It’s just a bench with a bar and weight set that you can add more or less to. And there’s a leg attachment at the end.

It’s something similar to this: https://www.amazon.com/Body-Champ-Olympic-Preacher-Developer/dp/B00OJX90UU/ref=sr_1_2?s=exercise-and-fitness&ie=UTF8&qid=1477093126&sr=1-2&keywords=weight+bench+set

But yeah if you have extra room It’s much easier/ convenient than going to the gym if you aren’t a gym rat. Like I don’t need all the elaborate machines most gyms have. .. I don’t work out all that often so this is fine for me.

Total: ~$1,000

The shorter bar and dumbbells were a gift from my in-laws. They were a package deal and contain two dumbbell handles, one EZ Bar, 2 20 lb plates, 2 10 lb plates and 2 5 lb plates.

Starting from complete scratch is tough, and expensive! The only equipment I had were the bar and dumbbells. I shopped around for a couple of months before deciding on all of this. I have heard mixed things about squat stands and I was on the fence for about a week about purchasing either the Valor stands or a Rogue rack (~$500), but my budget was to keep everything under $1,000. So far, the equipment has been great. I had a little trouble putting the squat stand together, but it has been holding up well so far. I am able to complete full workouts, with a little bit of planning.

My next step is to save up for a nice power rack and make some pro-style dumbbells.

Thanks for looking!

I have pretty much a brand new weight bench with 40lb bar and weights totaling up to 185lbs (with bar weight added) that I want to sell, I’m just not using it. Had it about a year and might have used it 10 times at most. Only issue is with the pin that raises the bench up for incline presses, the dog chewed on the black ball part of it but it still works fine.

here’s the bench I got off amazon

About $450 total from what I got off amazon. Make me an offer? I’ll start at $380 and throw in the mats I also got: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B4IHXRU/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I’m looking into purchasing either of the following adjustable/multifunction benches after the one I bought off Wish.com busted. Has anyone had any experience with either one and could provide a recommendation? I’m also open to other suggestions, but I don’t want to spend more than $300. I also like the multifunction purpose of the bench since I have limited space.

Marcy Olympic Weight Bench for Full-Body Workout MD-857, Grey/Black

The Body Champ one is about $70 cheaper and is what I’m leaning towards based on the reviews.

No kidding. I looked at the picture and eh, ok… Read “it won’t be cheap”. Closed the browser. It sure as hell doesn’t look expensive, nor is the amount of work to make that with the proper tools and skills.

Edit- Amazing how a weight bench that has a similar amount of engineering and pieces as our sim chassis can be built and sold for 30% of the price.
