Pros & Cons

What we like about the product...

  1. The Rogue AB-3 Adjustable Bench is the premiere bench Rogue sells that is well-loved by practically all who can afford it.
  2. Weighing in at 117 LB, the AB-3 is incredibly stout and stable at practically all bar loads.
  3. Includes 9 back adjustment angles and 6 seat adjustment angles which makes it easy to hit various parts of your chest during bench pressing.
  4. There's an optional leg roller that turns the bench into a decline bench making it an FID Bench.
  5. There are wheels and a handle that makes the bench easily maneuverable.
  6. The height of the bench when flat is 18" which is pretty close to the 17" IPF Powerlifting Standard.
  7. Fully made in the USA of US-sourced steel.
  8. The frame of the bench is fully welded, making it practically bomb-proof.
  9. The vinyl on the benchtop is thick, long-lasting, and has a decent grip.

What needs improvement...

  1. The AB-3 is over $1,000 for most people when shipped which is very expensive.
  2. The gap between the seat and back pad is quite large.

Product Summary & Specs

The foot catch locks firmly into place using a pop pin, and sets the user up for movements including the decline bench, decline dumbbell press, and decline sit-ups, among others.Other standard features on the AB-3 Adjustable Bench include load-bearing rubber feet for stability, cordura edges for enhanced durability, and a convenient handle and wheels for easy mobility.

    The Bottom Line

    The Rogue AB-3 Adjustable Bench is an incredible FID Bench if you can stomach the cost. In our review, we've noticed that those who have the bench love it, but there are many other options now available that can compete with the AB-3 on features at a much lower price. If you want the best bench Rogue offers, this is it, although we're hoping for some upgraded features soon.
