leg extensions, I just leave them off. They just get in the way!
You're probably better off spending a few quid more on a better quality and better branded bench!
Therefore I have ordered one if any one wants this with weights please pm to me now i have decided to cancel it and not gona pick it up!!!

I agree with rmax1, although he's a bit of a muscle head, he's right on this occasion.
#36
I'm looking to build a home-gym, as I don't have time to drive all the way there now after work.

This looks very poor quality compared to the York bench, which I've seen for around £80 inc. postage. Then again, I'll be lifting pretty heavy weights - this Pro Power one might be perfect for someone skinny / with a smaller frame.

I actually have this bench and Ive owned it for quite some time. It's a brilliant piece of kit and it will take alot of weight!!!

They can't sell a bench that only takes 50kg of weight can they? There are lots of safety issues with that and things like these have to be tested before going on general sale.

Obviously, if your 6'3 and weigh 13.5 stone like Eez1 who is clearly too special for this then I would avoid it.

However, anyone around 10, 11, 12 stone etc can use this fine, without worrying about it falling apart beneath you!

If it does collapse, I take no responsibility for any injury caused!!! (had to get that in there, claims culture and all that!)

does that come with 50kg weight tho?
#39
Both for £55 is good value, very good value. Fantastic value for a beginner. Almost tempted to get a set of the 50kg weights for home but the DB limit in terms of weight is a bit low. Ok for wide and close grip BB curling.

Asda have some DB sets for £10 each at the mo that are steel, i'd go for them myself (in store only as far as I can see).

Not sure if it's just me but this is now out of stock and when you select to collect from store the price goes back up to around £85? I think this deal may be online only
