    Cons:

    • CAP Barbell only provides 30 days warranty which is not long enough compared to some other manufacturers.

    Review:

    The CAP Barbell Deluxe Utility Bench has some very good features which a lot other weight benches don’t offer.  With one of them being the Cap Barbell Deluxe Utility Bench seat can adjust to 3 different positions which provides extra support and allows to find a very comfortable position when doing incline benching in particular.  Another great feature is how you can use resistance bands to tone your muscles, this can either used when laying on the bench or it can be used standing.

    This bench is really light only weighing 42 lbs however it can still support a weight capacity of 500 lbs (including user) in the flat position and 400 lbs (including user) in inclined positions. 

    Taller users may struggle with the bench a bit as the length may not give them full support, so if you’re over 6 ft you may struggle with this bench and perhaps you should consider the Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bench Series 5.1 instead.
