Search for Rippetoe's 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.
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.
What is powerlifting? Powerlifting is a sport that consists of three lifts, the squat, dead lift, and bench press performed at maximum weight. Simple right, lift as much weight as possible and garner the largest total you can. This sounds like a perfect blueprint for what we want to do with the bench press. Mimicking the training style of power lifters makes sense for two reasons, one obvious and one more scientific.
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, don't 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.
