Marcy Platinum SB-228 Utility Bench
Great for Beginers
not the best bench in the world and i have no idea how much it will hold but it gets the job done were im at right now so thts all tht matter great for ppl who r starting out i read some other reviews about this earlier and ppl said it was unsturdt or not stable enough no thts not it the bolts r very long so it order to make it sturdy and safe tighten all the nuts after u get all of the on and have them really tight or the bench will wabble but overall a good product

Waste of Money!!!!
I was drawn to the lower price, but alas, you get what you pay for! Assembly was very difficult and the holes on the bench didnt line up properly and it came missing screws and bolts. In an attempt to stop to constant squeaking I tried using duct tape, it didnt do anything to stop the constant noises and wobbling during use.Because of the poor ergonomics doing ab workouts are anywhere from difficult to painful and half the time the bench feels like it is going to fall apart. Horrible product that Dick's should really consider pulling from thier shelves.

The most unsturdy bench I have ever used. When doing presses if feels like your going to fall to the left or right of the bench.

It was hard to put together. Good luck trying to do ab work. And it sucks to do dumbell bench presses, your head hangs off the bench. I wish I could get my money back.

Easy to assemble and works well. I use it 5 days a week, 210lb male here.

Putting it together was quick and easy, using it is the problem. It's easy to adjust but is the least sturdy piece of equipment I've ever used. If you don't have a problem with wobbling, then this might work out for you.

I didn't have any trouble putting it together. Strong, compact, folds flat, good decline!
