    Hi ,

    Dumbbell chest press is my go to exercise for chest. I have been doing 35kg dumbell for 10 reps for a while , at times i can push to 12 reps . The next dumbell is 40 kg ,but i can’t do more than 3 reps, so i don’t even attempt it now . This has been the case for months now . How do i progress ? Do i need to eat more to get stronger ? Or try to hit 15 reps for 35 kg

    Thanks Joe .
    I am not emotionally attached to dumbell press , though barbell i haven’t done for years and my gym dsnt have any good chest machines , otherwise would have definitely gone for a machine . Do you think supper set the dumbell press with some exercise can help , or drop sets ? I do the seated roller flys anyway as a separate exercise , anything else you can think i can super set with the dumbell press. I am just concerned about hypertrophy , so i dont even mind if i dont hit 40 kg , just don’t want to stagnate in muscle building .

    I would go with my other suggestions before I would opt for superset
