Rogue Ab3 Review

When it comes to adjustable weight benches, the rogue ab3 is the top choice of many serious lifters. It’s pricey, but it also has a lot to offer; a hefty 11-gauge frame that can handle almost any bar load, lots of different back and seat pad positions, and a heavy-duty foot catch that locks you in during decline presses.

The pads are pretty nice, too, with a combination of firmness and comfortability. The grippy vinyl has a bit of a “leather” feel to it, and it does a great job of preventing you from sliding off the bench during a flat bench press. The AB-3 is also American-made, so you’re getting a premium bench that you can feel good about purchasing.

Unlike the cheaper AB-2, which has a large gap between the back and seat pads, the AB-3 has no such issue. This makes it ideal for those who want to use it as a flat utility bench and eliminates the need for a separate flat bench.

The AB-3 can be paired with a leg attachment for decline presses, making it a fully functional FID bench. It doesn’t have as many incline positions as the ABx, but it has enough to help you target your chest and shoulders in a variety of ways. Plus, it has a convenient handle and wheels that make it easy to move around your gym. The only thing missing is a feature to stand the bench upright for storage, but that’s a small sacrifice to make for such a solid and versatile weight bench.
