I have an old barbell and bench, but don't know how much i can load it with, it has a diameter of almost an inch. What do you people think?
If I recall my old York set correcly, a 1 inch bar can be loaded to 250 lbs.
Most benches, even the cheap ones should have no trouble holding that up.
If you have the manufacturer's name, you might be able to look it up on the 'net or give them a call.
No it's an old shitty bench i got second hand, or fourth hand, looks like shit. Gona search it for some manufacturers name.
