    Good bench for home for cheap

    I'm looking at getting a bench for home cuz the **** gym always seems to be closed when i'm not working and open when I am. Anyway I'd like an adjustable one(so i can do incline and flat) that is pretty sturdy but wont be putting 2 much weight on it(300 max probably) since I won't have a spotter. Also need an olympic bar, weights, and maybe some dumbells. All on a broke college student budget. Suggestions guys? Should I order it online or be cheaper just 2 go to academy or something? Any brands liked or disliked?

    Quit griping and go to the **** gym on campus. Actually if ya had the time and could make it to NB, I'd get ya in my gym.... the manager is cool as hell. Academy you can buy an actual olympic bench, bar and about 300 lbs of weight for a good deal. I thought about it but I have no place to put it.

    Check to see if you have a "Play it again sports" around you.....they have good cheap used and some new equipment. as for the olympic bar, academy is a good bet....this time of year there are a ton of sales going on for sports equipment. (new year "I want to get in shape thing")

    Bigtex: The stupid campus gym is closed till school opens again and even when it's open it's crowded as s*** the times when I can go in. What time does the one in NB close? I usually workout around 10:30. I'm going to have to go to academy and check that out... any idea on the price? I'm tired of feeling like I only get 3 workouts in a week cuz the sh**ty gym doesn't feel like being open. WE NEED a 24 hour fitness here.
