Mike and BtB got you covered but to add to what Mike was saying about the bench, I have a similar bench in my garage with that useless gap and big pad at the bottom. For me it's easiest to go higher up the bench like Mike said but instead of putting my legs over the pad I put them around the bench if that makes sense, I'll attach a pic.
Having my legs wider also lets me arch better and get more drive through my hips without my ass floating up. Might be something worth trying anyway.
