    it looks like you should be able to sit your butt and head properly, so i wouldn't worry.

    the one thing that i don't like about those benches is, after some wear and tear the bench pieces have give and wiggle while you lift.

    I'll get pics when the pieces arrive. I'll have a squat rack, a bench, a set of DB weights, and set of BB weights on some rubber mats. Nothing special but enough to do everything I need.

    I was talking to a friend at work and he was saying how he needed a treadmill, elliptical, and curl machine. :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:
