Let us now see the best features this YOLEO adjustable weight bench has to offer. 

What is the best adjustable weight bench?

No Assembly Required

One advantage is that the bench is essentially pre-assembled. You have to mount one of the leg crossbars and insert many lock pins into the correct locations. 

In addition, it includes all of the construction tools with the bench, so you won't need to bring your own.

Most consumers were impressed by the bench’s comfort and sturdiness. However, given the pricing range, one would expect something shaky.

On the other hand, the bench is composed of heavy-duty steel, making it robust, and the PU leather cushions packed with high-density foam are also charming.

Versatility

When purchasing an adjustable bench, I would recommend at least three back pad positions. Fortunately, Yoleo offers you seven.

There are more than enough angles for incline bench pressing and shoulder presses with seven adjustable settings. The bench also has a decent, which is ideal for decline sits ups, etc.

Unfortunately, the Yoleo does not have an adjustable seat. However, depending on your training, an adjustable seat might determine when selecting a weight bench.

If you're looking for a weight bench for incline pressing, an adjustable seat is a necessity! In low-inclined positions, an adjustable seat will keep your buttocks from slipping down the bench.

Weight Capacity

The weight capacity of the Yoleo is the lowest of any adjustable bench. However, as previously stated, at 330lb, this bench is only suited for dumbbell exercises; for heavy rack work, you’ll need a heavy-duty bench.

Stability

When it comes to home gym equipment, stability should be the top priority for everyone, and I typically recommend that the heavier the bench, the better. 

As weight is an essential component in assisting stability, it is also a good indicator of the overall quality of the weight bench.

Lightweight budget benches will wobble a little, especially at steeply inclined positions. You cannot expect heavy gauged sturdy benches at this price. At least Yeloe remembered to put anti-slip roller pads on the bench’s feet.

The anti-slip roller pads will aid with sliding, and the broad feet should alleviate any significant wobbling or toppling worries.

Warranty

The Yoleo comes with a 1-year warranty, in line with other weight benches within this price range.

According to the manufacturer's website, the Yoleo comes with a 100% money-back guarantee. If you are not happy within the first 30 days of use, they will refund you your money.

Pros

  • Well-constructed at the pricing point
  • 7 movable back pad positions
  • Padding made of high-density foam
  • Folds flat for simple storage
  • Back pad ladder adjustment mechanism – simple to use
  • Excellent Bench for Dumbbell Workouts for Beginners
  • The price is under $100. 

Cons

  • Super light bench – simple to transport, but the bench’s stability suffers as a result, especially in inclination positions.
  • There is no adjustable seat.

FAQs

Is it worth getting an adjustable bench?

How is the backrest padded?

The backrest on this bench is packed with high-density foam, making the bench both comfortable and crash-resistant.

What about the leg crossbars?

There are three sets of leg crossbars on this bench; you can use all of them or only one. As a result, many users were confused about how far to extend them. Each set adds 6″ in length and 2″ in width to the bench. 

Is the bench easy to adjust?

Very easy; all you have to do is loosen or tighten the knobs on the front end of each set of crossbars, and then use the pins to choose your preferred height position.

Is it difficult to store?

It is relatively easy to store; it is supposed to be folded for storage, as well. However, the most challenging part of storing this weight bench is setting it up each time you use it.

How long is the warranty?

The warranty is 1-year. The manufacturer’s website says: “Yoleo Fitness offers a 100% money-back guarantee.

If you are not happy with the first 30 days of use, they will refund you your money!" I would recommend taking advantage of this warranty, especially if you're starting with weightlifting.

Customer reviews

Overall, the majority of consumers were satisfied with this Yoleo adjustable weight bench. One consumer posted a 4-star review and stated that the bench is convenient for working out shoulders or triceps. 

She also added that the gym is within her budget and offers an outstanding value.

Other users who purchased this item had similar remarks. They said it was easy to adjust, comfortable, and convenient for a dip station or dumbbell workout. 

Two users gave it a 2-star rating. One consumer noted that the backrest of this bench was not as comfortable as advertised.

On the other hand, another client said that the inability to adjust the seat was a deal-breaker.

Alternatives

Which bench is best for home gym?

The Gymenist Exercise Bench

There’s a reason why the Gymenist bench is the most popular choice for a low-cost foldable bench. The Gymenist has a few features that the Yoleo does not. The first is that you can adjust the seat!

It's challenging to locate an excellent cheap bench with a foldable function and an adjustable seat. The Gymeneist is a bench that has both! And for less than $100.

When it comes to customizable back pad settings, the Gymenist falls short of the Yoleo. Still, with six back pad angles, the Gymesist offers plenty for all of your urgent requirements.

The Gymenist, like the Yoleo, adjusts the back pad using a ladder system. The ladder adjustment system is faster to change than the pull pin kind and, in my view, is a more durable system; cheap pull pin systems are unstable and often break.

Because there is no high-density foam for the Gymenist’s cushioning, the Yoleo has the Gymenist beat in this regard.

However, the Gymenet has received no complaints about the cushioning, with several users noting that they felt stable when pushing.

Finally, the Gymenist has a 600lb weight capacity, roughly double that of the Yoleo.

The Body-Solid Standard Weight Bench

Picking a standard weight bench is the next best alternative. The Body-Solid Standard Bench has a similar construction to the Yoleo (I saw no complaints about shaky, wobbling benches with the Body-Solid) but comes at nearly half the price!

The Body-Solid can carry 350lb weight capacity, but several reports of people benching more. So I'd recommend that you go with 350lb for safety reasons; you don't want to strain your back.

What Body-Solid does offer is a pull-pin ladder adjustment system. It is excellent for beginners, as it allows you to keep the seat relatively low; you can then move the ladder up a little at a time as your strength and confidence build.

The Body-Solid Standard Bench also comes with three sets of leg crossbars, which gives you greater flexibility when setting up your bench.

Conclusion

The Yoleo adjustable weight bench is an affordable weight bench suitable for dumbbell workouts. Beginners who have not gotten a chance to experience free-weight bench pressing yet can also use the bench. 

The overall quality of this product might not be nearly as good as the higher-end products, but it serves its function at an excellent price point.

This bench is certainly worth trying if you are under 300-310 lbs (with dumbbell/barbell weight) and 6 feet tall. Simply said, you’re getting a lot for your money.
