Corrine Baird. Benches. January 11th , 2018.
Bench Length and Width. There are three types of benches available to select from. The first is a stationary grand piano bench (Duet Bench) is 35 inches wide and 19 inches high. With the duet bench the width is proportioned to the size of the piano and the bench will easily seat two people. The traditional standard upright bench is 30 inches wide by 19 inches high and is a fine piece of furniture to use with all upright pianos. For smaller pianos such as spinets, I would consider a 25-inch-wide piano/keyboard bench to be just the right size. I will often recommend an adjustable bench for families (and teachers) with multiple players and pianists concerned with posture might select an adjustable or a high level Artists bench.
There are many different style of benches, places to put them, and uses for them. When most people here the word bench they usually think of the traditional park bench. Though the park bench is the most well known of the bench styles, it is hardly the only one. In the last several years, benches have been gaining the popularity around the home that they deserve. There is a large market for all different sorts of benches in todays world. Gardens and backyards have become the new home for many of these benches on the market. Some of these benches are used merely for decoration while others are used for decoration and for relaxing. Purchasing a bench that gives both style and comfort is the ultimate goal for most people. People are falling in love with their newly bought garden and backyard benches with all the new styles and flavors to choose from. These benches can be beautifully crafted and made with top of the line quality materials.
One of the most important things about shopping for vanity benches is the style. This is because the bench must look like it naturally goes with the vanity. Also the size comes into play here as well because an oversized vanity bench will not match a dainty vanity. One thing shoppers often notice when shopping for vanity benches is the relationship between style and size. The size of the bench certainly does say a lot about the style of it. Measuring is also very important before shopping for vanity benches. Measure the distance from the floor to the underside of the vanity, and do not forget to take into consideration the amount of space your legs will need under the vanity. Also measure the width of the space where the bench sits underneath the vanity. A bench that is too long will not fit into the space, and this can be difficult if you ever need a little extra space.
If the bottom of your bench press is your weak point, you are in luck, there are exercises that specifically target getting the bar off of your chest. The dip, and decline bench press are the two most helpful movements for getting an initial drive off of your chest. Also keep in mind that your form may be inhibiting your ability to drive the bar off of your chest. Always keep a tight back, firm feet, and a slight arch in your back when you bench press to fully engage your body. Nonetheless, dips are one of the most important chest related exercises to build muscle. The theory here is simple, dips focus their attention on the lower, stronger portion of the chest and can be trained quite heavy. Building up your lower chest will enable you to get the initial drive to push the bar off your sternum and into the air. The decline bench does the same thing. For a weak bottom of your bench it is simple, build up strength in the bottom of your pecs. Heavy, power and strength rep ranges should be incorporated, think 3-6 reps per set.
The constant movement and scraping against the floor as the bench is pushed in and out leads to excessive nicks, wear and tear on the bench. Proud musicians like their equipment to standout and a scraped piano bench is something that can be easily replaced and made to look like new again. Several options to consider when purchasing a new piano bench are listed below.Leg Style. I can tell right away when the bench is a replacement bench and not the bench that originally came with the piano by the fact that most people have a bench that does not have legs to match the leg style of the piano. I may be a little bit of a stickler about this but you should be able to find a bench to match and you should make the effort to find one since it will be a part of your home for decades. Most benches are available with classic straight legs, spade legs, and sometimes antique types of legs such as Louis XIV are available.
