[Amazon.ca] Magic Fit - Adjustable Weight Bench Flat/Incline/Decline

I ordered one last week and it just shipped today with an estimated delivery date of June 4th.

If you look at this description it says 330lb capacity and the same one on Amazon.com has a 600lb capacity so I'm not sure which is accurate.

Solid deal considering most fitness equipment is sold out everywhere.

Hmmm... if you're planning on benching on this 330lb is not really going to cut it.... thanks for posting OP but i'll wait for something rated higher

Since the pictures <multiple> indicate 330 lb, I would assume that

Decent deal

Just be aware that this will probably be useful for up to 1.5yr for a novice lifter. (330- 170lbs new lifter =~160lb bench)

obviously depends on the lifters weight too. even so i would be super nervous benching anything on this near that weight capacity

I can't even curl heavy on that bench... Nice price though.

Probably the same. The "Gold Gym" is just the Branding

A year and half to bench 160lbs for a novice lifter starting at 160-170lbs? No way. Much less, 3 to 6 months. Look up Starting Strength.

Can anyone suggest a bench that easily folds away/upright to save space?

As a side note, I have to wonder how much exercise equipment will be on craigslist/kijiji as the lockdown lifts.

I own this bench, bought it two months ago.

Currently only using 52.5lbs dumbbells on it, I weigh about 160lbs. Wouldn't recommend more weight, the bench is very light.

Edit: posted early by accident wanted to add more.

It's honestly not bad I paid 140 for it, a bit of pain to adjust as they have a screw system adjust the incline/decline. It has a weird screw in the middle and due to the design the bench moves based on where the weight is distributed on the bench.

Yeah I hear you and anticipated a response like this.

In theory, yes, it should take a beginner that long. I'm familiar with SS, and have ran it, as well as 531 and other established programs. My lifts are mid intermediate level.

The reality is that most beginners don't have a lot of guidance. They don't know what proper form is, they don't know enough about nutrition, rest, training frequency and volume etc. As a result, they don't actually achieve the progress that they theoretically should be (5-10lbs/wk/lift). The gyms are full of people who have been lifting for 5-10yrs, but have the progress that could have been made in 2-3yrs.

That's just how life works and the reality of what people *typically* achieve. That's what I based my comment on.

Apparently horse stall mats are the best bang for your buck for home gyms
