OUR ADVICE

Your exercises, sets, and reps are all well-chosen, so we have to assume the problem is recovery. Always leave a rep or two “in the tank” on every set. Your chest will grow faster with good technique and no lost time due to injury. 

Hold Back

When you avoid training to failure on exercises like dips it actually helps you make progress.
