Beth Pugh. Benches. January 11th , 2018.
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.
Even the most difficult of consumers will find a good selection of indoor and outdoor wood benches online - possibly one that you will be able to relax on in any room in your home. Just sitting on an indoor wood bench you will be able to get hold of that book and read it while you are relaxing on the bench that you choose. These benches are available in many different styles and colors- from modern to contemporary to traditional, in wood teak wood plastic or resin. They tend to offer a constant aesthetic appeal to your home as well as making an extremely comfortable seating place for you or any of your guests. They are bound to add character to just about any room. Some of the more popular places to put them is your entryway, lounge or your bedroom.
It is astounding to know just how many garden bench styles exist nowadays. When you are ready to occupy that bare spot in your garden or patio with a few outdoor benches, dont look only at the ordinary outdoor storage bench. Even though they can be practical, a storage bench used outdoors will not always be as appealing as other sorts of garden benches would. Contribute elegant charm to your veranda with a classic bench or take a trendy approach with some reprocessed material or even metal benches. Many contemporary styles of benches are desired but these arent what you visualize when you hear someone say the word bench. Take for instance, an arbour bench or a tree bench. A bench for potting flowers is wonderful with a few planter boxes and allows you to keep all your gardening tools altogether as well as displaying your beautiful creations. Arbour benches make your garden space beautiful and convenient. A tree bench, also known as a curved around the tree bench, makes your landscaping the centerpiece of your home. The tree bench beckons everyone to sit and gather around.
Piano Bench Tops. The most common type of piano bench top is the hardwood bench top. Most have an optional model available with a music storage compartment that is very handy for sheet music or other music accessories (my kids will hide things in our bench all the time). Fancier and more expensive seat tops will be upholstered in fabric or even leather. Most bench manufacturers have lots of fabric choices to select from and they can be made to match your interior décor without issue. Vinyl is a nice substitute for real leather if budget is a concern. I personally like the fabric seat over a leather or vinyl seat top because of the capability of the fabric to breathe.
In addition to the floor press you are going to want to hammer your triceps with a few other presses to really make them stronger. The close grip bench press is the same as the bench press, just with a closer grip. Your hands do not need to be extremely close to reap the benefits of this exercise, and going to close can actually cause wrist pain and inhibit you from going as heavy as you can. A width similar to that of the man below will work just fine for our goals. Keep your elbows in, and perform full reps. Train moderately heavy like above. The Tate press is a great finishing exercise for your bench training days. The Tate press simulates a bench press but only engages your triceps. We still want to go heavy here, but not quite as much, think 8-10 reps per set.
