    Hi there Bryce!
    I’ve got a few questions.
    What is the difference between lowering your smith bar to your middle chest versus lowering it higher (closer to the chin) on the jm press when talking about triceps recruitment?
    What are advantages and disadvantages of a more tucked in elbows , and if I’m able to keep my elbows tucked in when performing the “lowering closer to the chin”, should I continue doing it like that and is there a chance that it will result in greater gains?
    Thanks in advance!
    Sincerely,
    David

    What worked for me is that I began focusing on my form. I’ve dropped the weight a little bit, I have been keeping my chest up and shoulders rolled backwards during the pressing movement (keep in mind that you can’t push your hands that far when your shoulders are back). I had one chest day at the start of my “transformation” where I tryed every possible exercise and found what suits me

    Those exercises were bench press, incline db press, incline smith press, incline machine press, flat db flyes and seated cable flyes.

    Also, I found that a full rest day before chest/push day helped me a ton. My current split is ppl with every other push being just a chest day. (The remaining shoulders and triceps from that 2nd push I just do on the seperate day-preferably 2 days before)
    The split looks something like this:

    Rest
    Full push
    Pull/calves
    Rest
    Legs/abs
    Shoulders/triceps/calves
    Rest
    Chest
    Pull/calves
    Main advice that I can tell you is that you find here how the program should look like (volume) and then find what suits you. Also, rest day before push or chest is a must for me and I take any other rest days when I feel like, split mentioned above is just an example.

    That’s like saying that you don’t need any kinds of presses for chest, but you do. If that isn’t the case, everyone would be just doing flyes.

    My point is, if there are compound and isolation exercises for bigger muscles in a program, why is there none for the smaller ones?
