The first and most important thing you must do to improve your bench press technique is to get a solid setup on the bench. Lifters that take a day to make big changes to their setup can sometimes add 20, 30, or even 40 pounds to their bench in just that one session. Before you have even taken the bar out of the rack, you need to put yourself in a position that is as advantageous for your unique structure and leverages as possible. Here are a few steps that can help you get into this position: Most lifters find it best to start the setup phase of the bench press in one of two ways. One of these ways is to lie down on the bench and push yourself back until your head hangs off the edge of the bench. How far off you hang your head will depend on the placement of the j-hooks (where the bar rests) in relation to the bench, so youll need to experiment if you choose this method. The other common way in which people start the setup phase is to actually sit up behind the bar, facing outwards toward their feet and the other edge of the bench. Benches are different everywhere, but most of them will allow you to get into this position without anything getting in the way.
Wood Finishes. Piano bench manufacturers offer a wood finish to match any finish provided by the piano manufacturer. It is very easy to get an exact match as long as you review the choices you are offered. When choosing a bench to match a mahogany piano you will need to bear in mind that there might be four shades of mahogany available from the bench manufacturer and you should select accordingly. Most bench manufacturers will offer a dark mahogany, medium mahogany (also called cherry), a brown mahogany, and a Steinway mahogany (they are popular enough and just a slight shade different that they have a shade named after the piano). Most finishes will come in a high gloss offering as well, though it will likely cost a little more money to get it. If your piano is a high gloss piano, such as a grand piano likely has, you should match it.
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.
