    Unhealthy sedentary fat beginner: Please help with equipment (specifically bench)

    Hi,

    I'm a chubby umpa lumpa. I sit in a chair all day, no exercise, can't make it to gym as they are to far away and always too busy to the point I can't get on any equipment at the only times I can go....

    I'm planning on makinga home gym outside on decking and using tarp to protect it from the weather.

    From my research on this forum, I've concluded I need the following.

    Adjustable FID bench
    Power rack (I think for safety spotting?)
    Olympic weight sets (barbells, dumbells, plates)
    Floor mat (protect wooden decking?)
    Cardio machine

    I'm currently on my first item to buy: The bench.

    As far as I'm aware, I need a bench that can

    use addons such as leg curl
    can take a lot of weight: preferably 1000lb (to represent it's safe)
    Is stable
    Will fit inside a power rack?? Do they not all fit inside or something?

    I have now narrowed it down to the following:

    Bodysolid GFID 71
    Ironmaster super bench (Not the pro as it's back ordered and doesn't say an estimated date, I could be waiting 5 years for all I know)
    Bodysolid GFID 31

    Everything else is out of stock that's good as far as I'm aware. I'm from the UK.

    I cannot ebay as I don't have a car to pick stuff up, and people don't normally deliver here for some reason. I've had a scan of both ebay and craigslist but nothing on craigslist in my area, and ebay just looks too expensive for 2nd hand products. Almost as if they are reselling an item they bought yesterday and trying to flip it for profit.....

    For reference:

    Height: 5ft 11"
    weight: 205lb
    Muscle: None
    Age: mid 20s.

    I can barely bench press (40kg x 10 reps). I can shoulder press (20kg x 10 reps). I can dumbbell curl (15kg x 10 reps) per arm.

    I've decided to commit to a home gym as I can barely walk for 10 minutes without severe back ache (I'm to fat with weak back muscles now)

    I'm severely unhealthy and willing to cash out for something I can use everyday to keep me healthy. I want to turn my health around. And I enjoyed weight lifting when I use to do it 7 years ago.

    What bench would you recommend I get? My limit for a bench is £400. Not sure if you need to know, but my limit for a power rack will be £1000 max. But this will be a purchase to come in a few months. I want the bench first to start getting use to a routine. And I don't think I'm in too much danger with my strength being low at the moment.
