So I'm going for bulk and I've mainly been doing Barbell bench presses and Incline barbell bench presses for my chest and I noticed that I hit a plateau. I want to start mixing in flat and incline dumbbell presses into my workout and i was just wondering whether I should do less weight/more reps or more weight/less reps for dumbbell presses. I currently do 4 sets/5reps of 155 for flat bench at 4 sets/5 reps of 145 for incline. I know i wont be doing that much for dumbbell presses but if im going for bulk, should I do more weight/less reps? Or is it the type of exercise where I should be doing less weight/more reps like i do with dumbbell flyes?
