If you've been making the most of a daily home workout — whether that's a bodyweight routine, a lunchtime yoga session or a quick kettlebell blast — you've probably thought about how you can improve your home fitness set up. Dumbbells are the most obvious choice, but have you considered investing in a weight bench? Make your way through our guide below and you'll unlock a host of new exercises that had been unavailable.
