    IMO if you haggle and its easy to get the seller to go lower in price then i would think twice about it. But in all honesty you cant really go wrong at £60.

    Ill be setting up my home gym in the next few weeks Jonny, got a good £1000 to spend on it.

    Is it what YOU want??
    I personally wouldnt buy it,I'd put the £60 towards a heavy duty one.
    If thats all u want to spend then u probably wont get anything better for that money mate.

    Yeah, going to buy a nice Power-Rack, Bench and 235kg Oly Weight Set. Then other accesories like DB Handles, EZ Bar and things like that.

    Cant wait to start training at home mate, no more wating for equipment, listening to crap music etc.

    check it's all sturdy and stuff. so it's not only £60 because it's gonna fall aprt and kill you the second you lift the bar. Other than that, if it checks out I'd say it's well worth it!

    hi,
    im fairly sure ive tried this bench when a mate was looking to buy one for his garage gym. if its the one im thinking of i couldnt get on with it because the bar hooks/supports where in the exact spot where i wanted to place my hands for gripping the bar whilst pressing ???
    i am tall so maybe only a prob for tall people but just something to try if you are able to try before you buy.

    another thing with these kind of benches, check the max weight limit, if you weigh say 180lbs and the bench has a limit of say 300lbs youve only got to be benching above 120lbs and your likely to have the thing collapse under you.
    keep a eye on ebay a buy something heavy duty, age not a prob you can always paint it and reupholster the padding if ness.
