Why not use dumbbells ??
Adjustable Bench Chest Exercises
Dumbbell Bench Press
Dumbbell bench press is absolutely the best chest building exercise you can do with dumbbells. With an adjustable bench, you can set the back rest to different angles. An incline angle will place more emphasis your upper chest, whereas decline will work your lower chest. Press the dumbbells up and together, and then bring them down slowly until the dumbbells are in line with or slightly above your chest. You can also do these with a pause at the bottom to make it harder if you want to push yourself!
You can also do chest flies on a bench by using a pair of dumbbells or a resistance band. If you’re using a band, place it underneath the bench. Leading with your elbows and keeping your arms from bending, bring the dumbbells/band together above your chest. Squeeze at the top of the movement, and then bring your arms back until your elbows are in line with your body/parallel to the floor.
Close Grip Press
Another excellent chest builder is the close grip dumbbell/band press. Once again, if you’re using a band, place it underneath the bench. This exercise works by keeping your elbows tucked by your sides and keeping your wrists perpendicular to your body (instead of at right angles like regular dumbbell press). Press the dumbbells together, push up and squeeze your chest at the top. Keep your elbows tucked by your sides for maximum burn. The close grip press places an added emphasis on your triceps as well as working your chest.
Adjustable Bench Shoulder Exercises
Dumbbell Shoulder Press
Unsurprisingly, the dumbbell shoulder press is the number one shoulder exercise to do with a weight bench. Set your bench at a 90-degree to 60-degree angle. The lower the angle, the easier it will be. If your dumbbells are too heavy to use at 90-degrees, set the bench to a smaller angle, and vice versa. Press the dumbbells up and together over your head, and then bring them back down until your elbows are slightly past parallel to the ground.
The dumbbell/band lateral raise is a staple for building your side delts. If you’re using a band, place it under your feet to keep it still. Sit on the end of your bench and lean slightly forwards. Leading with your elbows, bring the dumbbells/band upwards and outwards to your sides, until your arms are parallel with the ground.
Dumbbell Arnold presses are favoured among bodybuilders for their effectiveness at hitting all parts of the shoulder. With your bench at a 60 to 90-degree angle, grip the dumbbells with your palms facing inwards towards your body and the dumbbells close together. As you press upwards, bring your elbows out whilst simultaneously twisting your wrists so your palms face outwards at the top of the movement. On the way down, simply do the inverse of this.
Adjustable Bench Back Exercises
Single Arm Rows
Single arm rows can be done with either bands or dumbbells and are great for building a thicker back. With one knee at the back of your bench, and one hand at the front, keep your back straight and pull the dumbbell/band upwards whilst keeping your elbow tucked by your side. You can also do a variation of this with two dumbbells and your bench at a 45-degree angle. Lay on your front and pull both dumbbells up and back with your elbows tucked.
The dumbbell pullover is a great exercise to do from home that will target your lats and help to build a wider back. Lie flat on your bench and press one dumbbell upwards so it’s over your face. This is your starting position for the set. Flare your elbows slightly outwards and keep your arms neutral. Leading with the elbows (not the palms), bring the dumbbell back behind your head until you feel tension in your back, then bring it back over your head and repeat.
