not making fun of you...... just suggesting that you focus on 1 thing at a time... good advice for any task in life
Isn't that why we work different bodyparts on different days?

What's the rest of your workouts look like for other bodyparts? What are your goals besides thicker chest?
Liar!!!!Filt!!!!

many moons ago i was showed a good movement by a competitive bber still use it today works best with flat db u could do it in beginning but better in end when already pump,get comfortable dumbell weight so as u finish movement at top turn hands in so dumbells face each other palms in so it finishes like a flye,,i do it with inclines too ,,so its press and as you reach top turn in dbells squeeze...if ur going to superset can't go wrong with dips/flyes or dips /crossovers at end...

WOOO

say no more...there is your problem. Stop HIT asap. Add some volume, slow and deliberate movements, squeeze and hold the contraction, drive some blood into the muscle and rest less. No need to rest more than 30-45 secs for flies f.eg. Higher reps, non of that 6 reps bs. It will work, guarantee.

 Some good advice here. I would always suggest someone performing a more complete routine. I think there is alot of underdeveloped chests among bodybuilders in general (Pro's included). Good idea starting with a incline pressing movment. If shoulders and tris take over to much on barbells hit flat with dumbells. Dip's are one of the best chest builders out there. Not arguing against those who get good results with more volume but I think adding more and more sets is a excuse to take the pedal off the intensity. Sometimes to improve a week area just takes a proper program, better focus, and execution/form.  Here is two examples you can follow. Two sets dont ussally feel like enough but as you increase weight the intensity follows.

Incline dumbell presse's 10-8-8
Flat dumbell presse's     2x8
Dip's weighted              2x8
Incline flye's                 2x8
 Or
Incline barbell presses 10-8-6
Flat barbell presses     2x6
Decline barell presses  2x8
Peck deck                 2x8-10

seems everyone here is close or about same 3-5 exercises 10-15 sets avg,u could piece together few workouts here and move and rotate different exercises depending on whats working...pretty much every exercise works well for chest .and u don't have to be a great bencher to have a great chest,...

Today I did:
Bench Press: 1 restpause set 9/5/3 reps, not to failure 1 hard rep left for each miniset
Incline db bench: warm-up set then a set of 8 to failure
flat db bench: set of 9 to failure
decline db: set of 7 to failure
flat bench cable flyes: set of 8

The decline db bench sucked, needed someone to hand me the dumbbells lol don't really like that
Triceps were too tired to do the flies with even a tiny amount of weight so in future im probably going to drop the decline db bench so I can pay more attention to the flyes
