Title: New Gear
Post by: FLEX on November 14, 2020, 06:19:35 PM
Ordered these today.  Shipping FedEx Ground on Monday from Alberta.  Should have them by next weekend.  This will pretty much complete my home gym.  Also grabbed four more 25 lbs plates for pulldowns and landmine rows.

Adjustable bench; 8 degrees decline to 85 degrees incline:

Adjustable dumbbells;  5lbs to 122.5lbs in 2.5 lb increments:

Nice. Are you going to secure that narrow end of the bench to anything?

No.  Why the hell would I do that?

It's got a rubber pad on the bottom and the floor is rubber.  It weighs 100 lbs so it's not going to be moving around on its own.

My guess is you will reconsider that once you have your weight on it + a 300 lb. Barbell.

Lots of benches have the "T" shape base like that.  Never had an issue with them.

With commercial quality benches, every T shaped one I've ever used is super wide at the top so nothing will ever tip it or make it wobbly. I guess you'll find out when you get it, I know my basement bench makes me nervous when benching heavy, but my equipment is pretty dated.

This is commercial quality.  It weighs a hundred lbs man.  It's not cheap shit.

You can call me down for a spot though, since I'm the one most familiar with your 6 minute bench 1RM attempt setup routine.  8)
