Adding a good weight bench to your home gym can take your workout potential to a whole new level. With so many to choose from though, the difficulty comes in deciding which one is best for you.
Are weight benches worth it?
There is no denying that a weight bench is an essential piece of equipment for anyone who is serious about strength training. The York collection is renowned for its high quality, stable and robust benches and, along with being the first choice of many gyms, York is the perfect brand of choice for any home gym. Having pioneered the home weight lifting and fitness market since their founding in 1932, today, York Barbell is still a world leader in the market.
What type of weight bench is best?
The York range of weight benches is an impressive one. Whatever your strength training goals are, there is a suitable model for you. With so many to choose from, it’s important that you consider your training objectives, your intended training routine, the weights you intend to use and the space you have available before investing in your bench.
Which York weight bench should I choose?
Having considered all of the above points, let’s take a brief look at a few of the York weight bench collection. The York B501 bench is a versatile unit which boasts a number of great features, including barbell retaining hooks to safely house your bar whilst you change your weights, butterfly arms for chest flyes, 3 back rest position adjustments from flat to incline and a leg developer for your quads and hamstrings. This quality bench is easy to store as it folds flat, making it perfect for home use. If you're looking for something slightly smaller, without the butterfly arms, the York B500 is a great option. The York dumbbell weight bench black edition is a nice looking unit with 6 easily interchangeable training positions. Its thick padded backrest allows for comfort while you train and its handy storage space under the bench accommodates three pairs of dumbbells. For barbell training, simply position it under a rack, cage or stands.
Whichever York bench you choose, you can be assured that you will be getting a high quality, durable piece of equipment which has been built to last.
