Adjustable Cap Barbell Deluxe Utility Bench Review

One of the best purchases that I have made since starting our own home gym was finally breaking down and buying an adjustable bench.  I looked for months before purchasing a 0-90 bench and every time that I did, I decided that it was just too much money at the time and that I could work around not having an incline or seated military press station.  It seemed like the only option would be for me to save up 500+ dollars for something from either Rogue or Elitefts and until I had the money, I would just keep saving.  All the other benches on the market were either too flimsy looking or just didn’t have a good weight capacity.  On the other hand, instead of a 500+ dollar 0-90 bench (more than my Rogue SML-1squat stand) I honestly would have much rather bought a deadlift or safety squat bar.

Cap Barbell Deluxe Utility Bench Review Specs

I happened to stumble upon the Cap Barbell Deluxe Utility Bench one day on amazon and was surprised that it was the #1 ranked Best Seller in adjustable benches.  I had some how over looked this bench and I am really glad that I took the time to check out the details.  Here are the details that stood out to me and got my attention

  1. Recommended maximum weight capacities for the bench are 500 lb (flat position, including user) and 400 lb (inclined positions, including user).
  2. Full-size utility bench; Assembled specifications are 53″L x 27″W x 45″H (in upright position)
  3. Price: 124.83 + FREE SHIPPING

The number one spec that I would look for when reviewing adjustable weight benches was the max weight capacity.  This bench had one of the higher weight capacities that I have found online in an economical price point.  You can definitely bet that there is a positive correlation between weight capacity and price.  I needed something that I wouldn’t be questioning if the bench would support me while training.  I have to say, I think the bench is rated a bit low, as I have exceeded the incline position weight capacities with ZERO problems.

Other Key Points

I hate to assemble things.  I really hate it.  Especially junk.  The assembly was extremely easy with the Cap Deluxe Utility Bench, like the other products that I have purchased it took less than an hour.  The bench is extremely stable, if it weren’t for me being extremely anal about bench width then I would consider benching with this as a flat bench.  Another nice touch to the bench is the band pegs.  This allows for numerous exercise variations that you won’t find with other benches.  Not something that I was looking for initially but it is a really nice option.


Final Thoughts

If you are looking for the best adjustable bench out there for your money, I firmly believe you won’t find anything better than the Cap Barbell Deluxe Utility Bench.  It is in a totally different class compared to the other, lower quality benches that you find littered through amazon.  This is by far one of the best purchases that I have made for my home gym.  After getting this bench I really don’t know why I waited so long on this piece of equipment.
