Marilyn Stein. Benches. December 20th , 2017.
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.
The constant movement and scraping against the floor as the bench is pushed in and out leads to excessive nicks, wear and tear on the bench. Proud musicians like their equipment to standout and a scraped piano bench is something that can be easily replaced and made to look like new again. Several options to consider when purchasing a new piano bench are listed below.Leg Style. I can tell right away when the bench is a replacement bench and not the bench that originally came with the piano by the fact that most people have a bench that does not have legs to match the leg style of the piano. I may be a little bit of a stickler about this but you should be able to find a bench to match and you should make the effort to find one since it will be a part of your home for decades. Most benches are available with classic straight legs, spade legs, and sometimes antique types of legs such as Louis XIV are available.
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.
