    When should I Barbell Bench on chest day?

    June 5, 2017, 7:59 am

    So this is my current chest day routine:

    Dumbell incline bench press - (3*10) (~20kg)

    Dumbell incline flies - (3*12) (~14kg)

    Flat smith machine bench press - (2* exhaustion (usually around 10-12 reps)) (~70-80kg)

    Pec dec fly - (3*12-15) (~70kg)

    Dumbell pullover - (3*10) (~12-14kg)

     

    Me and my training buddy wanted to add in a standard barbell bench press at some stage, but we aren't sure where to put it, or whether to do it on a different day entirely (powerlifting philosophy would seem to suggest doing it first so you are at your strongest, but obviously, the dumbell press works stabilizers and stuff more, so is also well suited to being done first.

    Thanks in advance!

    My info (in case you need):

    Age: 18

    Height: 182cm

    Weight: 80kg

    Bodyfat: ~18-20%

    Goal: Mostly muscle gain/a bit of strength (a few PBs on bench, squat et.c)

    Excercising for: Just over 6 months

    Daily calories: Usually around 3000

    Macros: Not 100% sure, around 180-220g protein usually, fairly good quality food else

    Injuries: None

    You seem to know the basics. So that means its up to you. You want the added strenght then do it first. You want the stabilizers to work more then do it later. Depends on your goal.
