My physical therapist had recommended a therapy bar between 4-7 lbs. I searched online & in stores & found this product to be priced lowest. I was surprised to see it once it arrived as it exceeded my expectation. It's so versatile & has really helped my exercise routine. Shipping was fast-arrived in less than a week! I am very satisfied & recommend this as an excellent weighted bar.
My foot size is 8, 180 lbs and 5' 7". My feet hit the floor when pedaling. If I made an effort to keep my heels up it was better. When it was on a plush carpet it was worst. I made a 2" box to fit the front floor leg with 2" by 4"s. Now I am happy with it. You may need to put a couple of books under the front especially if on carpet. I could only recommend to a friend if they knew this.
I bought this because the weight limit was 350 lbs. Not that I weight that much but I wanted it to be sturdy and last a long time. Also easy to get on and off and adjust as needed if more than one person is using. Can't say if it would be good for doing crunches since I only invert and not all the way yet. I also wanted comfort on my ankles and this has it. Takes an hour to an hour and a half to put together but the directions were clear. This has 5 star reviews on this website and others which also influenced my decision to purchase..
