Okay, using chalk might have seemed odd at first, and I am sure that foam rolling your legs seems even more out of place right now, but trust me, it works. This step towards a bigger bench should not be limited to just your lower body, you really should foam roll your upper body as well. There are a few reasons for this. First, foam rolling relieves tension built up in your body. When you bench press (and lift heavy in general) you want to get the most out of your muscles, you want everything working in sync and at their maximum, this goes for your legs as well as your upper body. By foam rolling your IT band, inner quad sweep, glutes, and calves you are preparing yourself for maximum effort from your leg drive. By loosening and releasing tension and stress in your lower body you are allowing yourself the ability to use your leg drive as effectively as possible.
Storage benches are a wonderful way of storing things without making it obvious, especially in a home where space is at a minimum. I am sure you can imagine that clutter is the one thing that can spoil a decent house. A storage bench is a boon in such cases. You can simply stash away the clutter including books, magazines, newspapers, pillows, and even mattresses for future use. Sturdy storage benches are also a nice way to provide extra seating around the house. They make for comfortable seats simply because of their bulk. Storage benches can also be used in a yard and can prove to be a boon when storing gardening accessories. These benches are also great addition to a poolside and can store your pool toys, frisbees or even rackets. Outdoors are ideal for storage benches in such cases. However inside the home, a storage bench is more than just a dumping ground.
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.
Taking this into account, if you are looking for a piano bench to go with your Steinway piano, the two most common options are either a wood top bench, or the above mentioned artist bench (the other option would be an upholstered top bench, which while more comfortable, does not highlight the elegance of the Steinway piano as much as a finished wood top bench does, and thus is less popular). Of the two choices, the most popular is the Jansen artist bench, for both its design and usability. If youve seen a Steinway piano in a concert hall, the adjustable artist bench with it is a Jansen (and its quality is such that it is perfect for performance halls, teaching studios, and home use).
Some outdoor wood benches have attached planters on each side of the bench. This type of bench goes great in any garden because it becomes the garden. In each of the planters you can plant various types of flowers that equally match the others in your garden giving even more beauty to it for many years to come. When choosing outdoor wood benches you should have an idea of how many you want to put in your garden or on your patio. Too many benches will take away the beauty of the flowers and other items that make your garden beautiful. If your garden can accommodate it, then maybe placing a few outdoor wood benches here and there will add beauty to your garden.
