The training with a weight bench becomes more and more popular in Germany. This kind of training is ideal for beginners, persons with physical restrictions or performance-oriented sportsmen for muscle building, for rehabilitation after injuries or for weight reduction. The free weight training is a popular workout in order to improve the coordinative abilities. It provides the advantage that the so called supporting muscles and muscle fibres are trained as well as the isolated muscle groups. Doing equipment training, you often only reach the isolated muscles.

If you are already looking for an appropriate weight bench, you will notice soon that there is a large selection of different weight benches in different price classes. Choosing the appropriate weight bench among this selection of different weight benches is extremely difficult. In order to find your ideal weight bench, we give you an overview, which features of a weight bench are of enormous importance so you can start your training with fun and motivation.

Hence flat benches are mainly suitable for simple exercises.
