    Bench press Front Delt Fatigue

    When I do bench press, my front delts usually fatigue before my chest does. What are some good ways to pre-fatigue my pecs before I go into bench press?

    Pre-fatigue? You could try more of an isolation movement like dumbell flyes or cable crossovers before your bench.
    Also try widening your grip a little more when doing bench.

    Any way you could record your bench? Maybe a form adjustment can eliminate that delt fatigue. Where do you position the bar? How wide is your grip? etc.

    wouldn't you want to pre-fatigue your delts so you're relying more on your pecs during the bench? Honestly, I just changed my form (due to the problem you're experiencing) and had the best chest workout of my life. First, I decreased the weight that I do sets for, narrowed my grip a little, brought my elbows in, and most importantly, concentrated on the negative for about 3 seconds, did a complete static hold at the bottom for 1-1.5 secs, then only went up so far as to maintain the tension on my chest. I just told this to someone else in another thread, and have been telling everyone that I know who works out because it was so effective (usually not "that guy" but I found this form to be THAT effective). Hope this helps.

    Try tucking your shoulder blades in together. It puts less stress on your shoulders and puts it into the chest.

    Like he said, keep your shoulder blades pinched together the whole time. Don't press the weight all the way up either to where it seperates your shoulder blades. Keep them pinched and it will isolate your chest more rather than your front delts.

    how about, don't do flat barbell bench because for many people (like yourself) it sucks as a chest exercise?

    The great Vince Gironda claimed bench pressing is 90% front delts and didn't consider it a chest workout..he preferred dips for chest...
