I change it every week, been training so long if I do the same workout two weeks in a row my body adapts and I will not be sore in wk3.
I rotate something like this
03-01-2007, 05:09 PM
believe it or not....warm up with db flys

Assuming you mean warmups, I usually start and end with Dips.
Not counting warmups, I start with whatever area needs the most work (upper, middle, lower).

most of the good strength coaches say to warm up then do your regular bench work and then alternate assistance work regularly. like bench/inlines/pressdowns or bench/dips/skullcrushers. charles poloquin and also westside have exellent routines you can try.

Straight bench. I like to get it out of the way first.

Flat bench - the main exercise for chest. You need all your strength for it

I start with the dumbell presses. As a side note to dsade's comment, I like my masturbation post-workout

i switch between flys and incline to start sometimes starting with flys really makes it burn
03-30-2007, 09:28 PM
start with dips sometimes to change it up

incline DB or cable crossovers. Either way those are always my first two exercises.

ive always been starting with flat benching, but i havent been experiencing any substantial chest growth... a lot of good ideas here.
generally the first exercise you do for any muscle has the greatest effect on strengthening and enhancing that body part. to add mass to the upper chest, it seems like incline presses should be a good starting exercise.
but then again, its important to change it up often i guess

I rotate my exercises around however every 3rd session.

Regular DB Bench, but like everone else i rotate
05-10-2007, 09:04 PM
I guess I'm the only one who's going with decline for starters...I've personally gotten the best gains from it when compared to flat or incline
EDIT: I tried doing 30 degree inclines today with db's and I gotta say I love it! I usually refrained from incline in the past because the fixed angle benches for a bb were always too steep and seemed to work my shoulders more than anything, but I think I've seen the light in using db's now!

First cable pushdowns and then DIPS. With these my arms and chest are well warmed up.
06-04-2007, 04:21 PM
flat bb bench, then incline db's, then decline bb, then usually some cable work pulls, then decline macnhine for high reps!

Dips - Bodyweight exercises rule. I figure this is like my goal of doing chins, then once I can do enough chins / dips with BW I'll add some plates on the chain etc.

I see a lot of talk about doing incline first for upper chest development...Hasn't it been proven you cannot isolate lower, mid and upper chest? All incline does is bring front delts into the movement more.

Take a look at this article, it gives a way to isolate mid chest
