This is a sturdy and comfortable bench. I am a big guy so stability is rather important for me when training. It is a well designed and finished product. The only 1 thing I would comment on is the lack of a quick release lever for the adjustment on the backrest, meaning each time I want to adjust between the 5-6 levels I have to unscrew the knob, adjust the level and then re-screw- it is only a minor detail but can be tedious when changing frequently. Using it often with no problems!
