This is a nice addition to my home gym. Package arrived within 2 days with everything secure...not a scratch on any of the tubing and no missing parts. Don't let the negative review on here regarding the assembly sway you from this bench. If you can change you oil you can assemble this bench...that's how easy it is. I routinely lift with 225-305 on the bar and the machine is stable. Nice for close grip benching and shoulder shrugs, too. All in all a nice addition to my garage gym.
Looks hard to assemble, but once out of the box its not bad , easy to break down if you need to move it from one room to another its great for arms and situps strong construction worth the price... Cons... Squeeks a bit with heavy weights, two people would work best to assemble but overall a good machine
Safely able to do bench presses alone. Perfect crunch bench, head positioned opposite weights.
Loved this bench press. It's very sturdy and is perfect for working my arms and abs. I would absolutely recommend this to friends that also want a home gym. Excellent for the price.
Very nice unit got it for my 14 years old son. The safty of this equipmrnt allow him to workout by himself without anther person watching the weight
Good product. I read drawings for a living so that is something I m used too. You need a socket set-can;t recall if I switched to metric or not. You also need a pair of pliers to hold the nut while using the socket. Don't get overwhelemed with the drawing and the order of operation. Lay the base and work from the there. I have used this equipment at the gym, and you can get real results, with out worrying about dropping too much weight, you can great definition if you can do a lot if reps with decent weight, I just got it. The time I have used it-I am really glad I got it. Its a pretty good deal at overstock. Go ahead and compare, I did and i don't think I found any thing within the price range.
Very stable machine. Set up was a little frustrating because there weren't any directions to follow just a blown up picture showing where all the parts go. Once everything is spread out on the ground it doesn't take more than an hour to assemble. I' 6'1'' so my shoulders are wide enough to the point that using both arms at the same time is uncomfortable. I use it with one arm at a time and it works great for isolation. Nice addition to the home gym.
This is a GREAT piece of hardware for your home gym. it's small enough to fit in a small bedroom,but you can still pack on some serious weights. I love mine and I doubt you'll find better quality for the cash. The Valor press simulates the effect you would get if you were to use dumbells to press with. You start wide at the bottom then hands move in close at the top of the movement. The Valor machine gives the same movement as some of the more expensive chest press machines found in commercial gyms.The machine is well built and solid enough I got exactly what I was after with this purchase.
You can have mine. The product is shipped to be fully assembled. The only instructions are ONE sheet with all the parts floating in mid air.You need to figure out what goes where first. No step by step process or anything to at least tell you the position of certain parts. Find an exercise equipment store, buy onbe fully assembled. It's worth the extra money.
This is a nice bench for a beginner. The construction and welds are good and solid. The manufacturer needs to provide more clarity in the assembly instructions.
This piece of equipment was perfect for me. I do not have a workout partner so with the Valor BF-47 I can workout at home and not have any fear of dropping weights or not pushing myself hard
Easy to put together, heavy duty., safe if you use heavy weights without a spotter, also work great for shoulder shrugs
Great bench, strong and sturdy.
I now can work out alone with the fear of injury. It's a great product.
Overall a 9.5 out of 10 Just disappointed that they sent a MINORLY COSMETICALLY damaged product....poor QC Everything works PERFECT !!! Machine is AWESOME !!!!!
Not the easiest to install and the quality is ok. The picture looks way better than the actual product. I will keep it for now
geometry is all wrong, too much strain on elbow joints attempting the lift
