Preacher pad offers decent exercise form when you’re working on your biceps and forearms and is rolled at the top for more comfort. The bar of the roller pads for working the legs could be a bit wider for comfort and convenience so your legs could rest in the middle rather than on the edges or there could be an optional accessory opportunity for larger and thicker pads but the motion range is good for both preacher curl and leg attachment. Seat can be adjusted conveniently from decline to flat and different incline positions but not the military upright position. It usually ships quickly via Amazon and arrives very well packaged and requires a bit of assembly work that may take a few hours but is not a difficult task with the clear instructions provided. You can easily adjust the base of the posts for standard and olympic weights. As minor cons bench is a bit high and if you’re not tall your feet may not touch the ground when you’re lifting weights and you may need to put your feet on the bottom stand and it doesn’t come with transportation wheels and rubber bits on feet tend to fall off.
