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)
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.

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.Owner of Galenfit.com
