The Olympic Flat Bench: A Classic Built Legend Strong

The Flat Olympic Bench (3105) from Legend Fitness

The classic Olympic Flat Bench might seem like one of those “if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen ‘em all” pieces of strength equipment. After all, the bench press is probably one of the first things that comes to mind when you think about strength training. And all Olympic Flat Benches are the same, right? Nope!

What makes the Legend Fitness Olympic Flat Bench different?

First things first, the Legend Fitness 3105 is fully welded 11 gauge American steel. Some might say it’s over-built. We say it’s built Legend Strong. Regardless of what you think, our Olympic Flat Bench was developed to only need bolts to connect the pad to the frame, and that’s only because welding upholstered foam doesn’t really work all that well… so we hear.

Because it’s fully welded there are no loosening bolts to worry about tightening over and over. So no matter how much weight you pull per rep, there’ll be no shimmy or wobble when you’re lifting. That’s important to us, both from a safety standpoint and a durability one. The less maintenance a piece needs, the better.

Speaking of better, the 3105 has two polymer-coated bar catches: a tall set for easy racking, and a lower set for safety. The polymer coating helps protect the knurling on your bar and dampens noise a little bit. We’ve also added polymer wear guards up the sides of the posts to help protect the finish during plate changes (because we know everyone leans their plates right there).

The footprint of our Olympic Flat Bench is 48 inches by 49 1/2 inches, which makes it small enough for a garage gym or smaller athletic training center. The bench pad measures 10 1/2 inches wide, which is wide enough for proper support, but not so wide that it gets in the way during reps. It’s made of dense foam coated in 32-ounce top-stitched upholster to stand up to repeated abuse. It sits 17 inches up from the floor to accommodate users of all statures.

Like all other Legend Fitness equipment, this piece is available in all 31 of our standard powder coat colors with your choice of over 80 upholstery colors to coordinate. If that’s not enough, you can opt for a two-tone pad and custom embroidered wear guard to really make it your own. Really, the only thing the Legend Fitness Olympic Flat Bench is missing is plate storage. But we’ve got that covered!

Adding plate storage to your Olympic Flat Bench.

If you’re looking for an option with attached plate storage, we have two options: the Olympic Flat Bench with Plate Storage (3150) and the Pro Series Olympic Flat Bench (3240).

However, if you’re not looking to sacrifice too much space to add plate storage, we recommend adding a Plateholder/Organizer (3173) to your space. It has five Olympic pegs and sleeves for two bars, but only a 26-inch square footprint. Separate plate and bar storage helps you maximize the space you have if you have limited room. Don’t need to store a bar? We’ve got you covered there too, with the Olympic Peg Plateholder (3193), which has a footprint of just 18 by 18 inches, and the Olympic A-Frame Plateholder (3126) which has a 33 1/2 by 18 inch footprint.
