Thread: Does bench quality affect your bench?

    There are 2 benches at my gym, one of them I never bench well on, and the other one I do. I will have to grab the names off of them, but the shitty one seems like the rack is too narrow, and my hands fall too close to where the bar goes into the rack and I am going to get pinched.

    If you're going to be training for a while, save up for some decent equipment. Check Craigslist frequently. Don't buy a cheap adjustable bench.
    I have a cheap adjustable bench, not interested in getting another. Decent adjustable benches are way out of my price range. I'll look into Titan and see if I can find any Rogue's used in my area. Need to save up first, since seeing a SSC is the first order of business. And then getting a real belt...

    I use that stuff that keeps rugs from sliding. Super cheap and I just keep it folded up in my gym bag.

    Great idea! I have a bit of shelf-liner lying around, never occurred to me to put it on my el cheapo bench.

    If you think the pin is sketchy, you could always pick up a garden spike or 60D nail at Home Depot.
