A workout bench, what should you pay attention to?

A workout bench, also known as 'fitness bench' or 'bench' is used in many strength exercises, usually in combination with weights, for example. These can be exercises for both your upper body and your lower body. The bench ensures that you can sit or lie down in the right position so that you can perform a workout correctly. So there are plenty of reasons to buy a workout bench! But what do you pay attention to when choosing a workout bench?

If you want to purchase a fitness bench, there are several points that you have to take into account. Here we list the five most important ones.
 

2. User capacity

Every workout bench has a maximum user capacity. This indicates how many kilograms the bench can carry. That is the weight of you as a user plus the weight of the accessories you use during your workout, such as dumbbells or barbells.
 
Also take into account your workout goals. Are you working towards lifting increasingly heavy weights? Then buy a bench with a high maximum user capacity so that you do not have to buy a new bench later on.

4. Padding

A good workout bench has a somewhat stiff padding, so that you do not slip easily. In addition, a bench should be comfortable without becoming too soft. A bench that is too soft has less stability.

Have you gone through all the points and do you know what your ideal workout bench looks like? Take a look at our range of workout benches and choose your perfect training bench!
