    Incline and bench or incline and dips

    I’m doing full bodies and will workout from home once my power rack arrives.

    I will do 2 chest exercises and have the option of only 3:
    Incline
    Flat bench
    dips

    I don’t progress well once a week so doing all 3 is not an option.

    What would be more beneficial:
    Incline and flat bench
    Incline and chest dips

    ?

    I prefer not to drop incline.

    Flat and dips would be better the better pick two, IMO.

    I prefer not to drop incline.
    I normally do incline + dips or hammer strength decline chest press
    Or
    Incline + cable cross or pec dec

    Main reason is because I treat the second exercise as a deep stretch, getting all the fibers hit deep

    And yeah, my upper chest lags as well, I understand the incline priority.

    Good luck brother!

    None of those are 'chest exercises' tho...
    They hit chest, triceps and shoulders.

    Just pick 2, hammer them & track numbers then swap then later... You certainly won't only run 2 push lifts forever.

    If a post sounds like N=1 and that they have no experience coaching anyone but them selves?

    Do the math. You ain't that person, their experience probably isn't going to be yours. Can still be useful for inspiration - try things, follow athlete response and track trends In your training.

    Bench and incline. Those are the majors. Dips can be done once in awhile for a change of pace in place of either or in addition to, think long term …why be so concrete?

    I progress better with frequency.

    I guess I could change after 6 months.

    I only have a power rack with dips and a bench. Or will do when they arrive!

    Well, a solid plan, one I enjoyed myself for some time :

    4 sets bench
    4 sets incline
    4 sets weighted dips.

    Warning, your front delts will be obliterated after that.

    Probably could switch things up as you go along. Both are beneficial in different engagements

    Incline+flat, occasional dips when you want to switch things around a bit. Eventually you'll probably do all 3, but i'd focus on those 2 mainly.

    Incline with dumbells and chest dips, which differ from triceps dips

    One of my old routines only had two exercises for chest and 3 sets a piece, incline bench and decline fly - I liked the idea because you had something to emphasize your upper and something for lower. It made for a nice simple balance. If I wasn't using a decline fly for that, I would've used a chest dip definitely, because of how hard it pushed that lower pec. Never felt that same tension in decline, it's a very nice combo. Incline and dips will make for a very nice chest.

    I’m not buying dbs.

    My setup will be

    Power rack
    Dip attachment
    Barbell and weights
    Bench
    Ez bar
    Chin up bar
    Bands

    Probably go with bb incline and Dips once power rack turns up.

    I spent years doing decline bench, until it was suggested I try weighted dips. I did, and the comparative gains in lower chest were unbelievable.




    Weighted dips all the way.
    Back off, Warchild.

    Seriously.

    Incline and dips

    I rarely see people do dips at my gym. It's of my fav chest exercise. Dips give u that cut line under your chest for that square aesthetic look. I neglect my chest but I do lots of dips. My chest isn't big but all that dip gave me that square look on my lower pecs rather than that round bottom look.
