Is that all you do? Post a full routine if not. We have NO information about you. Are you heavily active? What kind of job? How much sleep?[/quote]
I used to do incline, flat, and decline dumbell bench presses but my recovery is so slow that it was taking me forever to improve. Plus I’ve heard and read enough to know that most experts stress flat and incline bench press but few people do decline.
I do not have a physical job so that does not interfere. I do run once or twice every 7 to 10 days but not for that long. I run on a treadmill around 6 mph for around 20 minutes and including the warm up and cool down it’s a total of 30 to 35 minutes but the last 5 minutes is walking.
Once in a while I go run on a slightly hilly paved trail in a park but that is for just 10 to 20 minutes. I run because it gives me good energy and stamina for my lifting workouts.
I used to deadlifts but I need to build more upper body strength before I get back into again and also my recovery is so slow that it would even further reduce the frequency of my chest workouts which are the most important to me.
I get enough sleep and I only lift when I’m fully rested otherwise you don’t do as well as you could.
