Serious weightlifting requires a serious bench

A quality bench will be the real workhorse of your gym. They can be used for dumbbell work or in your power rack. The benches that have optional attachments can be almost like a multi-gym. So your weight bench will see a lot of action, that is why it is critical to get something that can stand up to the rigors of regular training.

The most basic bench is the flat bench. These were the most common type of benches in the early days of weight training. Ironically as strength training has reverted back to an emphasis on basic movements like bench press, flat benches have undergone the resurgence. But for those that want some variety, benches were designed that could also go incline. This allowed you to do different exercises in a variety of angles – like incline bench press. The design of these flat incline benches is relatively simple, so they can be heavy duty.

The incline benches were further developed to incorporate decline angles. These benches are commonly referred to as FID benches (Flat, Incline, Decline). For serious home gym users or personal trainers that are tight on space, the FID bench is very popular. You get to perform a variety of exercises from the one workout bench.

What's wrong with a cheap bench?

If you are committed to your training, you will need to invest in a quality bench. Although they might be twice the price or even more than a cheap bench, it is a sound investment that will pay dividends down the line. Since your bench sees a lot of work, the quality of materials in a budget bench will only last a year or two if you are lucky.

It is crucial for the bench to have quality upholstery. If you are lifting heavy, the cheap foam simply compresses and doesn’t offer any comfort. Secondly, the padding is attached to a timber board. On cheap benches, this board cracks making the bench almost useless.

What is more concerning is a bench that uses poor quality materials combined with a poor design. This is dangerous. Often a large portion of the load is resting on a cheap pin or a welded joint between two pieces of paper thin steel. The factories that produce these benches aren’t liable for any injuries caused, so they will overstate their load capacities. If you are a serious trainer moving some serious weight, this is an accident waiting to happen.

 

We stock the best & most functional benches in Australia

This is why we have the best range of benches in Australia. All our benches are designed and produced by international companies selling in both Europe and the United States. They have undergone independent testing and certification for their intended use. More importantly, they have been around for years and taken plenty of punishment in gyms around the world.

In particular, this is important in FID benches. Their increased functionality means that there are more moving parts. The more moving parts often mean the potential for play and instability. Whether it is Barbarian, Ironmaster, Megatec or Powertec; all these decline benches are built like tanks.

The other reason we are known for stocking the best benches is the fact that our benches are the most functional. Several of our benches have optional attachments available, bringing you even more versatility to your gym.

A new age for the humble bench - versatility with attachments...

Whenever you talk about versatility on a workout bench the Ironmaster Super Bench immediately comes to mind. It easily has the longest list of fair dinkum attachments – by fair dinkum I mean you can actually use them for their intended purpose. So the leg extension will feel like a standalone leg extension machine.

When you start adding attachments to the Super Bench it morphs from being a solid FID bench into a multi-gym. Whether it is a home gym or a studio, you need to pack a lot of exercises into each piece of equipment; the Ironmaster Bench will always be first on your list.

The Barbarian BB-9050-2, Megatech, and Powertec benches also feature some handy optional attachments too. They have leg extension and curl, leverage preacher curl, pec fly, and dip attachments. These are all quality exercises that can spice up your workout routine.

Quality guaranteed all you do is choose a bench that's right for you

My final word is that we probably have too many benches. It was easier back in the day when we only offered three benches. Today some people get bamboozled by the variety on offer. So my advice is simple; don’t over think the decision. By being selective with the brands that we stock, we have made your decision simple.

All our benches are good quality and will last forever. They have all been properly designed, so will work properly for their intended use. So whichever bench you choose, you will be able to train hard for many years to come. If you need some assistance or guidance, we will only be too happy to guide you to the bench that will work best for your intended purpose.
