    Review:

    Please note the Marcy Diamond Elite Olympic Bench is also known as the Marcy Diamond Olympic Surge Bench.  The Marcy Diamond Elite Olympic Bench has an adjustable back pad allowing you to work all parts of your chest and shoulders, squat rack and leg developer allowing to build your quads and other leg muscles, it also has a removable preacher curl pad allowing you to work your biceps and other arm muscles.  Considering all the features this bench offers, you definitely get value for your money.

    Having so many features on one bench can sometimes make it look tacky but I think the manufacturer has still managed to make it look fairly stylish.  By having so many features on this bench it saves a lot of space, as it eliminates the need to buy the equipment separately.

    If having an exercise bench that allows you to work multiple muscle groups appeals to you, then perhaps the Phoenix 99226 would also be a good option.  However, the Marcy brand is a lot more established and well known if you prefer to stick to a weight bench from a well known manufacturer.

    On the back of the squat stand there is also two olympic weight plate storage posts to store weight plates which will keep your workout area looking tidy when not in use.
