Would lying down on the ground with dumbbells in each hand and doing flys be just as effective as doing them lying down on a bench? I have a shoulder problem, well its mostly healed but only bothers me when there is a range of motion behind my body.
Doing this would prevent the weight from doing just that...which is why i ask.
My bench is really not going up at all, i am kinda frustrated, everything else is moving up steadily (bulking) and i am doing everything i can in an abundance in hopes to get it up, a modified cable crossover, dips, and a lot of other tricep exercises like barbell lying tricep extensions, overhead cable press, cable push downs, and some others to build up triceps. I am dominant with back and leg exercises and chest is my weak point, bench has only gone up 10 lbs, from 135 to 145 in 6 weeks, i use the 4-6 rep range, but was doing 8-10 for a little with a lighter weight to change things up.
I have read countless articles on proper bench form, watched videos and even use a really light weight to mimic exactly that and am trying as hard as i can.
Does everyone have a slow building muscle group or weakness? Maybe im overthinking, not expecting huge gains or miracles though.
