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: LINEX X634 Olympic Bench LINEX X629 Combo Bench
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!
