With adjustable benches, the backrest and seat position can be changed many times. This allows you to do abdominal and back exercises on the weight bench in addition to classic weight training and train muscle groups even more effectively.

What to look out for when buying a Bench

The market is flooded with cheap products from Asia - the quality of these rattletrays usually falls by the wayside.

The quality of these cheap upholstery products is usually inferior. The workmanship leaves a lot to be desired, for example in the upholstery: seams, filling and cover material are of inferior quality, and with regular use, these cheap upholsteries in the seat and backrest usually do not have a long service life.


Before buying, you should consider the following points - then your money is certainly well invested:

  • The permissible total weight should be at least 220 kg - otherwise heavyweight athletes will quickly reach the load limit of the bench
  • Wide legs. They provide stability during your workout
  • In the best case your bench is made of robust steel and welded in high quality
  • Is the bench adjustable? In the best case it should be adjustable up to 90 degrees. This way you can optimally train your shoulders and arms in an upright position
  • Optional: Does the bench have built-in roles? So you can move the bench more easily and adapt it to your training environment
