    Default Looking for Weight Bench Recommendations

    I'm looking to buy a weight bench. I've never owned one before. After looking around online there are a ton of options, so I feel a bit lost. The thing is, I'm not ready to shell out the big bucks just yet. I'm thinking something definitely less than $200, and preferably closer to $100.

    I have the Bowflex SelectTech 552 dumbbell set. For now, that's all I plan to use. I'm a beginner. If I really get a taste for it, I may consider stepping up to a more expensive setup, but right now I want a serviceable bench to use along with my dumbbells.

    For what it's worth, I'm 5'11" and about 240 lbs... don't know how much that would determine what the right bench for me is.

    Thank you for any advice you can give.

    What about making one yourself, ?

    You can make it posh and put foam on the top and some vinyl stapled to the wood
