I have the bench you posted above but I have the Thompson Fat Pad on it. I forget how high it is. 24" I think?

that bench is 17.5 i think - web site says the fat pad is only wider??

I think mine is 19 which is to high

No way is it 24" high, as Todd already mentioned I would think most would be in the 16-19" at most range.

Maybe it is 22 then with the fat pad.  I measured from the floor to the top of the pad.

Standard Rogue bench is 18" high to the top of the pad.  The pad is 2-1/4" thick.  Pretty sure the Thompson is plusher but I'd think you'd sink into it making it a wash in the end.

If it's the monster utility bench, they've got the height listed as 19 3/4" with the fat pad.  Per RPS rule book, max competition bench height is 18 3/4".  I had some time to kill, so I looked up the numbers  ;D

Measured it last night and that is just about spot on.
