    What's the difference in these Benches?

    I usually see a standard bench press at the gym about say 12 inches off the floor and then I see a bench the like 6 inches off the floor.
    Why the difference?
    Train.

    Some people's legs are longer than others is one reason I can think of. I'm pretty short, and using my bro's bench, I can barely flatten out my feet.
