I am trying to increase my bench. I usually rotate my main movement for strength every 4 to 6 weeks. i will change my percentages and rep/sets so i do not get stagnate in my routine. I have used floor presses before with good success, although i have only used them after a traditional bench. I have a sticking point at about three inches above my chest after i touch, and the floor presses help with that. I saw the dead bench, and have never done it before. It looks like something new that i could work in for a cycle as a nice adaption to what i have been doing.
Im just not sure if i should use these two exercises together, or run them in different routines.[/quote]
I have the same sticking point. As far as assistance, I found lots of back, lat, and shoulder work help me the most in overcoming that sticking point.
