Factors We Considered

Features

The features you need in your weight bench are really going to depend on how you’re using it. Generally though, if you want to be able to do a variety of exercises, an adjustable bench is going to be the way to go. Here are some of the features we looked at.

  • Adjustability
  • Decline
  • Attachments
  • Foldability and portability
  • Size
  • Pad and comfort level

Stability and Safety

Stability is essential when considering a weight bench purchase. The bench should prevent wobbling and movement while making the user safer and feel confident with the bench they choose. These models are incredibly sturdy and can provide the support and durability athletes need when working out.

Construction: Frame and Pads

The materials used to construct the weight bench you choose should be top-quality and last for years. After all, you want to make sure the product will last, and that you get good value for your money. Look for weight benches that are made of stainless steel, not plastic or more flimsy materials that will likely break down pretty easily. We also looked at foam density and the overall grip on the pads – you don’t want to be slipping off!

Weight Limit

You need to make sure you choose a weight bench that can support your weight and the weight you are lifting. The weight capacity of the bench will probably increase alongside the price of the bench since more materials are going to be used to provide extra support.

Easy to Use and Set Up

Your weight bench should be user friendly and versatile. For adjustable benches, that means making it easy to switch positions and move the bench around. Set up is also crucial, especially for benches that require assembly. For benches that come with customization options like multiple pads, they should be easy to switch out.
