Weider Incline Weight Bench Review 2017

Updated on April 04, 2017

Joe Weider’s name remains one of the most well-known and trusted in fitness and his line of weight benches are well regarded for their quality and functionality. Today’s Weider benches make a nice addition to any home gym. Their build quality and versatility allow you to target the full range of muscles while breezing through your routine comfortably and safely.

Here we’ll look at both the Weider 225 L and do a Weider Pro 350 L review to try and determine the best overall bench.

Weider Pro 225 L

The Weider Pro 225 Weight Bench is as sharp looking a bench as you’ll find anywhere. Sometimes manufacturers will hide their shortcomings behind a dazzling design but in this case both function and form work together. Wide, low and comfortable without being squishy the 225 L will accommodate all body types and a variety of exercises. Bring your dumbbells and ambition.

Key features include:

  • Straightforward assembly
  • Simple and effective incline/decline adjustment
  • Compatible with an array of Weider racks and cage systems
  • 4 roller leg and ankle restraint for incline stability and abdominal exercises

The Weider Ultimate Body Works home gym provides you with so much more than a simple workout bench. This is actually a complete gym in one unit. It provides you with dozens of exercise options by way of the cables and your bodyweight. Four resistance bands gives you the potential to increase the resistance by 50 pounds. The cable and pulley system allows you to exercise through a more varied range of motion than traditional resistance methods.

The Weider Ultimate Body Works has a full length padded bench and a secure foot plate. Padded, sweat free handle grips allow for a firm, secure grip. The unit folds away for secure and compact storage.


  • 50+ exercises
  • Angle adjustable bench
  • Compact


  • Slide mechanism may not be smooth

Weider Pro 225L vs. Weider Pro 350L: Side by side

  • Best Value - From an FID perspective the 225 will handle everything the Pro 350 L can and does so for about 20% less money. It’s perfectly suited to all manner of dumbbell exercises, provides a full 90 degree range of adjustability, is stable as a Hummer and never presents the kind of distractions some other benches can with their creaking, squeaking and loose, wobbly saddles. Winner: Weider Pro 225 L Bench
  • Best Features - Both benches provide a range of workout possibilities, both provide comfortable, ergonomically intelligent 4 point leg restraint for decline exercises and abs and both can be used in concert with most Weider rack systems and cages. Both also have the wide, firm but comfortable saddle that is such a plus for big guys and gals and both are low and stable. So which one takes the best feature category? Neither. Winner: Draw
  • Performance - Performance is usually a reflection of build quality and engineering prowess. As both of these benches are well thought out and well built it’s difficult to give one the nod over the other for performance. That being said we feel the Pro 225 is an easier bench to work with than the 350 which gives it an ever-so-slight overall performance edge. Winner: Weider Pro 225 L Bench
