Great price indeed. Worth taking a punt on at that price especially as it will most likely end up as a clothes rack.

OK bench had this when i started training 4 years ago. its not too sturdy, cannot put alot of weight on it without it feeling unsecure.

Great price though. paid double for it i think.

its good for low weight & high reps though. people need to learn balance & get their formation right first anyway

I benched 100kg on one of these before, it wasn't a nice feeling.

This is a cracking price, I bought this for £44.99 about 9 months ago and it does the job. I would reiterate what has been said in that it is a little unsteady with the bigger weights, but for £23 you certainly cannot complain!

Agreed X).
As some people mentioned above, not one for heavy weights but will be good for people starting to lift weights. Voted Hot!

Great avatar. i wouldnt touch them again. had bad dealings with this company near christmas. posted info about it on hukd.

Shocking company, and customer service.

I have to agree with dvhendo . Having trained for over 20 yrs , this bench is ideal as a starting platform or for somebody just looking to tone up .
I certainly wouldn't conscider overloading the bench and would always advise using a spotter when reaching your limits .

shame there aint any in my area. been waiting for a cheapish weight bench since i just started getting fit lol

This bench seemed a good idea until I started reading the comments, it does look kind of un-sturdy, I'm almost around the 100kg mark, and deffinetley need to carry out proper form when doing that kind of weight, I don't think its possible with this bench.

ahhh, if only i had the space

If you weigh less than 70KG like me and bench less than 80KG then this bench is fine i reckon

i weigh 80KG & do 3 sets of 20 reps with 70KG (including barbell). Don't really wanna go higher than that, especially as i got back issues. If I wanna inprove then I might move to 25-30 reps.

Chip resistant, hmm wish I was then I wouldn't need one of these.

thats about all the power you need for something as flimsy as this. Great price but in no way a substitute for going to a gym. £23 is good though just for those snowy weeks where gmys decide to close early etc

Just get a girlfriend.........its a much more enjoyable workout.

Not necessarily, they wouldn’t say 120kg for the stands and 200kg user weight just for the sake of it. Even then there is most likely a threshold so it will take a lot more, they wouldn’t want a whole load of injury claims coming their way…

Need a bench, will order this for this price, as only need it for the days i dont go the gym on

I'd like to add that it'd obviously feel unsturdy if you're on carpet..
