    As the title say's can any one recommend one? Nothing too expensive less than £150 ideally.
    Been looking on the net and loads say max body weight 16stone and weight it self 80-100kg.
    I'm 17stone and need something thats gonna take my weight plus 130kg.
    And dont feel like risking a bench falling under both weights lol!!!!
    Can you guys recommend a decent bench? Need's to be foldable though


    Thanks

    how about get the misses to get on all fours and use her :p
    to be fair getting a folding bench to take 200-250kg isnt going to be easy as thats a lot of force to be putting what will be pretty small hinges

    ahhh best let things smooth over then before you suggest it mate!
    thats the thing... unless you know anyone who can weld and get a custom one made up out of some steel section?

    The thing is that your wanting a sturdy bench but want it transportable but the manufacturers make it light as possible,it just goes against the idea of them Ash
