Hey Christian. I’m recovering from a shoulder injury and I’m about to get back into lifting in a few weeks. I’ve decided to ditch the barbell bench and focus on the dumbbell bench instead. But how would you incorporate this lift into the layer system? I’m mainly training for size and aesthetics.
Could I ramp up to a 5rm, do 3 Intra-Set Load Contrast sets, then do slow eccentrics and growth factor release?
Also, do you find that the dumbbell bench hits the triceps just as effectively as the barbell?
