The bench press is a three part movement. This may seem silly at first, but think about it this way. First you have the descent, the stretch of your pectorals, second you have the initial push, the engagement of the pecs, and third you have the finish, the engagement and contraction of your triceps. Three parts, two parts that really engage your muscles, and one part that is primarily your weakness. Personally the top of my bench press is my weak point. I can push a lot of weight halfway up from my chest, but finishing the movement has always been a struggle. The fix; floor press, close grip bench press, and Tate press.
Small benches can offer any number of solutions inside and outside the home. They are not difficult to install as many of them are freestanding, and the additional storage they offer can be utilized in a number of ways throughout the home. Wall mounted benches are nice when you are sure the spot you place it in will be its permanent home. Small entryway benches would be one example. During inclement weather, children and adults alike can bring a lot of debris into the home. Having a wall mounted bench just inside the doorway, will give one the opportunity to sit and remove muddy or wet shoes. The wall mounted bench often has a hinged lid that can be lifted up and many of these items can be stored away.
The piano bench industry grew from the desire of piano manufacturing companies to focus solely on the manufacturing of pianos. The bench was, for the most part, an afterthought. Many bench companies got their start in the early 1900s by contracting with the piano manufacturers to offer benches in multiple styles that would match the exact finish and leg style of the piano being bought and sold. As the piano would move from owner to owner the bench would not always make the trip, creating a need for the replacement bench manufacturer. The other primary reason for the piano bench manufacturers existence is the fact that the piano bench is typically handled very roughly by many teachers and students alike.
