I used the bench for sit-ups and lifting weights. I liked that it did everything as advertised and was not overly difficult to assemble. Unfortunately it proved to be a little too small for my height 5' 11" (181 cm). The vinyl covering is thin and the frame adjustments are quite fiddly. The steel frame is not powder coated, just grey paint that wears off quickly at the sliding adjustment points. It's a cheap bench that you get what you pay for. Best suited for a small to medium height person for occasional use once or twice a week. Leave the bench setup in one position if possible to avoid having to fiddle with the adjustments.
