I bought this bench a couple of weeks ago and I have probably already used it more times and for more things than people use their entire gym membership. I use it for abs, lower back, legs, and roman chair situps. I don't use the actual bar on the bench, i use dumbbells, but I use the bar for squats, lunges, curls, and military press.

Includes weights, best bang for my buck
I got this bench for my stepson and he uses it every day, it's a great buy because it's the only one we found that includes weights.
I do recommend this product add introductory bench for beginners.
I bought this about a month ago, and it has helped to increase my frequency of working out. I have a busy schedule; having an all-in-one set like this saves time of stopping by the gym and saves a ton of room instead of individual dumbells.

I ordered this for my wife. I have dumbbell sets here at the house . They started to disappear and I found them stored neatly beside the large screen TV. My wife has several workout videos in which she uses various dumbbell weights. Long story short, I bought these for her as they have quick weight changes. She gets the Bowflex variable weight Dumbbells and I get my Dumbbells back. The service sat Academy was very good and we will use it again.
just got this a week ago and is just awesome I use it for bench press, squats, pull ups, leg/knee raises and much more, easy to put together by your self, the one thing is that if you are tall it might not be to good for you as far as pull ups, I am 5 feet 2in but if I was 5 5in I would not buy this to do pull ups.

Great Quality at a Great Price!
This piece was the perfect addition to my home gym. It was easy to assemble, easy to move around, and wonderfully well built. I am pleasantly surprised!
I bought one of these about 6 years ago and it has been used almost daily. It was easy to put together and even as much as it has been used it has been trouble free. I have bought a lot of exercise equipment in the past 40 years, and this has easily been the highest quality piece that I have ever owned I started my 19 yr. old son working out on this right after I got it. I don't really use it anymore because of age and injuries. He will probably be able to take it with him when he decides to

I'm 50 yrs old and still very active. Though I don't lift like I use to, I still love the feeling of pushing weights
I get to workout with kids.
I can workout anytime.
It's paid itself off. No more gym fees.
Many muscle groups can be engaged, priceless for certain exercises.
I'm 6'1". Its not made for tall people.
Limited range of motion. for my height.
Use this bench every other day. Leg press is great. Bench is hard, not much cushion compared to others I have seen. Could use another support running from front to back to stabilize better. Preacher bench is OK but needs a back on it to put your abdomen against. All in all a decent starter bench. Quality is directly proportional to what it cost.

Awesome youth starter bench!!
Great starter bench for youth, it gives you the versatility of a pro bench. Price is awesome for what you are able to do. Great product so far!
Was considering buying aerobic steps when I came across this Adidas Flat Bench. It has more uses for different types of exercise than regular steps. This bench is sturdy, cushioned, the perfect height/length, and was easy to assemble. It's a perfect addition to my home gym!

Decided to go with this flat bench after returning a multi-use bench from a different retail store that was not up to par with the design and costed twice as much. The returned bench did not lay flat and the curl extension was so crooked that it was unusable. I decided on this Adidas bench since i would be a moderate user and the price was too good not to try. I use this bench along with dumbbells and can accomplish many upper body workouts.
Design and construction: I found that the

The Padding: The outer material of the bench padding is well made and the padding on the inside seems to be some type of memory material that feels firm which is a good thing.
I would recommend this bench to any moderate lifter to be used with dumbbells but if you are into heavier barbell lifting then you may want to try a more expensive and heavy duty bench.
Being able to do sit-ups at home is essential to my 2014 workout plan. The BCG Sit-Up Bar allowed me to use a door in my home to be able start and increase my numbers of repetitions. This is a very reasonably priced tool that I have been using daily!
I bought this item and love it the only thing was I got the confirmation of buying it but it didn't tell me when I was going to receive it just kept saying it was still in status so I went on the customer online help and the lady help me alot told me the right day it was to come in then I got a email from FedEx and they gave me the wrong day it was to come in they told me it was going to take one more week but in then end the Academy online customer help was awesome

Great product I would recommend to a friend sturdy
I bought these because I work long hours at work and my time in gym have been limited lately. My grip already is stronger after a week of using. I would recommend for people who lift or do not. Strong hands is always a good thing.

Nice easy & affordable
I bought these on a whim. Because i work in an office I dont get much exercise. I thought this would be perfect for just sitting around and it is.
In the small town I live in Academy was the only store this item could be found. Shipping was free and arrived relatively quickly. I use it at the gym every leg day and this item is sturdy and well made. I would recommend it to anyone that asks.

A must have for every home gym
Plenty of padding to make it comfortable. The large ring allows for all kinds and sizes of clips
I bought this bet about 6 months ago to continue lifting while rehabilitating a lower back injury. Lower back has healed and I still use this belt. It is comfortable and easy to use. Would purchase again!
I bought these for my granddaughter to strengthen her arms for gymnastics. She loves them and wears them all evening after school. She says they are very comfortable with no rubbing and adjust to her ankles as well.

serves the purpose
After using these a few times in my exercise routine, they have served the purpose I purchased them for.
love the 3/4 extra length in the fingers. However the cushioning needs to extend from the cushion on the palm to the cushion on the fingers. There's about a one inch area with no cushioning where it just so happens the barbell often sits on your hand

Works great for heavy lifting. Great fit and grip for barbells.
