A review of the Weider weight bench

A 240 TC weight bench is a good choice for a Weider home gym. The bench is fully adjustable and very good for using strength equipment. A Weider crossbow can be added, but only when a certain level of body fitness has been achieved. The Weider lifting bench is perfect for someone beginning with weights.

Weight training

The adjustable bench is good for training with dumbbells. It is ideal to start with a few dumbbells and to acquire different weight sets over time. The 240 TC allows bench training in a flat position and then in a seated position. Some barbells and weights can be added on later. It is a complete gym equipment-Weider weight lifting bench. It is good to start with some flat and some inclined dumbbell press exercises.

Dumbbells and curls

The back of the bench can be raised to suit one’s needs. As advised by an online Weider professional, it is desirable that feet are firmly planted on the floor and that the head, shoulders and hips lie firmly on the weightlifting bench. Do a number of sets with the dumbbells in order to strengthen triceps and biceps, and then sit on the edge of the bench and do some curls.

Sturdy and comfortable

Curls are easy on this weight training bench because it has a Preacher curl attachment. Begin with some overhead shoulder press exercises, as bench presses have a set of Weider weights. There are four foam covered rollers for sticking your feet under so that you can do some leg developer exercises. The home weight bench is sturdy enough to do some step-up exercises holding dumbbells. Take care not to slouch and have safe limits.

Attractive finish

Weider weight benches have thick vinyl covered padding for a comfortable workout. The 240 TC Weider gym has an interchangeable Lat tower, so you can use this to do Lat pulldowns and triceps extensions. Leg curls and leg extensions are very comfortable with the four foam covered rollers. Consider this the best weight bench because of the easily adjustable incline and decline angles for any kind of weight bench exercise. The maximum weight for the user is a good 115 Kg. The bench is built very attractively in a red and black finish while the rest of the Weider gym equipment is in dark grey. Over a short period, one can develop the body to a good level and because of frequent use of the equipment, people call the gym their second Weider home. Final word Weight trainers believe that the 240 TC is great for anyone seeking tough Weider fitness. For a home gym, Weider is the right choice.
