Powerlifters lift the heaviest weights in the world. The world record for bench press is held by a powerlifter, not a bodybuilder. It then makes sense from a purely common sense stand point to model what this group of people do. Secondarily, the science backs it. Training in a lower rep range (which we will go in depth on below) works for strength and power, which is exactly what we are looking for.
The best way to examine the comfort of a bench is to sit on it and try it. You may want to consider adding pillows and/or cushions on the bench. Benches with backs are usually more comfortable than backless benches. Some benches also have armrests which can be considered another positive sign.
Don't neglect the concrete benches. They can look extremely elegant in classic gardens, gardens with a lot of grass and trees. Concrete benches are perfect for do-it-yourself project because they are easy to make and come very cheap. Their disadvantages are mostly two - they can cool quickly when it's cold outside and they can't be moved (at least not easily). A concrete bench remains there once you install it.
Go out and take a walk in the park right now. Do you like the benches there? Sure, they are well planned, very robust and maybe even in a good shape. Are they comfortable enough? Are they in sunny or shady places? Large enough? Do you see where I am going to? There are many things that make a bench good or bad. It's not just to go out and buy the first bench you see. It takes planning and evaluation.
