Features & Highlights
- Ladder Design – The Incline/Decline Adjustable Bench from Vulcan uses a ladder-style adjustment on the back, which tends to be faster and easier to use than a telescoping spine. The seat adjusts with a simple pop-pin. Some assembly is required.
- # of Adjustments – The bench offers 7 back adjustments and 5 seat adjustments for a total of 35 potential adjustment options. The back pad ranges from 0 degrees to 85 and the seat can adjust down to -20 degrees for decline movements.
- Pad/Seat Gap – There is a relatively small pad gap on this particular bench from Vulcan, which helps when performing flat bench press. Still, some users may find the gap to be uncomfortable/in the way depending on their height. If you perform a lot of flat bench presses, having a standalone flat bench as a companion piece may be a good idea.
- Pad Width – This bench offers a pad width of just under 12″ (11.8″), which will be comfortable for most users – 12″ is very common.
- Weight Limit – Vulcan does not state a weight rating for this bench, but most benches of this style and in this class offer ratings around 1,000lbs. I am confident this bench can handle the same.
- Not IPF Height – This bench doesn’t meet IPF height standards, standing at 18″ tall in the flat position, but it’s very close. Most users will be able to generate ample leg drive. The single-post front foot allows for better foot placement as well.
- Includes Wheels & Handle – This bench does offer a handle and wheels, which makes portability easy.
- Grippy Vinyl – This bench offers a textured vinyl that helps reduce slippage when benching.
- No Upright Storage – There is no built-in vertical storage feature on the Vulcan Incline/Decline Bench.
What They’re Saying at Vulcanstrength.com
The Vulcan Incline/Decline Adjustable Bench receives very positive, but limited feedback from users. With an average rating of 5/5, here are some of the things people have said at vulcanstrength.com:
- “Overall I think the quality is great for the money so I’ll give it a 5. I was a little concerned due the FID style and not having a post for it to sit level at 90 degrees, but this feels very sturdy. I like how wide the support plate is underneath the back. The vinyl is not very tacky, but I don’t mind that based on how plan you I use it. The design is great with the single post supporting the seat giving your feet plenty of room. First purchase from Vulcan and I must say I was impressed with the preorder available alert, accuracy of the initial ETA given (which many companies in all industries are struggling with) and how well it was packaged knowing that shipping was going to beat the snot out of it. The product was almost completely assembled and well protected within the box. I look forward to making more purchases in the near future! Thanks for producing quality product.”
- “Very well made, easy to move and adjust. Would purchase again.”
- “Great bench, very solid. Goes together quickly.”
- “The black powder coating is solid, but the welds are a bit rough and the chrome plating is questionable. Those are aesthetically annoying, but the build is still very impressive.”
