just looking for any feed back
this should probably get moved to exercise science...
do you do ALL of those exercises each workout?
.. i do 1 chest exercise for 3 sets...
You do not do 10 exercises on chest day, do you
I guess if you're doing 1 set per exercise, that might work. Just pick one flat, one decline (or dips) and on incline. You can also add some isolation (cables/butterflies). Mix it up every workout with one exercise for each of these types of stimulus and you'll be good.
i usually do dumbells 4 sure then choose 1 of the remaining 2 exercises for each angle. equals 18 sets on chest. i try to keep my muscles guessing...thanks 4 the feedback
unless you're doing one set per exercise, undoubtabley you're over doing it. Ill back your chest routine off to a few compound exericse followed by some isometric exercises. Take my chest workout today for example
3 working sets flat dumb. press
3 sets incline barbell press
3 sets weighted dips
2 sets low incline dumb. flys
2 sets low cable cross over
Even this for some, is a lot. I like volume but you still should keep the work sets down around a dozen
i cut that ten down to 6 2nite and felt a much better pump and focus. thanks for the info.
whats the proper # of sets one should do
I usually do around 6 sets for chest, my current chest routine looks like this: Flat bb: 3 sets
Incline DB: 2 sets
Weighted dips: 1 set
i do nine sets
just a question why do you do db bench first?
i always feel i get a better pump from the heavier weight i can fet from bb bench. and finish up with some sort of db press or incline press or flys. I normally do 5 sets of 5 or 4 sets 8 to 12. it might be pshycological but i dont know.
I prefer to do incline presses first. But, of course I switch it up.
I do a four-day split
You need to warm up those shoulders before you do chest .
I find for me (especially on the juice) that if I do 4X6 real heavy I put on more muscle than if I did 3X8.
That my story and I’m sticking to it!

I do 9 sets twice per week for chest. I'd say it depends how your body responds to volume, and adjust it to the ammount of volume your body handles best.
You could also pre-exhaust your chest with pec-deck or fly's first.Then go to dumbell presses.
