I stopped doing flat lately, and that’s because my incline and decline bench have been stronger IMO. So that could probably explain why flat is lacking. But a normal chest day would look like this:
Incline: 155 x 10-12 4 sets (I touch chest on incline, i figure it’s the way to go)
Decline: 225 x 8-10 3-4 sets
Wide Chest pres machine: 2 plates each side 12-15 reps 4 sets
Incline Chest flyes: 40’s x 10-12 3 sets
Mid cable flyes: 3 sets of 10-15
Pushups: 2 sets[/quote]
there’s nothing really wrong with not doing flat bench as decline will hit your lower chest anyway, unless you plan on competing as a powerlifter at some point or you want to rotate flat bench back in later. in the case of the latter, the time not spent with that movement will come back to bite you in the ass for a few weeks or months later on as you try to re-learn the movement.
your chest development should be ok as long as you are progressing with inclines and declines, and with your isolation work.
if you can touch your chest on inclines and continue to progress without hurting anything, more power to you.
with your rep schemes, are you ramping to your top set? or are the 3-4 sets of inclines all done at the same weight, all 3-4 sets of declines done at the same weight, etc.?
still waiting on that squat vid.
