« on: May 22, 2022, 06:06:44 am »
Which is the better value FID adjustable home workout weight bench? A $100 ebay cheapie or a $300 Pro-Form Carbon Strength blade design name brand?
FID is Flat-Incline-Decline bench.

It also depends on your body (frame) size and weights. First one is rubbish, second one is a bit small for me but looks decent enough for a home jobbie. It does look a little high for you though tbh, don't want to put your legs up like you're doing pilates.

For dumbbell weights I use few adjustable sets of cheap standard weights, considerably cheaper and far less screwing around changing weights over when running multiple sets. If you shop wisely you can setup a pair of 45kg for about $200, extra sets beyond that for convenience are less as you end up with a bunch of smaller weights.

For me, more pros than cons. I do have a perfect set in mind one day, but they are hideously expensive.
