Body Solid Leverage Adjustable Utility Bench

Only had this a week, but so far I like it. My review is similar to others. Very sturdy bench, packaging is bad (my back cushion has a dent at the base from being squashed by one of the tubular pieces during shipping, but not so bad I would send it back). Bench is high, which makes it harder to do concentration curls or pick up dumbbells while sitting on it. Overall though, it is a good bench. As far as putting it together, heed the other reviews that say not to tighten the bolts till the cushions are on and you should be able to get all of the bolts into the cushions. Also, thanks to the reviewer who said not to put on the handles till you have the cushions on- very helpful. I've only done a couple of workouts so far with this bench but it is great. It pairs well with the Valor Fitness BD-7 rack.

This bench is great! It wasn't too easy to put together, but after it's all together, I'm very happy! It's the perfect size and it's exactly what I was looking for!
Big and solid

This bench is really a nice bench once it is put together....therein lies the rub, getting it together. It's a true PITA to put together as the bench seatback screws do not all go into their holes. I got enough in to hold things together ok, but I wish they'd do a better quality control on those parts. Everything else went together ok and the bench overall is very solid and works well so far. Some parts also came scratched from either the factory or shipping. Not a big deal as they provide touch-up paint but still kind of annoying.
Good Bench But

Over all the Bench is good however its a nightmare to put together and the Seat does not line up with the screw wholes I still could only get 3 in after 3 hrs of just trying to get the seat on

Cons:No preacher curl attachment.Pros:Fairly easy to adjust and maneuver despite its large size.VERY sturdy with high quality design and parts.Not sure I've ever seen a better value in a fitness product ([$]). The leg attachment only accepts olympic-size plates -- which is a positive. When selecting an incline position, the bottom section automatically adjusts as well. Inclines to almost 90-degrees, which is perfect for barbell shoulder presses. Handles for leg extensions and curls are a nice touch. Great product!!
