Your training should have as a basis the flat bench press that we speak because it is the most complete, but if you need a bit of variation do not hesitate to exercise the chest with one of the exercises mentioned above. Finally, something fundamental is that you have a good Bank of bodybuilding to make your bench press, and recalls that the bench press should be incorporated with other exercises so that you have a smooth and full body workout in week.
