The Best Adjustable Weight Benches

It’s sport season, and you want to get that body of yours looking like your favorite football, basketball, or hockey player. You don’t have time for the gym, or you are not into all of that frontin and flossin. Or, to be perfectly honest, your body is not “gym ready.”

I have got the perfect answer for you: a weight bench. Whether you want to tone your arms, abs, or a whole body workout, this is the item for you. The great thing about adjustable benches is you don’t need multiple benches. You can decline, flat, and incline with a quickness. Regardless of what level or type of exercise you are in the mood for, you can get it all done with this one piece of equipment. My only word of advice – if you live in Sherwood Park, make sure you get Sherwood Park Carpet Cleaning on standby to come in and clean up all the sweat that will surely be left on your carpet.

If you are wondering about which adjustable weight benches are the best, we have done all the work for you (you’re welcome). I have put together this really cool review to get you the information you need to get that six-pack…or as close to it as you’re going to get.

XMark FID Weight Bench

If you are one of those people who like to workout for two or three hours straight (go on, with your bad self), the XMark FID (XM-7604 ) is the ideal product for you. This adjustable weight bench boasts to having an ultra-thick 3” bench cushion that keeps your cushion nice and comfortable.

Also, if you get a little cray-cray with your workout, the bench is tear-resistant, thanks to the durable Duraguard vinyl. The weight capacity for this item is 1,500 lbs. The metal frame is protected by a scratch-resistant coating. We did notice that this weight bench is not as small and compact as the others in our review, which is something to consider if you are concerned about space.

So when you have someone over that you are trying to impress, your equipment (the weight bench….get your mind out of the gutter) won’t look tore up from the floor up. To keep your knees and feet comfortable while getting your exercise groove on, the rollers are oversized, vinyl-covered, and cushioned.

Ironmaster Super Bench Adjustable Weight-Lifting Bench

The first thing I noticed about the Ironmaster Super Bench Adjustable Weight-Lifting Bench is that it doesn’t look as comfortable as the previous one. Priced a little bit lower, this product also lets you change into one of 11 positions swiftly, like flat to incline. If you are into working out with your dumbells, you might want to consider this one.

A nice feature of this adjustable weight bench is that there are attachments available to give your workout more resistance. Moreover, the height of the seat can be changed to make you more comfortable, whether you are 5’6” or 6’5”.

You don’t have to worry about the seat moving around while you are working out, thanks to the adjustable ring that locks your position into place. Heavy duty padding gets you exercising in comfort. How great is that?

Buying Home Gym Flooring: What You Need to Know

For men, what home gym would be complete without a good, high-quality floor mat? Whether you love to do 200 stomach crunches every morning (seriously?), or you are into yoga (flexibility is very important….we’ll leave it at that), a mat to protect you and your floor is a necessity. You want one that is thick, comfortable, and will not slide from one side of the room to the other.

A good gym mat also protects your exercise equipment. You have paid all that money for a weight bench or elliptical trainer. You make one wrong move, not focusing on your workout, and you roll right off the machine (we aren’t laughing…we promise we aren’t). To save yourself from injury, you need a mat.

If you want information on which ones are the best, lucky for you, here is a review of the top home gym flooring. Curious? Then you should read on. You’ll thank me later.

XMark Fitness XMat Ultra Thick Gym Flooring

Right off, what we loved about the XMark Fitness XMat Ultra Thick Gym Flooring is that it possesses .5-inches of thickness. With the length being six feet and the width being four feet, you have more than enough room to put this gym mat under any type of home exercise equipment.

The bottom contains non-skid material, so this baby isn’t going anywhere once you place it on your floor. If you are looking for gym flooring that is heavy, strong, and thick, look no further than XMark Fitness XMat Ultra Thick Gym Flooring.

IncStores ¼”Tough Rubber Roll (4’ x 10’)

If you like your home décor to match, you will be happy to know that the IncStores ¼” Tough Rubber Roll comes in black with specks in stylish colors, like blue, green, tan, and red. Unlike the previous one, the length is 10 feet long. You’ve got plenty of room to do whatever you feel like it. This baby is portable and easy to clean, thanks to high-quality rubber.

We need to let you know that these gym flooring mats aren’t lightweight. For instance, this mat weights 60 lbs. Additionally, unlike the previous one, there is no non-skid material on the bottom. Therefore, you will have to use double-sided carpet tape to keep this bad boy in place.

If you want to set up your home gym in your garage or on your back patio, this mat works outside as well as inside. When you need to trim it, just pull out your utility knife and get to trimming. It really is a simple piece of equipment that does so much. If you are looking for gym flooring that is eco-friendly? Good, because this gym flooring is made from recyclable rubber.
