Cheap Equipment

Anyone want to guess how much? I got it at a thrift store.

slightly old York FTS-FXB minus the leg hold down attachment and one of the leg bolts. Dusty, some chipped paint, but otherwise intact, good upholstry.

Considering you must have gotten him for a steal of a price, I'd change the poor boy's name from "York FTS-FXB" to something a little more personable....


..sorry, couldn't resist....

Re: Cheap Equipment

Aren't you a little young to be lifting or surfing the internet w/o parental supervision?

I got floor model bench/slant board for $50. $20 at a thrift store might sound reasonable, but maybe not worth posting about. How about $5?

Re: Cheap Equipment

Since the flat bench retails for $180, I bet this retails for over $200. You probably got it for around $10.
