Looks the same as mine, had to take butterfly and leg attachments off as they were practically useless.

Other than that it's alright, good way to see if you're going to use this sort of equipment. If you don't then you've not wasted much. If you do then you will probably upgrade in the future.

gave you some heat to get you started:thumbsup:

aint any good for people over 6 feet tall, or for people bench pressing over 140 kgs on the bench press, but great if you are just starting out, its a great for the price voted hot also dont for get quidco

I picked up one of these for £20 late last year. As already said its a sturdy enough piece of equipment for the money.

I think you would know not to get this if you were benching 140kgs!

Does not come with the weights.

140k, damn no good for me then /s

Banned

I can't believe how much weights cost. I'd have to spend over £160 just to cover how much I bench now, never mind in the future.

With the bench included, thats the equivilent of 7 months of my gym membership. Nothx.

Have some heat, in reply to the show offs above. This is never going to be as good as pro/gym equipment and as such is priced in a way to reflect this. If you want strong gear then powertec FTW, but for the user base that this is aimed at it is very good value.

lets be honest here, anyone who benches 140kg wouldnt come onto an internet forum to gloat about it......

I usually only bench 6' tall people who weigh over 140kg. Saves buying weights. I have to keep feeding my friends though. :roll:

Loving all the usual lifting haters in here.

anyways.. this comes with a maximum usuage weight of 100kgs?? so your average 70/80kg guy is only able to lift 20/30kgs of weight before it snaps? :roll:

Sounds like a good price for somthing to hang my clothes on! :-O

hehe. my housemate has actually just started doing that off of my barbell! didn't notice the first time, got through a few presses before i realised. it looked so ridiculous i had to stop before i dropped the bar through laughter.

question: i've got a pretty small body type. more lean than anything. started doing weights about 2 months ago, started out pressing about 40kg (yeah, i know: i'm a real superman) doing 3 sets of 12 reps. i workout about 3 times a week, and am now up to 54kg, or 58kg on a good day. is this about the right level of improvement over 2 months, or should i be lifting more by now?

Buy weights second hand / off eBay.. they're a fraction of the cost!

Sounds about right in my opinion :thumbsup:

Make sure you're getting enough protein in your diet, and work out other muscle groups in your body to keep everything balanced.

And occasionally switch it up, instead of doing 12 reps of 54Kg, try doing 3-4 reps of 60Kg+, you will use different muscle fibres and your strength WILL increase.

If you are looking at building strength you wouldnt be doing 10-12 reps, that's pointless. You want to aim for 5-6. Don't mix it up at the early stage, continue increasing the amount by 2-5lbs a week and do 3 sets to begin with. If you start failing on the last set drop it back a little, increase by less and increase sets to 4 or 5.

If you are really stalling with increasing the weight then you might need to shock your body. Don't do any weights for two weeks, eat like a Sumo wrestler and when you come back to it drop the weight by 20% and work up again.

Also you need to be squatting and deadlifting. Your legs are the biggest muscles in your body and you have to encourage your body to build muscle, easy way to do this is work the biggest muscles.

40kg to 58kg is good for a beginner, but if you follow the above and aren't benching 90kg easily in 2/3 months I'd be surprised. You have to eat a lot though, turkey, chicken, beef. Aim for 3000 calories to begin with.

Im ******ed as i weigh 120kg

Is this a good deal? I've been looking for something like this, + £5 delivery charge and have to buy the weights separately? Please advise.

thanks very much peeps for the advice. I'll add to the weight i lift and reduce the reps accordingly. i've been eating silly amounts of chicken, and have been drinking whey protein shakes to try and keep the calories/protein up. just not seeing the benefits quickly enough, but i'll stick with it.

100kg is the target, but i realise i'm still miles away from that. should check on hukd for a good deal on performance enhancing steroids (kidding)!

rep for those who gave me the advice/encouragement.

eat 5 meals aday and drink lots of water, get yourself same zma and tribulus(they can be taken together), keep taking the weight gain. do 15 sets per body part of 3X5 ie flat bench,incline, flys the first set on each do 20 reps of lighter weight to warm the muscle part up and to get the fast twitch muscles working then for the next set put more weight on and do 8 reps make shaw you are finding the last rep hard, put a bit more weight on and do between 4 and 6 reps for the next 3 sets the last reps make shaw you have a spotter there to help you as your last rep you should be needing help.(do the same for the next sets) do the same for the rest of your body parts but only work one body part a day. do a 3 day on 1 day off, 4 days on 2 days off . always warm up befor you start and warm down after,

great price thanx

Have to agree, I.m 6ft slim built like a distance runner, and lift for strength not bulk. I weigh 78kg and do curls with 10kg per arm bench 40kg, which is nothing but well over weight for the bench.
First glance it's definitely a good deal, seems more suited to children though.
Just make sure If you buy it, do some maths on your own weight

I can confirm this is the case, stopped me buying this bench before - confirmed by tesco themselves. Cold from me.

not too sure on this one , would have to check the main bar the bench rests on first to see how strong it is, the problem is, it looks wider than most cheap benches so will not be near as strong,
but for just light use im sure it would be fine

i have a york one i paid 50 quid for from argos years ago
looks similar to this one
argos.co.uk/sta…htm

still use it now when i can be arsed , and i have benched 137 kg s on it and its fine ,(i weigh around 80kgs) reckon it could take a lot more.

Oh and planche pushups and one armed chins are where its at baby

you gotta keep an eye out for deals, or like some one said check ebay a lot

i got a load of alex rubber coated 10kgs weights for dirt cheap off of newitts , was a bargain considering the weight , i reckon they lost money on the delivery alone lol.

This sounds like the best answer, I used to ahve this about 5 years ago weight about 80kgs then and would have benched about 50kg on there so that would have been about 130kgs total weight on it. I do remember bench pressing some weights and then putting it back on the stand only for a flake of metal to fall stright into my eye.

Its definately a good deal for the price but looking at it 5 years on I wouldn't bench more than 40kgs on it as all the weight is pretty much put onto the back 2 screws!

way too flimsy for your average 70/80kg joe who would be expected to comfortably lift 30kgs or over.. deeming it useless in my opinion.
