Taken from the product page:

"This Tesco Value sit up bench weighs 22kg and has a maximum user weight of 100kg. Packed flat for home assembly."

"[COLOR="Blue"]Sit up[/COLOR] bench"?

Hope they haven't mixed up their product descriptions & those who have ordered a Weight Bench end up with something different.

BFN,

100kg max body weight? yikes i wouldnt trust this.. i was guna say as far as i cud throw it but it sounds flimsy as! 35 quid is far too cheap for a piece of gym equipment to be of any quality.

Problem is , it isnt an ornament and should you decide to use this then do so at your own risk. If i was to lie flat on that and do a dumbell press with my dumbells (each weighing 32kg) It would probably colapse.

For those that want to lift very light weights then i guess it may pass as being usable ??
#7
this would fall apart with any serious amount of weight on it. probably good for light weights
#8
I have this. I'm an absolute beginner and frankly quite weedy. For me right now, and quite probably the next few years, it should be fine.

You are awesome. in fact, rooney10, you are my new hero

All hail Rooney10 for he can press 64kg. no-one is impressed. congrats
#10
Again another vote for this being too flimsy/poinltess. lol at the guy pointing out the '32kg' press, as if the 2 makes the difference.

Our gym has 70kg dumbells, - would love to see those being used with this bench.

If you want to do it as safely as possible even without spotters GET A SMITH MACHINE rather than a dubiously specced Tesco toy.

Lets you lift weights until rep max when your mates are too lazy to train.

Anyone even mildly considering this wouldnt be lifting that weight on it, as those who do they would already have the experience to know its not up to it, and would likely already have training in place to have reached that stage of lifting.

I think you're trying to show off. Am i right? If so, get this - I bet my belly is bigger than yours :thumbsup:
#13
I certainly didn't get the impression anyone here was trying to show off, I think the point was being made that this would probably end up killing some of us who are lifting the slightly heavier weights (no I'm not willy waving here its just a fact as I've lifted for about 3 years).

I had a cheapo £30 York bench when I first started and even then it didn't feel safe on the lightest of weights and in retrospect I should have invested a little more in the bench and less on DVD's at the time :roll: as it hindered my progress.
#14
I use a 50 quid argos job similar to this(york i think), and its fine (has taken a right battering over the years).
It says max weight 150kgs (including user weight) on mine , and i put way more than that on it (i weigh around 85 kgs and bench up to 140kgs , so 225 kgs) .
It will be over engineered any way.
just remove the little cross bar and use as a bench , the main bar looks very strong.
for the price its a great deal, i may order one as my current one the padding is coming out and is teared up.

edit: just noticed it is wider than the york one i use , so will not be as strong but it should still be ok for most people

sure he was. why else would he mention the exact weight? oh its because he wants to sound like a tough man. he could have explained the point by using general presumptions instead of specific examples of how big and strong he is.

are you kidding, you'd never get 140kgs on that bar without it bending in two.
#18
Voted hot for the price, good for beginers or casual sessions.
However, with a max weight of 100kg, im guessing that this includes the weight you will be lifting as well, which doesnt allow you to lift much at all - probably why it only comes with 22kg of weights.

While all the 'willy waving' antics and digs were mildly amusing, I've got a serious question, hope someone here could help.

I just started doing bench presses lying on the floor. While not ideal, it means there are no sturdiness worries lol. Without a spotter and no stand, I can only safely lift relatively light amounts as once the reps are over, I have to get up while still holding the bar :/ So anyone know a decent bar stand, that I can simply lower the barbell onto once finished, then duck under to get up??

how about making two platforms out of something either side of yourself aligned with your head so that when you finish you move the bar over your head and rest the weights on the platform, then slide out!

a few precariously balanced tins of beans would do the trick.

I'm not sure he was showing off, as I'm sure most people could bench 64kg after a couple of weeks.
Think people trying to take the mickey probably don't understand or are jealous ;)

Eh? Surely your range of movement is massively limited? I.e bar must be a good 6-10 inches off your chest when your elbows hit the floor? I'd say a better idea is to buy some push up handles, if your body weight isnt enough then prop your legs up on the sofa and try it. if that fails get someone to sit or patially put they weight on your back while you do it.

I really can't see how laying on the floor would be of much use sorry.
#26
just realised you probably use small diameter plates and not the large ones I had in my mind, still seems the range of movement wouldnt be very good so my point still stands. Benching is all about coming deep, elbos Need to be going back past your body.
#27
Is dumbell bench pressing not much harder than barbell bench pressing? You would be working all the stabilising muscles as well as the pecs. As much as the guy with his 32kg dumbells may have been gloating, those making fun may find it harder than it sounds...............or perhaps not:thumbsup:
#28
Not bad for the price but a max user weight of 100KG inc the weights kinda screams "I WILL BREAK EASILY!" Not bad if you're like 13 and wanna do weights though. :D
#29
Isntead of lying on the floor - spend £35 on this.... even a lower weight done properly will be of more benefit than carpet lifting...
#30
If you can't bench press anything over 10k then this is for you!

Complete disaster of a bench - for wimps only.

Avoid like the plague, unless you wish to seriously injure yourself for some strange reason.

That bench is useless. avoid

Yeah dumbells are a bit harder, but 32 still isnt much to shout about. i'd say if you can do 32kb db's you can probably bench 30kg a side on a bar.

Thing is it depends on form and reps etc. Alot of people I see don't take the bar or dumbells down deep enough, don't touch the db's together in the middle, bench with an arched back etc etc. Bounce the weight off their chests and such.

benching with an arched back is the correct form, gives a stronger base.

anyway not to get away from the point, this bench is pants

use dumbells instead if must do on the floor then way easier to put down but as others have said range is massively limited and a press up may be of more benefit for free.

bench says max user weight of 100kg - i never understand how they work that out but i assume that they assume most home users dont press over body weight so id guess 200kg inc user should be ok on flat (different on inclines)
if in doubt why not email tesco.

the width of this whilst making slightly weaker is nice as york bench i have shoulders dont fit between main uprights without rubbing.

Got anything to back this up with, some artciles etc if possible? I know some power lifters use the arched back technique, but have a special vest with it.
I'm thinking more of your average weight trainer though, 100kg bench pressing etc.
#38
Is there any chance any of the more knowledgable people in the thread would suggest an alternative bench (without going *too* expensive) that would allow you to use heavier weights? :0)

arched back pushes shoulders into bench which should lead to a more solid push.
thought those vests worked because they are virtually spring loaded and you have to actually pull your arms back if nothing on the bar.

spordan - more than what? dont think anyone actually knows the weight limit

Ahhh.. my bad, I read it as it would support a total weight of 100kg, not a USER weight of 100kg :oops:
