Ok, so up until now I've been using a $70 walmart bench and a standard 20lb bar with a huge assortment of oldschool vinyl/new vinyl/cast iron/etc weights. And it has done the job but now it's getting to the point where I don't trust the bench to hold me + the bar/weight for bench. And it takes too long to switch between all these weights when doing exercises...
Locally, there is nothing to choose from. I am however driving to the mainland in about 3 weeks and found a pretty good sports store. I'm looking at a bench and an an olympic set. I'd like some input on this please?
-Bench (regular $399CAD, on sale right now for $299)
also seen here:
It looks pretty good to me (flat,incline,decline, move uprights around and its a squat rack).
-300lb olympic set (45lb bar + 255lbs of weight)
This is regular $299 on sale for $279 (OMG THE SAVINGS!!)
Keep in mind these prices are canadian dollar.
So I'm basically looking at $299 + $279 + 15% tax = $660
