I began working out less than a year ago, and only seriously began in late November or so, and I’ve recently come to an impasse. Probably my favorite workout day is the chest day, where I generally do BB bench press, incline BB, and a set of flys and incline flys, finishing up with push ups, and I generally do this once to twice a week (depending on how my 4 day cycle works and how many off days I take).
Anyways, I began researching recently more and more about the bench press, becoming a fan of Dave Tate’s particular opinions on the exercise, however, although I aspire to bench a lot, I do want to focus on building a nicer chest (in particular more definition), and I suppose inevitably focusing more on the bodybuilding aspect of it, so I wasn’t sure if I Dave’s techniques for the bench press (i.e elbows tucked as opposed to flared, cross-over from the power lifting realm.
Should I follow what he does to the letter, even given my goals? Or are there other means/resources that I should look into? I also would like to get rid of as much as possible any man boobs, which I know would inevitably come from body fat reduction and cardio, but are there any exercises specifically that help in this department? I haven’t looked too much into decline presses yet, are those recommended?
Thanks for any help!
