[Walmart] Gold's Gym XR 5.9 Weight Bench - $64.97

Lukewarm deal if you're looking for home gym equipment. Price is rising fast on amazon.ca.
Walmart price is still lowest CCC price.

I've always had a small home gym set up, but always also used a flat bench. Any ideas or suggestions on if the incline is worth the $65?

It does say that it will give me chiseled abs tho...

The weight capacity is 136 kg or 300 lbs. I'm pretty sure this includes your own body weight. So unless your not planning on going heavy it's an alright buy

I'd pass! I had this and the quality is not great. The back piece wobbles a lot and can't be tighten. Also like others were saying, you need to be 5'10 or shorter to be able to lie your head on it comfortably.

I have this benxh and even if i have been able to use it for some years. I qould suggest to go with something else.

Its short, hard to ajust and the seat has no flat position.

Way more expensive.. But walmart have a good prise on the gold gym xrs 2.0 at 148$. This one his great for the price.

I'm curently looking for a bench, good timing! I was about to get the Cap Bench from Costco at $120. I guess the one from Costco is better than this one, but I'm wondering if the XRS 20 would be better quality than the one from Costco? I understand the XRS 20 has more options, but I'm looking for a good deal on a bench first and more options is just extra!

I was a bit paranoid when I was looking around and went in for a Bowflex 5.1S. Pretty damn expensive and I am hoping I don't regret the purchase

What do you want to adjust exactly on a "non incline" bench?

How much did you pay, $399? Or have you found a better price?

Good price. I ended up ordering a bench from Amazon though because I was wondering how long it would take to get the Walmart one. The last few times I've done Walmart ship to store it's taken a month for it to be delivered to the store.

This is a cheap bench that should not be advertised as universal as it claims. Not worth the money in my opinion.
I bought this years ago used for $20 and it was replaced quickly. The leg pieces are annoying, especially the top one. it's uncomfortable and should be removable.
The bum part doesn't change the angle, so this is useless for anything that needs true lying flat.
Other than those, it's wobbly and is very limited with weight capacity.
