I forgot who I heard this from, but it seems as if the Press is the upper body strength execise and the Bench Press is the upper body power exercise. Does anyone else view it as so?
No.

Depending on when you go to the student rec center to lift (or whatever they call it), not benching due to no benches being available becomes a real concern.

Just sayin'.

Availability is a real concern now that I think about it. We have 4 benches and they are always being used with about 10 groups waiting to get on.
