The bench press, in its infinite glory is not the best exercise to show true strength. The dead lift, the physical act of pulling up as much weight as one can from the ground seems like a more fitting champion. Or what about the Olympic lifts, the movements that are competed on by athletes across the world on the greatest stage? Could even the dip be a more true testament of upper body strength than the bench press? Regardless of any of this, the bench press still holds a lure in our culture, and will for the foreseeable future be the only number that matures to recreational weight lifters. So how can you maximize your effort in the gym to make sure that your bench press numbers keep rising? Here are four simple steps that will surely help you add more weight to the bar. The first step towards getting a bigger bench is to train for a bigger bench. This may seem obvious, and it is obvious, but the most basic principles of weight lifting have been overshadowed by fads, perfect pushup infomercials, and improper information. Getting a bigger bench is simple, and it requires one relatively easy step: train like a powerlifter.
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.
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.
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.
There are many different style of benches, places to put them, and uses for them. When most people here the word bench they usually think of the traditional park bench. Though the park bench is the most well known of the bench styles, it is hardly the only one. In the last several years, benches have been gaining the popularity around the home that they deserve. There is a large market for all different sorts of benches in todays world. Gardens and backyards have become the new home for many of these benches on the market. Some of these benches are used merely for decoration while others are used for decoration and for relaxing. Purchasing a bench that gives both style and comfort is the ultimate goal for most people. People are falling in love with their newly bought garden and backyard benches with all the new styles and flavors to choose from. These benches can be beautifully crafted and made with top of the line quality materials.
