I'll assume this includes your own bodyweight.. so really you're not lifting much more than a plate on each side

I wonder how a bench can be rated for max 300lbs... I placed and order since I really needed a flat bench to compliment my newly installed rig and at 66 $ it's really isnt much money.

Thanks OP

one of the first reviews give it away:

Arrived on time and was easy to assemble. One of the main body screws holding the pad to the frame was stripped though so I had to epoxy it together to work. Not a big deal, and it does feel sturdy, but next time I will read the specifics a little closer. I noticed it says 300 lb max capacity, which in my mind was the person's body weight. Well when you are 220 lbs, and then lay down to do some 200 lb bench press, that ends up maxing it out apparently; first set of bench press with this weight cracked the board in half and thankfully the frame stayed in place enough for me to put the bar on the safety pins. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND FOR REAL LIFTERS. Good product for lighter weights.

Ive got this bench, been working great for the last year.
I do mostly dips and pushups and other things with my body weight (200lbs) against it and it feels sturdy as ever.

i picked this bench up at treasure hunt for $18 and quickly sold it and made my own - the weight max is not very good

Lmao. If you're a serious lifter, you don't get a shitty bench like that. A shitty barbell may just bend, but a shitty bench could kill you.
