    get a good bench!

    i was just thinking about how one time in AL I was at a gym. racked up the bench, and when i sat it back on the arms, the end where my legs were went up in the air, and i almost flipped over in it.

    Craig's List owns. Also, try any secondhand/ sporting goods consignment shops in town. Play it Again Sports is one. They have great deals. Just got a 1500 lb test Barbell for $32.98.

    I think he meant the barbell was tested to be able to hold 1500 lbs

    Walmart has a Gold's Gym XRS-20 bench (2 piece) with leg and preacher attachment for about $140ish, seems to be a decent setup . . . I was planning on getting that in a week or two . . .

    .

    The second hand shops usually are a better place to look. They know not to waste their time with anything from department stores.
