Without a doubt, the cornerstone of all strength training equipment is the free weight bench. Use it with a barbell or dumbbells. Use it in a power rack, smith machine, or use it on its own. It’s a fact. The freeweight bench is the core of any freeweight exercise program. Fitness Showcase carries freeweight benches and racks that have been regarded as the best available by both leading consumer reporting magazines and fitness magazines alike.
