The Bodymax CF302 workout bench has been designed to provide an effective training platform for flat bench exercises such as dumbbell flys and the bench press.
Workout bench design
In terms of the bench design, the frame has been kept simple with just a single supportive bar running along the base of the back support which helps with stability.
While many workout benches feature a padded support section, the Bodymax CF302 has also focussed on providing more support for your head and neck with extra thick padding at the top end.
Rubber feet have also been added to help prevent the bench from moving when in use, as well as to prevent any damage to the floor. The main design feature that sets this bench apart from other flat workout benches is the integrated dumbbell storage rack.

Dumbbell rack design and benefits
If you are looking to buy a new flat workout bench for your home gym, it will generally be for one or both of the following reasons:
- To support dumbbell workouts
- You are planning on combining the bench with a squat rack or power cage for barbell workouts
While many squat racks and power cages are now supplied with weight plate storage pegs built into their frame, if you plan on performing mainly dumbbell workouts it often results in having to buy a separate dumbbell storage rack.
With the cost of the Bodymax CF302 flat bench usually around £65, even a relatively simple dumbbell rack such as the Bodymax 6 pair A frame will set you back an additional £75 if bought separately.
Aside from the cost benefit, having the dumbbell storage area under the bench keeps the weights close to you for easy access when training, as well as keeping the dumbbells organised and easy to find.
Exercises possible using the Bodymax CF302
When it comes to dumbbell sets you can generally spend as much or as little as you choose, depending on the weight and quality you require.
With many of the high quality hammertone and fixed weight dumbbell sets priced at under £40 it’s possible to buy the Bodymax CF302 and a dumbbell set for under £100.
This provides you with everything you need to perform a wide range of both upper and lower body exercises, and produce a basic workout plan.
The following is a list of just a few of these exercises and the muscle groups they work:
- Upright dumbbell rows (Shoulders, Traps, Biceps)
