2. Stability and Size: I'm 6'1" weighing in at 170lbs. The exercises I've seen other benches struggle with the most are weighted incline situps. I grab a 20lb plate, hold it behind my head and do situps left, center, right. Benches tend to twist to the left/right on those situps and it is most unsettling. This bench did not twist at all! So, I can now do that exercise much more comfortably. The bench is small, but it supports my head and is narrow enough that I can get nice and low with my presses. A bigger bench gives me a little more confidence, but I'm sure I'll work up to that with this little guy, too.
3. Folding and Storage: I'll add a picture of it folded and of the pin that lets it fold. This area was the only area that the bench disappointed me in. I was hoping it'd fold somewhere in the middle to get shorter, rather than just flatter. When it is folded, it is still the full length, it is just flat. Either way, it still fits in my closet with my weights and sandbags. Without looking in the closet, you'd never know I have a gym in my 700 sq. ft. apartment.
All-in-all I'm very pleased with this product. It was packaged well and only took 1 day to arrive (I live in a beach city near LA, so my proximity to it's source explains that). It is sturdy and fits in my closet, exactly what I was looking for!
It's incredibly easy to put together, comes in a very small box (see pic 1) compared to the size, and so on. I thought it would be unstable, but I put a remnant of carpet under it and it was solid as a rock for bench press, decline bench, single rows, fly, shoulder press, etc.
But then....as I was doing my bench press this morning, and lowering the dumbbells, I heard a nasty crack and ended up on my side with the dumbbells on top of me. Luckily, I got no injuries, but as you can see from pic 2, a pretty terrible weld job did me in. I don't think it's supposed to break like that....
Customers should know before buying that the bench is designed to support a maximum user weight of 250 lbs with a combined dumbbell weight of 100 lbs. So, although you cannot use this bench for lifting massive weights, it is ideal for people who are just starting out or who are focusing on fitness instead of extreme bodybuilding.

Well, it has been a little over a year since I have been using this bench. I started out using 5-pound dumbbells with it at least 5 days a week. Now I am able to use 25-pound dumbbells on the same routine. Not once have I had the slightest bit of trouble with the bench. Durable? I would have to say so. My original 4-star rating still stands.

Alright, I decided to do one last update for this review. What's the reason? Honestly, I still feel like you could not find a better bench to start weightlifting with for the price and quality, and I want to give you my take on what negative reviewers are saying. Here are some of the charges against the bench: a weird chemical smell, missing parts, rusted parts, wobbliness. First of all, let me tell you that any product that is shipped from a warehouse is likely to have a different smell. Ever been to the outdoors department at a retailer? Then you know what I'm talking about. The equipment will smell different at first, but that scent will eventually dissipate altogether. So, you don't have to worry that the bench is somehow lethally toxic. But when I received my bench, were there any rusted or missing parts? No. Everything was there as expected. As for wobbliness, I tend to think that this issue really depends on the skill of the person assembling the bench. You do a poor job, you get a poor result. Makes sense, right? C'mon people, let's be rational. I encourage you to read what other positive reviewers are saying about this bench if you still have any doubts.
