Thread: Massive Upperchest
02-17-2005, 06:42 PM #1
i'm lookin to build up my upperchest,
i currently do incline bench,
incline arnold presses (dumbell press where the dumbells are horizontal, in relation to your body, and then press them in a triangular motion touching at the peak in the center),
and just plain flat bench arnold/dumbell presses...
do you guys suggest anything else for building that up?

Justin, if it's hard on your shoulder it's because you're cocking your elbows out with respect to your body. keep your elbows tucked in during any pressing movement.
Incline dumbell flies with as much weight as you can safely do is great for adding size to your upper chest. I do them immediately after dumbell incline. Make sure the bench isn't up too high.. if that's the case you start using too much of your front delts. I set it at the lowest inclined setting, which is typically about 25-30 degrees.

by the sounds of the 'arnold press', it's going to put a hefty toll on your shoulder/rotor cuff's the heavier you go, which could lead to short and long term injury's.

i do same as you, just add one of following (and switch up every week)
pec-dec & hammerstrength
weighted dips & lower cables
dumbell pullovers & flyes
pick and choose as you will.

i dont see how it could be putting too much stress on my rotator cuff/shoulders... its like doing a combination of a flye and a press. let me see if i can find a site with it..

What's the difference? If these two move have a strenght relation, it goes both ways. No?

So what you guys are saying is that a low incline is better than the high ones that are usually fixed on the bench station?
Also do you guys think it is better to bring the bar down low; like about nipple line or high closer to the clavicle (collar bone)?
