    Help me choose a bench...

    I am in the market for a bench. I need flat/incline one. Please recommend me one if there is something good there. I would like to keep under $200. BTW, due to my post count I can't post links and show you all what I have been looking at.


    Thanks in advance.

    I bought a Marcy Monster Platinum Bench w/ a 300 LBS olympic weight set off of craigslist for $200. New it is $229-300, plus a weight set is another $150-200.

    The bench was mint when I bought it, very sturdy, has a built-in squat rack, ( the reason why I bought it ) and safety catches on the bench, which is nice since I workout alone in the basement. Marcy says it has a 700 LBS weight capacity.

    For $200 you can't get much more unless you get lucky. I also use the squat rack for overhead presses. and you can lock the leg extention to do situps. i'm happy with it.

    here it is:
