The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    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:
