How safe do you feel lifting weights on a bench that rattles or shakes when you sit down. Not very. The Body Solid GFID225 bench is commercial rated and like it’s name, very solid and stable. You will find this is about $50 more than other good folding benches, but what a difference in quality and stability. It has a lifetime warranty, so it actually ends up cheaper than buying more benches over the years. I have been using this bench for 3 years without it showing any signs of wear. The pads are thick and yet firm enough to not lose base when doing a press or wide flies. You can vary the bench incline to better target your muscle group. If you search the web, you can find a bench workout for most every muscle group. I prefer free weights for home workouts, plus they have a smaller footprint than barbells or machines. I have used the PowerBlock dumbell system for over a decade and they still do the job. They key is clean movement over high weights.

My workout approach is accessibility over escaping to the Gym. No matter how much I like it at the Gym, I never stick with getting over there…especially with a busy family. Plus, there is the gym membership contract. I did design work for Icon Health & Fitness years ago. I got some pretty good deals on their workout machines; you name it I had it at home. But eventually, they all ended up as clothes hangers over time – no matter what my New Years resolution was. For me, the only workouts that work are the ones I do. My workout bench and weights are where I spend the most time, in my office. When I need a break, I can walk a few steps and do some super-sets until muscle fatigued, or speed it up and add plyometrics for better cardio. Then rest sipping on a protein shake while working on the computer…and feeling good about sitting for a while again as long as I broke a sweat. This does not replace hard-core 1-2 hour long sessions. But it works for me. And when I am done, I can fold and roll it away…almost out of sight 🙂 The PowerBlocks are small enough to hide away if I wanted as well.
