@Redonodo- I think the bottom line is always an individual thing, depending on your level of development and your ultimate goals. There are many approaches you can take when trying to actually get the 'feel' in your chest when pressing. You'll hear people discuss hand spacing, positioning of your elbows, how you're "setting" yourself in the bench, how low the bar is coming down on your sternum... but for me, I had to train around my natural strength curve. I didn't start training until my early 20's, and my strength levels went up very quickly in pretty much every lift with barely any increases in muscle size. That's why you'll find a lot of threads where I give the impression that how much weight I lift doesn't really matter to me. Strength will come if given time, no matter what exercise selection you use, and whether you choose to pre-exhaust or not.
If your primary goal is hypertrophy in a specific muscle group, then simply getting stronger may not be enough to get you there. Sure, improving your #s on compound lifts WILL contribute to overall strength levels, and hopefully some hypertrophy, but at a certain point (and I don't know what your level of development is), you have to look at your body's individual parts, and say "Is my current approach working here?" If not, you need to be smart enough to try something else.
