Comments about Valor Athletics Valor Fitness Olympic Bench:
I use the product 2x a week. It is a solid olympic bench that offers a variety of positions. It has a strong frame and does not wobble. The only issue I have with it is during flat benching. The way the cushion is supported allows for the upper body section of cushion to flex downward as you unrack. The company should have added a removable support behind the head position to figh this flexing of the cushion. It takes a little getting used & however is not a deal breaker. I would imagine it gets worse though as you push through 200lbs, 300lbs and 400lbs. A wooden or metal block behind the head and on the horizontal rack support would take care of this issue.
