Chest exercise

What's everyone doing for your chest workouts? I generally do butterflys, flat bench, incline bench and decline bench but I can't really do ALL of those with the weights I'd like(in one session) because of muscle fatige. Is it beneficial to do incline/decline bench on a regular basis? My schedule is Day 1- Upper, Day 2-cardio, Day 3- Lower, then repeat. I want to build my chest a little.

I normally do flat barbell bench, dumbell inclines, and flies (upper and lower). Lately I have been doing incline with the bar just for a change. I occassionally do declines, but not often. Just rotate between them, constantly changing it up.

Just spread it out more. Workout 4 or 5 times a week instead of 3. You'll have more time that way. If I tried to work my whole upper body in one day my workout would be 5 hours long.

Just split it up. For an example I do Chest/Tri's on Mon., Back/Bi's on Tues., Calves/Forearms/Abs on Wed., Cardio/Rest on Thursday, and Shoulders/Legs on Fri.

Be sure to switch it up. I switch my split up at least every month.

Hope this helped.

I do flat, incline, decline, and flies. For a good change, try changing your grip from wide to narrow.

IMO if you are just lifting to stay in shape.. or get a little bit of muscle.. 3 days a week is fine.. everyone is on the 4 day a week band wagon with realising that you only really need to do that if you are lifting or large muscle growth. i lifted for 3 days a week for my first year of lifting, all the way up to benching 315x5ish before i started going 4 days a week.

As for chest.. i do flat bench, incline dumbells, Decline hammer strength.. and then either cables or pec dec.. if you do enough volume and intensity.. that is more then enough.

Pain, is weakness leaving the body.
