Weight Benches

Weight Benches are an indispenable piece of equipment for weight training.

In the gym, weight benches tend to be dedicated to one particular exercise, such as incline bench pressing, shoulder pressing etc. For the gm at home, they tend to be adjustable in order to cater for as many exercise variations as possible.

For those who wish to use a weights bench for training at home we would like to offer two very important pieces of advice.

Firstly, if exercising alone with a barbell be mindful of your strength level and lift to within your capability, using a barbell poundage that you are confident of being able to return to the catchers which are attached to the bench. Getting stuck under a heavy barbell is not desirable. You may wish to consider using dumbells for sessions when you are without a training partner or don`t have someone close at hand to assist you.

Secondly, when purchasing your weight bench with a kit we suggest that you spend as much as you can on the bench itself. We`ve known first time buyers selecing a cheap bench so that they can buy a large impressive weights kit. This is not the best way to do this. Spend more of your budget on the weights bench and opt for a modest sized weight kit to start with. As you get stronger, and you surely will, then you can buy more weight plates. And having bought a good weight bench at the outset means that you will not have to endure the cost of buying a second, better one as you outgrow the cheaper one.

One weight training bench that stands out for being terrific value for money is the DKN Heavy Duty Utility Bench. For the money it`s hard to beat, great for dumbbell workouts and for use with a power rack. In a similar vein we`d also suggest looking at the Inspire Fitness SCS Bench, very sturdy and smartly finished, and the design of the front leg makes it far easier for picking up and returning dumbbells to the ground.
