Product Summary

The Rep Fitness Competition Flat Bench is designed to handle the heaviest weights, and has compatibility with the Rep Fitness Wide Pad or the Thompson Fat Pad (with 4-bolt mounting pattern, please check yours) for those seeking an extra-wide pad.

A heavy-duty bench for big lifts.

Why a 3-Post Flat Bench? Nothing in the way of your feet, at powerlifting competition spec height, and rated to 1,000 lbs at an incredible price.

  • Dims: 17″ high (top of pad), 48″ long (pad), 12″ wide (pad), 62 lbs. 4″ thick pad. Designed to meet IPF specs of height, width, and length
  • Heavy-duty 3×3″ 11 gauge steel frame with even thicker connecting plates.
  • Durable vinyl upholstery with 4″ thick pad with plywood base. Connects with 4 bolts. 2 extra bolt holes on frame for future pad compatibility.
  • 17″ height from floor to top of pad. Our bench height allows athletes to use proper positioning of the feet, and arch the back to push up serious weight with proper form. Height stays the same when using the Rep Fitness Wide Pad. If swapping our pad for the Thompson pad (must be 4-bolt mount pattern), total bench height will increase 1/2 inch, and you will need to purchase (4) 3/8″(dia)x1″(length) bolts.
  • 3-foot design for ease of leveling, and to ensure front support does not get in the way of foot positioning. *Please note* Front foot DOES NOT need to be perfectly flat in order to be stable while you’re laying down on the bench. Similar to a tripod–lay down and let all 3 points support you, not just the front foot.
  • Welded metal endcaps
  • Handle and wheels for easy transport.
  • Easy assembly, 15 minutes with a wrench.

    Summary

    The Rep FB-5000 Flat Bench is the best value flat bench we've tested and reviewed. It offers an incredible combination of price and quality that many companies have overlooked for some time. With over 250 customer reviews, there is not 1 under 4 stars and most of those are for less than minor complaints. If you need a flat bench, this is the one we suggest. You could pay more, but it would still probably not be as good. Seriously.
