Comfort: The most important consideration, to specifically ensure you are comfortable, especially when lifting heavier weights.
Size: A bench long enough to rest your head. If it is as high as your shoulders it can be very uncomfortable, especially when you do exercises like incline chest flys.
Stability: To ensure its rigid and stable and does not wobble, which will impede your exercises.
Incline/Decline: An incline and decline bench will offer you the options for a greater variety of exercises.
Ankle blockers: A bench equipped with pads to block your feet (thus, preventing it from sliding down) helps you to use it for sit ups or to do decline bench exercises
