Anyone can feel free to chime in as I’m not having much luck with the search function. Starting back on up 5/3/1 after this month, but I have issues with flat bench. Years and years back I tore my pec twice in a year and never really got back into flat BB. Mostly Incline BB or lighter weight pause rep flat BB when I go the BB route. Anytime the weight starts climbing past light assistance work I always feel like I tweak it. Keep in mind aside from the tears I’ve had a separated shoulder and a broken and healed displaced SC joint on the other so flat BB bench has never been a pain free staple in my stable since the young days.
Question, any issues switching flat BB to incline BB bench for the main 5/3/1 movement, or is there a better alternative like weighted dips etc?
Bonus question, been doing a lot of loaded carry work these days, cool to still keep them in at the end of assistance work? Thanks in advance for anyone who comments with help.
