Adding in More Chest Exercises


I've been doing a strength training routine for about 8 months and have been very happy with it so far.

Squat 5x5
Bench Press 5x5
Bent over Rows 5x5
Chin-ups 3xF Dips

Squat 5x5
Overhead Press 5x5
Deadlift 3x5
Pull-ups 3xf

I've made some great gains with it but now i feel its time for a change. I want to incorperate more chest excecises... any suggestions?


Incline bench, flat DB press, incline DB press, floor press, dips (chest pointed to ground as best as possible), any kind of flys. You imagination is only thing to hold you back.

Why not try to incorporate more of everything exercises?


I like doing Incline DB press along with Dips, gives your chest good size


Also depends on the rep and set scheme^^^^and diet.

My rep scheme is 3[sets]x5 Incline, and 3x5 Dips… I’ve seen good gains with them and once i start to see the gains stop, I will do 5x3 with heavier weights… Also I am on kinda of a low carb diet… 1 gram per pound of body weight, and about 1.5 grams of protein… I seem to get more muscular but loseing weight
