If you are benching, and you do this:

1) Lower bar to chest (normal bench)
2) Push to sticking point
3) Re-lower
4) Push to lockout (normal bench)

Is there a commonly used name for that?

You see, it's the computer programmer in me. If it passed through a programmer's desk he'd insist on naming it "1/2 + 1" reps.

More seriously, I asked the question because 1 1/2 is what my trainer called a different move:

1) Lower
2) Push to lock out
3) Lower back half-way
4) Push back to lock out

I was looking to distinguish the two.

at sprint training in the german army, you would call something like running half way, then back to the start and then the full way "pendulum/pendular" sprints. so what about pendulum/pendular bench?

I think it's the same name for either, it just depends what you want to emphasise.

If you lower all the way, lock it out, lower half way and lock it out again then that's triceps emphasis. If you lower all the way, lift half way, lower again and then lock out, then that emphasises chest.

either way, it's one and a half reps.

Or then call the first one "half and a one -reps (½1)". Because you do a half rep first, then full one.
Thus letting your coach keep calling his version 1½ reps.

I have come across these is several contexts, and have called them "one-and-a-halfs". If you need to distinguish top or bottom, I guess you just have to spell it out. If you are uncomfortable with the order of the elements, you can always do the full range lift first and do the half second. You can do these with lots of different lifts; chins, pushups, squats, press, and you can emphasize either the top or the bottom half in any of those.
