I was using the bench to build the chest, shoulder and tris muscles and pushing strength for sports (muay thai and grappling), while i never competed in powerlifting its something i would like to do someday, just for fun, but its not my focus.
I think for the next cycle at least, i'm going to play safe and use the DB Floor Press. But (maybe i'm wrong) i feel that the DB lifts , while great for assistance, are not as good as the BB ones as core lifts. Thats why i was asking about alternatives: BB Incline, Partial (board) Bench, etc... Probably any of these would accomplish my goals IF i can do it safely in the long term.
About tris and back: its pretty odd when doing bench, even close grip, i feel the chest more, and it gets more sore than the triceps. Dips are more 50%/50% chest and triceps. So i'm probably "chest dominant" even doing a lot more stuff for my triceps than for my chest. As far as rowing, i'm (much)stronger in pulling movements than in pushing movements and i also balance the volume, one set of pulling for evry set of pushing.
Thanks for the response.
