    upper chest exercise (without bench)

    Hi guys,

    I've just invested in some weight equipment after a lengthy layoff.

    I got a chin/dip station, a barbell and some dumbells.

    I think i have all bases covered except for upper chest.

    I'll be doing dips as a chest exercise but wondered whether this will also do my upper chest?

    I don't current have a bench.

    example exercises i'm doing:
    back (deadlift, bent over rows, chins)
    chest(dips)
    shoulders (military press, lateral raises)
    biceps( BB curls, hammer curls)
    triceps( extensions, kickbacks )
    legs (squat, lunges)

    doing a 6 day split (back/bi, chest/shoulder/tri, legs, repeat, sunday rest)

    Dips are for your lower chest. Incline push ups will hit your upper chest. Put your dumbbells in a backpack and wear it during the exercise to increase resistance.

    Pushups are actually great for your middle and upper chest.

    stretch a rubber band, there is equal tension from either side of pull. This is how a muscle works, one cannot isolate an insertion or attachment point regardless of direction of resistance.
