Search for Rippetoes guide to rep ranges and strength, it is an extremely helpful graphic for our argument here. The largest effect on both strength and power occurs at lower rep ranges, below 8, generally somewhere between 3 and 6. What does this mean? No more drop sets, no more burn out sets until infinity, more powerlifting style training. To put it simply, you need to train in the 3-6 rep range to get the best strength and power results. Also remember, you train for strength, you dont test for strength. Going for one rep maxs every week will not help you increase your strength, rather it will be extremely taxing on your central nervous system. Train for the strength, dont test for it.
This may be perceived as the silliest step in getting a bigger bench, but it may actually be the most overlooked. Chalk is generally seen as an aid in only pulling movements, but its beneficial effects can be seen in pushing movements as well. Chalk at its core does one thing, it allows for a more firm and secure grip of a bar. When you bench heavy you want every muscle working together to get that bar off of your chest. Your forearms included. Chalking up your hands and the bar will allow you to have a more secure and firm grip, when you squeeze your heart out it will now go the extra mile. Try it, chalk helps, it really does.
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.

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.
During winter months there is no place better for the storage of scarves, mittens, or gloves. Small foyer benches can certainly work for many purposes.

Corner stations are sturdy units that can be made of steel for the workplace and wood for the home. The numbers of shelves are optional and should be added based on the amount of use the corner bench will be getting. These indoor small benches offer the businessman and the home resident alike the satisfaction of knowing exactly where an item can be found.
As it is with a lot of outdoor furniture, wooden benches are the most popular of garden and backyard benches. The most common woods for these benches are cedar, teak, pine, and cypress. Most of these garden and outdoor benches are very easily maintained, especially when made from cedar and teak. Cypress is similar to teak and cedar which also makes it very popular. All three of these woods are known for their durability and natural oils that help to keep the wood looking younger for longer. These oils also repel insects and protect from warping, rotting, or decay. These natural oils also keep insects at bay which can be positively wonderful in a garden or anywhere else in the great outdoors. These benches are also made of plastics, which also have their desirable qualities. Recycled plastic benches are virtually maintenance free and just as strong and durable as the wooden benches, which are great qualities for any occasion. These styles of benches also come in a variety of style and colors. The metal made benches are probably the least popular in the world of benches.
