The floor press is a powerlifters best friend. The set up is simple, and the logic behind the motion is even more obvious. All you need to do is set up a bar raised from the floor high enough that you can get your elbows below it, then you perform the same motion as a bench press, you push. The great thing here is that you are just focusing on the top part of a pressing motion, isolating the muscle fibers that are engaged when you try to finish a real bench press. Also, the floor press takes leg drive completely out of the question, hitting your chest and triceps with full force. Train moderately heavy for strength and a little bit of hypertrohpy, think 6-8 reps per set.
All of this being said, given these economic times, buying a Jansen artist bench can still be a significant financial commitment for a lot of people. And while Jansen piano benches are sold online, for those who have never seen one of their benches in person, its not uncommon for a person to want to examine one up-close before buying something over the internet. The best way of doing this would be contact your local Steinway dealer, and ask if they have any Jansen artist benches in their storeroom next to their pianos. That way, you can do to your dealer, sit on the bench yourself, and see the actual quality of the bench.
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.
Materials used in manufacturing vanity benches are numerous and variable. Most benches include upholstered seats as well as some sort of tapestry. Wood continues to be a popular material in crafting vanity benches, but it is slowly being replaced by sleek metallic finish. When wood is used, vanity benches are also protected from rot because of the naturally repellant properties of wood. However metallic vanity benches are also quite popular. One of the frequently used metals is wrought iron. Vanity benches made using wrought iron also have the luxury of allowing various metallic finishes to be applied. Gold finish is preferred in many situations. Other types of finish include pewter finish, which imparts an ebony type of look to your vanity bench.
