The Marcy Diamond Elite Olympic Weight Bench has been designed to offer more than just the usual flat bench press exercise.

The angle of the back rest can be adjusted through four different angles depending on which area of the chest you want to focus on. If you want a decline then you can simply remove the support bar and lower the back rest until it lies against the main frame.

The angle that the main frame on the Marcy Diamond Elite bench has been designed at also provides a benefit, as it allows you to lift the barbell into a position that won’t bump against it much quicker, while still making it easy to return the bar to the rack when you finish with your set.


Incline, decline, flat and shoulder press bench positions

If you want to perform flat or different levels of incline at either a 30 or 45 degree angle with the Marcy Diamond Elite bench then you can slot the support bar into the rests that are built into both sides of the main frame.

To make sure you are positioned on the bench in the best way to make un-racking and racking the bar easier when bench pressing or performing military presses, Marcy have designed the Diamond Olympic Weight Bench with four seat positions.

These can be adjusted by pulling the hand wheel underneath until the pin isn’t through one of the guide holes and adjusting the bench to where you need it.

Aside from the bench, there are many useful design features to the barbell support frame.

There are the two sets of barbell supports that can be used as both a rack for the barbell when you are about to perform the exercise, and a safety feature with the longer bar catchers when positioned just at the bottom of your range of motion to make sure the bar doesn’t drop below a certain point.

On the back of the frame there are also two barbell supports at the top that can be used to support a barbell when you want to perform free weight squat exercises or even standing overhead presses.

As the name implies, the Marcy Diamond Elite Olympic bench press system has been designed with Olympic weight plates in mind, and there are two storage holders added to the main frame to help keep these tidy when not in use.

Preacher curls and leg development

As well as the usual bench press exercises, the Marcy Diamond Elite Olympic Weight Bench has also been designed with a preacher curl pad and leg development section at the front.

The preacher curl pad can have the height adjusted using a locking pin underneath, or even removed if you find it gets in the way of your bench press.

The resistance for this and the leg developer is created by a weight plate holder underneath the preacher curl arm which can hold both standard and Olympic plates.

When you want to use the preacher curl or leg developer just remember to slide out the spring loaded locking catch in front of the preacher curl locking pin to allow free movement.

Leg extensions and hamstring curls can both be performed with the Marcy Diamond Elite Olympic Bench depending on your leg position against the padded rollers.

For these exercises, it’s often easier when using the leg developer to remove the preacher curl section to give you an increased range of motion and better muscle development.


Weight supplied with the Marcy Diamond Elite Olympic Bench

With this bench press having such a high maximum weight limit (270kg for pressing movements using the bench inc. user weight), this is one of the strongest designs available for use in your home gym.

Weight plates and a full weight plate set are provided to make sure you can start using all the exercise features straight away when the bench is all setup. The barbell is 7ft long but the 15kg version rather than the full 20kg so make sure to take that into account when keeping track of your lifting progress.
