Title : Universal Decline Bench

The surprisingly versatile, compact bench offers numerous core-strengthening exercises.

The simple, effective challenge of a free weight workout remains one of the most efficient ways to build strength and muscle mass. The Universal decline bench, from parent company Nautilus, offers a wide variety of core workouts, from sit-ups to twists and more. Users can choose from two decline positions, while eight-inch padded foam rollers keep feet comfortably and safely in place. The bench measures 17 by 23 by 45 inches (W x H x D) and has a 200-pound maximum user weight.

Consumer Review
Decent Product
SO I bought this incline bench for some good ab workouts, and all in all its not bad for the money. It arrive undamaged and on time. ( Which is always a plus) Like a previous review I too am 6′ tall and that really is about the max height. The padding on the bench is fairly comfortable. My only complaint is I dont think it is inclined enough. It has no adjusment so ive used a scrap piece of 4×4 to increase the incline. Other than that for the money I think its a good buy.
