At Marcy, we offer a variety of utility weight benches, from flat benches to adjustable weight bench options that make them easy to store when your workout is complete. Each Marcy utility bench is built for durability, reliability, and comfort. Take a look at our entire collection!
Why you need a Utility Bench
One of the best ways to stick with your fitness regimen in the long run is to vary your workouts. That doesn’t mean you need a lot of gym equipment; rather, invest in workout equipment that supports a wide array of exercises.
A Marcy utility bench is exactly this type of fitness equipment. Use it to perform chest presses with a dumbbell or bench press with a barbell if you also own a weight rack. Do sets of incline or decline pushups by placing your hands or feet on the bench.
A utility bench can also help you perform triceps dips or give you a comfortable seat as you get in your sets of bicep curls, shoulder raises, and triceps extensions. You could design plenty of workouts with just a utility bench and a few dumbbells!
Choose the Right Kind of Marcy Utility Bench
As you review the different utility weight benches available at Marcy, you’ll recognize that each bench offers different features for your fitness goals. Here are a few different types of benches to consider:
Flat Utility Bench: The flat utility bench is the perfect partner to your weight rack and barbell set, especially if you want to add bench pressing into your workout regimen. Grab some dumbbells and take a seat on a flat utility bench like the Marcy SB-315 to perform lifts that isolate your biceps, shoulders, triceps, and deltoids. You can also use this bench to enhance a variety of bodyweight exercises.
Adjustable Utility Bench: The SteelBody STB-10105 is a versatile utility bench. Adjustable benches allow you to flatten or lift the back support, giving you the ability to perform a new range of incline exercises. Now you can add more exercises to your workouts or make your existing exercises a little easier or more difficult.
The SteelBody STB-10105 weight lifting bench only goes into the flat and incline position, but other Marcy benches also go into the decline position. Products in the Steelbody by Marcy line generally have a higher weight capacity due to their sturdy steel frames. The weight bench reviews for the SteelBody STB-10105 are just as strong as the bench itself!
Multi-Purpose Utility Bench: For even more fitness capability, look to the utility bench. Weight benches, like the Marcy Deluxe SB-350, provide additional features. The SB-350 Utility bench includes a padded leg developer. Throw some plates on the weight post, tuck your legs in, and you have your very own leg extension and leg curl machine to strengthen your quads and hamstrings.
Ab Bench / Slant Board: Target your core with an Ab Bench (also known as a slant board.) Ab Benches are set to a decline position, making it easy and fast to do decline sit-ups. The padded high density foam on the Slant Board makes your upper body workout comfortable whether you’re using free weights or bodyweight to workout.
