Anyone know the best place to get a decent weight training bench that allows you to use a bar for chest press, not bothered about all the other fancy bits.

    Thank you.

    Hi, quite happy to get the weights seperate.

    Is this type of bench any good? how sturdy is it and is the size of the mat big enough for your back ?

    Many Thanks

    They're very sturdy and the back cushion/pad is quite narrow, but that helps when lowering the weights to your chest, by not restricting arm movement.

    yeah its a good bench. got one myself for the same price as above from argos

    A lot of people slag off these "cheap" benches, are they really OK ?

    Hi There

    I have a weider bench which is similar to that pictured below link..I've had it for around 3 years and can vouch for its quality build. You can't go wrong with Weider equiptment!
    Check out ebay - you should be able to pick one up for £30..
    The bench pictured earlier in this thread, seems like the York bench's - nice to look at, but can't handle any real weight..
