My brother is wanting to buy one.
We need something sturdy but not something huge.
Can we get something at a local sporting goods store? I'm assuming it would be to expensive to ship something like this.
Someone suggested newyorkbarbell.com in another thread. Free shipping in the US on some (most?) things. Worth a look.
very good bench:
alright but sturdy bench:
the bottom one is your best bet if you arent doing heavy ass PL shit
Buy locally if you have any nice stores around. That's where I got all my equip from. Ive found that you can haggle equipment store owners just like you can the people with the street stores in mexico. Markup is huge.
Do you want a flat or adjustable.
He wants as adjustable.
I just got an Impex Marcy MWB850. It's a great all-around bench and the crutches go high enough for me to do squats (I'm 6'5".) That + Olympic barbell + 300lb weight set = FTW.
coolest flat bech EVAR!
Our Price $1,300.00 Shipping $265.00
Damn. That is impressive. Price tag owns me though.
see, he could aford the shipping...
FWIW if you have ever used elite equipment, you would nto have a problem witht he price, there quallity is unmatched.
I got one of these at academy for like $175 I think
the elite mono i lifted on was fuckin top notch
I bought an adjustable, sturdy bench a few years back with an oly bar and weights for 300 or so at a local sporting goods store
werd, they had one at BAG, that thing was fucking NICE!
I want one like it...
SO can anyone reccomend some cheap ones at like Dick's Sporting goods?
Or at least some thing I should pay attention to?
NYB has shiped prices, and there stuff is of fairly good quality.
Thanks. Currently browsing
I'm pretty sure they sell these at Dick's.
Ended up getting an Marcy Impex Monster Olympic size bench at Dick's on sale for $149
Looks similiar to this one:
Also picked up 300lbs of weights with a 7ft bar for $99
Nice, that's pretty much exactly what I got, but the squat crutches weren't high enough for me, so I got teh adjustable one and it's working out great so far. Marcy is a good brand, I hope it works out as well for you as it did for me.
6000 lb. Capacity
