    Homemade Preacher Bench??

    Anyone ever make their own preacher bench? Doesn't seem like it'd be too difficult, but I'm not exactly sure on what angles are used. Anyone have any advice?

    Before I bought a preacher's bench, I just used an old bench to hold the bar and used the preacher pad and bench combo that is common with most benches. It did the job.

    I don't have the preacher pad attachment.

    I wonder if other benches' preacher pad attachements would fit into my bench's attachment point?

    I have seen them at several different angles depending on who makes them as well... I know my gym has one that is a 45degree (says on it 45 degree preacher curl), and 2 others that are closer to 60degrees..

    If it's a standard attachment hole than you can buy an attachment from NYBB http://newyorkbarbells.com/95020.html and I think pretty much any regular attachment will work

    sorry for the delay but here it is

    http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q168/nismoss/ppp.jpg

    looks rough but does the job. i actually used an old chair & bolted the pad to it on an angle, pretty steep about 75 deg. the triangles are mdf thats hold the whole thing at that angle. u stand up doin it with ur legs on each side of the chair.

    Get an arm blaster, it provides an effect similar to a preacher bench.
