A weight bench, along with an accompanying weight rack (also called a barbell crutch) is the cornerstone of any home gym. This is especially true if you are seeking to improve strength and want to tone or build muscle. A high-quality weight lifting bench allows you to perform tried and true strength exercises, including bench press, back squats, and front squats.
At Marcy, our selection of weight benches provides you with many different options, so you can get the features you want at a price you can afford.
Best Features of Home Weight Bench Products
What is the best weight bench for your needs? As you begin shopping for this important piece of equipment, consider these important features:
Sturdy material: Your weight bench and weight rack need to be able to hold up against heavy weights and tough workouts. As you get stronger, the weight on the bar will increase. Our Marcy weight benches can handle the heat of even your toughest workout. Additionally, the high-density foam in our benches will provide you with extra support and reduce muscle fatigue as you lift.
Olympic and Standard Weight Benches: Before you make your purchase, decide if you want a weight bench and weight rack that meets Olympic or standard protocols. Olympic weight benches, like the Marcy MD-879, can typically handle loads up to 300 pounds, while a standard set, like this Marcy Diamond Elite MD-389, hold up to 200 pounds. If you already own a weight set and barbell, check to see if it is standard or Olympic, so you can choose a matching weight bench.
Adjustable Weight Benches: All of our workout benches at Marcy are fully adjustable, which allows you to program more exercises into your workout schedule and target specific muscles. For example, adjust to a flat weight bench to perform a traditional bench press and then elevate the seat to add incline presses to your routine.
Folding Weight Benches: A weight bench and weight rack, along with your barbell and weight set can take up quite a bit of space in your home. If you are looking for a space-saving option, choose one of Marcy’s folding workout benches, like the Marcy MWB-20100. These benches and workout racks fold up for easy storage after your workout.
Leg Developer: Get the most out of your weight bench with the addition of a leg developer, which allows you to add weighted leg extensions and leg curls to your fitness routine. The leg developer will help you speed up the development of your quads and hamstrings, so you’ll notice new definition and hit back squat records in no time. Check out the Marcy MWB-5146.
Preacher Curl Pad: Don’t skip arm day. Choose a weight bench, like the Marcy Deluxe MKB-957, with a preacher curl pad, so you can perform bicep curls, triceps extensions, and more. The simple addition of a preacher curl pad will help you isolate and build these important upper body muscles.
Weight lifting benches offer so many advantages to your weightlifting sessions that you will be missing out if you aren’t using one. Take a look at all our Marcy weight benches today.
