Finding the best weight bench to suit your training

Weight benches are an essential piece of equipment for any facility and play a vital role in any weight training program. A bench will provide support when performing a range of strength exercises and as they can move between varying degrees of incline or decline, you’ll be able to focus on almost any muscle group safely and effectively.

The BLK BOX range of weight benches are suitable for all abilities, whether you are new to fitness or are an experienced athlete. Each bench provides a range of features, all designed to perform consistently over time, but choosing the one most suitable to you is important.

In this blog, we take a look at the features of each weight bench to help you make the right choice for your training needs.
