Bench. Saturday , February 03rd , 2018 - 09:01:45 AM
Though you must experiment with your own foot placement to find out how to best satisfy these three criteria, here are a few either / or aspects of foot placement that can help get you started. Once you begin to experiment with your setup, this one becomes a no-brainer. Unless you are very big or very inflexible, you should almost certainly be putting your feet behind your knees. If you are having trouble visualizing this position, it means that there will be less than a ninety-degree angle between your hamstring and calf, and that your knees will stick out farther towards the foot-end of the bench than your heels. Most people find that this is the best position for getting strong leg drive and maintaining a stable and tight position throughout the entire movement.
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.
No matter what foot placement you choose to use, it must satisfy a few important criteria. First, your feet must be positioned relative to your torso in such a way that you are stable (not wobbling from side to side) even when handling weights that are at or above your max bench press. Second, you need to position your feet so that you can drive through your heals when you press. This does not mean that your heals need to be in contact with the floor, but that you can deliberately push them downward. Finally, you must position your feet in a way that does not place too much strain on your hips. You may or may not use a super-wide foot placement, but you must make sure your hips can handle using this setup set after set, week after week, without getting too hurt to squat or train legs.
