Weight benches are the unsung heroes of the gym. We said what we said. Allow us to explain.

If you've ever tried to do a free weight workout without a proper weight bench, you quickly realized you don't get far without one. And if you've ever wobbled your way through your lift on a rickety weight bench or (gasp!) had to use a torn or tattered bench, you know what we know. A weight bench can make, or break, your workout.

Cue the violins because we're giving the weight bench its due. Thankfully, Amazon gets it too with big deals like nearly 40% off on Flybird's (best-selling) adjustable weight bench or $150 off Bowflex's 5.1s weight bench. Oh, and there's plenty more.

We've established that a quality weight bench can seriously add to your at-home workout as much as the right equipment and weights.  When curating our list, we looked for benches made from high-quality materials. We'd rather pay a bit more for a bench we can keep for years over a less expensive option that won't pull its weight. (Sorry for the gym joke.)

We took into account how we'd use our weight bench before choosing between fixed and adjustable options. In general, we prefer adjustable benches like the 4.6-star-rated Keppi's adjustable weight bench, $210 after coupon (reduced from $400), though they tend to cost more than fixed bench alternatives. 

When choosing your bench, make sure to measure your space and/or the equipment and area where you'll use your bench. And if your bench needs to be stored or moved when not in use, consider folding options or benches with wheels.

Flybird Adjustable Fast-Folding Weight Bench


We can't say enough good things about Flybird's adjustable weight bench, currently on sale on Amazon. One of the most trusted names in fitness, Flybird has been known for its quality weight benches for over 20 years. Made from commercial thickness steel, this bench features a weight capacity of 800 pounds. The seven back positions and three seat positions ensure a full body workout every time you step into your gym. A great bench for those who don't have a designated gym space, this folds easily and can be stored in a closet or a corner.

Stand out feature: While many gyms stand on two legs, which often leads to a wobbly workout, Flybird's adjustable bench uses a triangular structure on two legs leading to a more stable (and safer) workout.
