Bench weight limit? Pic included

Hi all,

Sorry if this seems like a bit of a guessing game but would you say is the safe weight limit on the barbell rack of my bench?

I've seen alot of ones around that have extra stability at the head end and was wondering if mine is a tad out of date.

Thanks guys

    180-200 kg total weight (you and whats on the bar)

    personally wouldn't want to be putting a bar with more than 85kg on it

    does it feel unstable when you use it ?

    get 2 grown adults jumping up and down on it and see if it can handle that... if it can then you know your fairly safe letting it handle that total weights.
