Competitor CB 729 Olympic Weight Bench Review
The Competitor CB 729 Olympic weight bench is a reasonably price weight bench that is suitable for those people who are under 6 feet tall. It is suitable for use at home for users of all, but professional levels. This bench has a 2 ½ by 2 ½ steel tube frame, and 5 back pad positions to allow for a versatile strengthen training workout. The bench includes a leg developer with a foam roller pad, and has an adjustable height bar for your weights. It also holds Olympic size weights which quite possible is why Olympic is including in this benches name.
Due to the relatively low price this weight bench is made of a combination of high quality sturdy materials (such as the frame) and lesser quality materials such as the plywood under the cushioning. Still this weight bench is well enough made it should last for some time with proper care.
As with many products we review, we do wish that the warranty was a little longer.
While the Competitor CB 729 Olympic weight bench serves its purpose well it is not the most comfortable bench to use. The leg extensions are too short for taller people, making it difficult if not impossible to do certain exercises. In addition adjusting the bar for the weight is difficult and therefor takes away from the workouts itself. Although the upholstery and padding is somewhat firm, there is simply not enough of it to add to any comfort to working out on this bench. However, despite these flaws, most users find that this bench provides them with the type of workout they are looking for.
This weight bench comes with a 2 year limited manufacturers warranty
measures 45” X 50” X 67”
designed to support 600 pounds user and weights
