DB Chest Floor Press - Better Size Than Bench Press. The bench press has never done anything for me when it comes to chest (pec major) size. Incline (even low) is more front shoulder. And I know what I'm doing with body positions; tried them all. I hear the same plight all the time with long limb individuals.
For 10 years I couldn't figure out how to get my chest firing. The I started pressing and doing flyes from the ground. Along with a healthy mix of cable work and boom: finally some chest size. I'm not saying I have a huge chest but 2 years ago I had none. And my shoulders are healthier AND my bench press #'s are up because I only focus on bench press strength for bench press strength or nervous system recruitment.
So, I will do my barbell pressing in the 1-5 rep range for 3-5 sets and then move to better size builders (like DB floor press) and finally finish with push up variations.
I like the DB Chest Floor Press in the 12-15 rep range.
Note the knee position (over belly, straight leg on ground or bent knee w/feet on ground) as progressions/digressions within the set itself.
Ensure the arch of the back and the building of the rib cage on the eccentric phase of the workout.
