    Default Good Push Strength Gaining Workout ?

    So I have edited my push day for gaining strength. Muscles involved are chest, delts, and triceps. Each are 5x5 and on 45 lb bars when using barbell.

    1. Stretch for 1 min.

    2. Flat Barbell Bench.

    3. Standing Barbell Millitary Press.

    4. Incline Barbell Bench.

    5. Cable Rear Delt Flyes.

    6. Decline Bench Press.

    7. Close Grip Bench Press.

    I do have the time to do all of these workouts.

    Volume too high for bench press. Decline press is useless, sorry to have to break it to you. Flat bench activates way more muscle & the entire pec minor. I would suggest start with BB bench for however many sets of 5 or less, then DB incline for 2-3 sets of reps to failure. Next, OHP for the same scheme as BB bench. Assistance for this lift could be DB seated power cleans. Look them up, I learned them from the Defranco's training website & they really do a good job at activating the whole shoulder girdle & upper trap. For triceps, do either incline or flat close grip bench for low reps or cable pushdowns for high reps. make sure to alternate & do both methods during the week.
