If you’ve been hitting chest hard every week by incorporating flat, incline, and decline bench press into your routine but haven’t seen the growth you’d like to see in your chest; Elliot Hulse might have an explanation as to why. “A bench press is a press, as appose to a chest stimulator or an isolator of the chest muscles”. Pressing will help you obtain a stronger, bigger, better bench press – which includes muscles like your triceps and shoulders. Elliot argues that depending on your form when you bench press, you might be getting more of a tricep workout than anything else. Elliot goes on to advise workouts such as dumbbell flies which isolate the chest and take triceps out of the equation.
