I recently went into therapy to overcome my bench press-a-phobia (not really, I’ve never been to therapy, though clearly it couldn’t hurt.) Now that I am actually working on the said lift, I found that I need a bench. Imagine that. As I have stated before, I live in a small town, and if your equipment cannot be procured at WalMart, the only other option is the internet. Ordering heavy fitness equipment on the internet means huge shipping prices. Luckily, I inherited my “I can make that out of junk I found in the garage” personality trait from my dad, so I made myself a bench from junk I (mostly) found in the garage.
