Flat BB or Incline DB first?

  1. Flat BB or Incline DB first?


    What do you think is best to start with on chest day? Flat BB Press or Incline DB Press?


  2. i focus on bb incline and decline on chest days, i feel that incline builds my chest more than flat ever did...i do incline, decline, incline flies, weighted dips...

  3. For what goal?

    One must ask this question first for sure.

  5. Size and strength

  6. I usually switch between BB Flat (guilty of not switching from this sometimes) and BB Incline. You can lift the most weight with the BB so feel it works best to hit some heavy sets right out of the gate fresh.

  7. Flat then DB work or dips for assistance work.

  8. go with the part of your chest that is lagging first... That way you have better chance for growth in that area

    nope....

  11. I do incline bb bench at a low incline, then flat db press, then decline flies. I was thinking about switching to flat flies and decline db bench press. Idk if this would help build my chest more, but I've been thinking about trying it. I've been doing bb incline presses for awhile now and flat presses with the bar feel awkward, even though I press at a low incline like 30 degree.

  12. Well most need to pull-up their upper pecs so I would say the incline movements first.

    I usually alternate anyways,my chest days always focus on incline then flat pressing.Alternate it between db,barbell and machine pressing.Works a charm

  13. flat first then incline
