A bench can be a central focus for almost all of your workouts. The first thing most people think of when they hear "Bench" is "Bench Press", but it can also be used for a multitude of other exercises to target your whole body - like box squats, rows and split squats. An adjustable bench takes this to the next level and will allow you to do seated shoulder press, incline press, skullcrushers, and much more.
Which bench is best for a home gym?
The two main benefits you get from a bench are versatility and space-saving. You can't go wrong with a flat bench for targeting your whole body, but if you want to take things up a notch, you can consider an adjustable bench. Our Adjustable Dumbbell Bench can be adjusted to multiple angles and conveniently folds away for storage. If you're an advanced lifter who lifts very heavy weights, check out the even sturdier FID Adjustable Bench.
What is a workout bench good for?
A bench can be used to train every muscle group in your body from shoulders to legs - seated shoulder press, bent over rows, split squats, box squats, bench press and more.
Is buying a gym bench a good investment?
A large majority of traditional bodybuilding exercises, such as bench press, need a bench to be performed effectively, so if bodybuilding is your goal, this should be a staple item in your home gym. If you have the space, there's really no reason why you shouldn't invest in a bench to make sure your workouts are efficient, optimised and safe.
