I use the bench for dumbbell workouts. It is sturdy and comfortable. It definitely exceeds the expectations based on the cost. It was easy to assemble and ready to use in about 20 minutes. Only drawback is the pad/foam is not extremely thick, no pain no gain, I wasn't looking for a lazy boy.
My husband and I bought 2 of these to assist in our efforts to complete the Beachbody Body Beast program. We were looking for a very simple bench (seeing that this would be the first time needing a bench and didn't want to go all out with the money just in case it didn't work out). A bench that does flat as well as a seated upright and slightly laid back positions. This bench is working out perfectly for us. The bench does wobble slightly but isn't too big of a deal for us knowing that we understood we weren't getting the top of the line product. This bench is a great deal for the price. The only downside for us, is that we don't need the leg holders at the end but again, not that big of a deal. We just work around them. Definitely would recommend this for beginners looking to dabble in weight lifting at home.

Solid sturdy construction. However, am disappointed that the main pad does not have a flat position. Of the four positions in which the main pad can be adjusted, the position which should be flat still has angle to it so it is not possible to sit evenly on the side of the bench to do dumbbell exercises. As well, the small angled seat pad is too short when doing situps. Part of your year end and spin end up being situated in the gap between the seat pad and the longer back paid. Very uncomfortable. Must put a towel or other pad between the two existing pads. And I am not a tall person with long legs (only 5'9"). May be good for a person with short legs.
