    Justin do you think smith machine(incline) is better pushing movement for upper chest then just with barbell?

    Both have their place but I personally don't do alot of barbell presses I feel more stimulation from the smith or hammer strength

    Dumbbells work too! But here is my philsophy sometimes. I need to use 150lbs to be effective for me. And I really feel like I lose 1-2 reps when I gotta carry them half way across the gym to a bench then the process of getting them from my knees(point A) to my chest(point B) getting started. I will either finish the workout with lighter dumbbells or if I have a training partner we will sit the dumbbells up on each others knees so don't waste energy getting ready for the set!

    Do you do anything in particular to make sure your shoulders don't overpower your chest? Both are huge on you, but it seems a lot of top amateurs and pros seem to hit a point where their shoulders overtake their chest and make it seem weaker by comparison.
    I min/max my physique

    That's why you roll them over and have someone pick them up and put them on your knee!

    But yeah doing that, or even just trying to bring them from the ground to your knees does waste a lot. I usually sit there with the dumbbells in my knees for a good minute to recover and fully give the set everything
