How to Choose the Best Weight Bench for Your Home Gym
The best weight bench for your home or garage gym should be considered carefully because it is the centerpiece of your gym.
It is the first piece of equipment you purchase when you’re assembling your home or garage gym.
Invest in Your Weight Bench
If you want to save money building a home gym, I have to say it: The weight bench is not the place to cut corners and save a few bucks.
Your weight bench is the central foundation for any other workout equipment you purchase.
Power racks, cages, and stands all require a bench, and some workouts require the usage of a bench by itself.
It may seem like a bench is a simple thing to purchase. It doesn’t appear to be fancy and there’s no need for bells and whistles, so you may feel inclined to grab the cheapest bench available.
Don’t be cheap!
These benches can, and will, fall apart on you with use. Padding pops out, legs become wobbly, and parts will begin to rust. Pretty soon, you’ll have to buy a new one.
Rather than buying a cheap bench just to get you through, it’s better to think about how your investment will work in the long term.
A good bench is a one-time investment. A cheap one will have you buying another one quick.
If you use it properly and maintain it well, you’ll probably never have to purchase another one. It’s worth spending a little more now to avoid spending a lot later.
What Characteristics To Look For in Weight Benches – 4 Core Factors
If you’re trying to pick the great benches from the bad ones, it can be difficult to tell the difference.
There’s no shortage of overpriced garbage flooding the market, and you need to be able to distinguish that garbage from the benches that are really worth the money.
When investing in a weight bench, there are four core considerations you should be making:
Weight Bench Safety
Safety is the most important. This bench needs to be strong enough to accommodate your weight, plus the weight you’re lifting.
If you weigh 200 pounds, the bench needs to be able to accommodate double your weight, or more.
Always look at the weight capacity or max weight rating. A good weight bench should have at least 500 lbs to 1000 lb weight limit. The best weight benches have up to 1500 lbs.
You need your bench to be stable and secure to the ground. The material used to construct the frame should be rustproof and solid.
Over time, cheap metals will warp or bend, causing your bench to become uneven.
Rusted benches lose their integrity as the metal becomes brittle, and may even collapse.
Do you want your bench to collapse while you’re holding a 200-pound barbell above your chest?
A quality bench will be very heavy because of its solid metal construction. You want something that requires minimal assembly, having as many parts welded together as possible.
Every individual component you have to install yourself can create a weak point in the event that the bolts loosen.
Many weight benches have bolted components, and it’s important that you regularly check these components to be sure that they’re fastened tightly and that the bolts remain in good condition.
Weight Bench Comfort
If you have to lay on this bench an extended period of time performing a strenuous activity, you don’t want it to give you a backache.
Benches that have improper or insufficient padding can actually cause or worsen back injuries.
Look for thicker dense padding to save your arse and back from pain.
The weights you’re holding will cause you to sink further down into the bench, because you become heavier while you hold them.
A good bench should have enough padding to keep your body away from the backboard even when you’re holding a large amount of weight.
The Durability of the Weight Bench
Quality materials last a lot longer than cheap ones. This is the same across the board for all materials used to construct your weight bench.
Bad padding isn’t dense, too soft, and you’ll sink right into it.
You’ll be able to feel that flat piece of metal or plywood, or worse, particle board, right against your back if the padding is low quality. If the padding is covered by thin fabric and isn’t sewn very well, the cover will split and tear, revealing the foam beneath, which will promptly break down because it is exposed.
This can lead to your padding completely falling out and ruining your weight bench.
Make sure your bench is coated or powder coated so it won’t rust or corrode.
This is especially important if your home gym is in an area that gets hot, such as a garage.
Weight Bench Versatility
Flat benches are great for smaller racks and cages, but what if you want a full range of motion or more versatility?
Will you be able to use this bench to do a variety of complex exercises?
Consider getting an adjustable weight bench, one that adjusts to incline, flat and decline positions.
When you can set the incline on your own, you’ll be able to get a lot more out of your workout.
It depends on how you intend to use the bench, but you may find that it’s worth spending a few more dollars for an adjustable bench that will expand your options.
What features should I avoid in my search for the perfect weight bench?
There are two features you should avoid when you are choosing the best weight bench for your gym!
Peg or pin adjustments – peg or pin style adjustments on an FID or adjustable incline bench are, unfortunately, occasionally, a point of failure.

Weight Bench FAQs, Tips and Basic Knowledge
