I can't believe what great information I've gotten on this board!
I've narrowed my search to 2 benches. Since we live out in the boonies, 3 hours from a fitness store, and the free shipping is a big plus to us, we're looking at these two Linex benches:

We're not going to be into heavy body building per se, but are serious about getting strong and healthy, so I'm thinking for the $80 savings, I'd like to go with the combo bench. Plus it has a lat pull down that is also appealing. Question:
What's the difference between Standard weight plates and Olympic weight plates? Is the hole size standardized?
Thanks so much for your opinons and information!
