£93.46 with weights

Good find, will save me a little space as my current press doesn't raise, will order in 2 and a half hours when I get paid!

Maximum user weight of 100kg seems a bit flimsy. You won't be benching anything heavier than the morning paper with this.

hmmm, is it combined user and bench weights? I'm 85kg and bench 78kg.

Will I bust it?

Might bust you if it collapses under you:oops:

Good point, this only seems good for children & people starting out lifting weights. I'm only in the beginning stages myself and this would probably do me right now [I got another one for free a few weeks ago from the gym I go to though], but if you're going to buy something like this, which will potentially last almost forever, you may as well buy something durable..

Voted hot because of the saving, but the product would get a cold vote. Someone at just over 11 stone (fairly average weight probably, though more than I weigh) would only be able to safely attach 30kg to this bench..

another clotheshorse

Unless you're very light and untrained, not sure there's much point. You'll likely get up to 100kg total weight quite quickly... The bench *might* be able to take more than that, but given how much it could hurt if it broke at the wrong time, not worthwhile imo.

You can get benches that can take twice that weight for under £50 - they won't have as many bells and whistles, but they will be much more useful to most people.

lmao - i'm heavier than the max weight, and thats even without a bar/weights.

Good bench for 6 stone kids though starting out with 1kg weights............

It doesnt sound very sturdy. As im only 70kg, and can bench about a 100Kg. Either way I'm max out the bench weight limits. I am no way the strongest or heavyist of people. So this might be good for starting level, but if you are serious about getting into weights, do not think this would be suited for your selves for the long term.

If your good at welding, yuo could weld a box section in the centre of the part where the weights rest to make another leg. This will prob give you another 50kg+ weight limit.

Anyway if you weigh 16 stones then your overweight or your already pumping so you dont need a £34 bench?!?!

Bargain i say and will be fine for 99% of normal people.

Are you saying that some of us are adnormal then? LoL!
Ok, so I get a tad carried away with my lifiting. Thou what im trying to say is that, if you did get into it. It really wouldnt last you long. Depends on the gains you could make, in either way you get there. lol! I've seen some of guys in gym go up by 2 stone in a month. Probably not all muscule, but that still a heavy load for this bench to supposrt. Just a thought.

Agreed, I weigh 220lbs so it wouldn't even take me let alone a single weight lol

spend the extra £10 at argos - it still doesn't take that much weight and doesnt have butterfly

argos.co.uk/sta…htm

# Barbell stands 120kg.
# Leg extension 35kg.
# Maximum total weight loading including weights and user 200kg/31.4st.

also

this one comes with 35kg weights

argos.co.uk/sta…htm

and this for £52.49 which is pretty much the same as the tesco one but takes twice the weight?

Pumping anything heavier than the weight of a bag of sugar then you're best avoiding or you'll be in casualty. Cheap junk!

spot me pencil neck!

perfect for me im 3ft 2 and 30kg so i can bench press 3 times my weight awesome,,,, im gonna be so ripped

Possibly worth buying for very beginners, but once you are pushing any serious weight you want to be getting to a proper gym. Get a spotter when you want to go heavy or get on the Smith machine and put the stop-locks on. The butterfly attachments are a waste of time; the movement just isn't the same as a seated fly.
Gym membership can be expensive, but if you want to have a full spectrum of equipment it is unrivelled by the 'home gym' market.

Just out of interest if they put on 2 stone in a month after going to the gym but not necessarily muscle then where is the weight coming from? Forgive me if there's an obvious answer to this!

TWO STONE??????? :w00t:

We have one of these in our4 student house (I think its the same). We thought it was max user weight of 100KG + max weights of ~80KG as it says on the unit. SO thats how weve been using it thus far. Until it kills one of us its been a good buy

Edit: And when it does kill one of us A. it wont be me im too lazy to use it much and B. the person will be so massive and stacked it will just bounce of their huge ripped body

steriods/water?

I know someone recently killed when doing skullcrushers (aptly named, that's what killed him) and a professional bench collapsed. I wouldn't risk a poorly made bench when lifting lumps of iron above my body i'm afraid.

Its like tyres on a car, value and safety don't go together.

LOL

100kg combined is a bit low for me unfortunatly.

LOL 100kg user weight, this this is dangerous

I got this Bench a while ago. Its a good buy for the money and seems resonably study - The main plus for me is this bench seems to be slightly wider than most others I've seen giving slightly better balance and control when pressing, however forget even considering using the butterfly - complete waste of time and space.

I'm about 13 stone and bench about 90kg on it - its not completely "shake free" but Im sure I could chuck on atleast another 30kg with no real problems. Just make sure you assemble everything tightly.

For the average sized person who just wants to maintain or define their body its a steal - for those looking to hulkanic proportions you should already know that a much stronger and expensive bench will be needed.
