Weighted dips for increasing bench press
Has anyone here boosted their bench significantly with gradual increases on weighted dips? Bench press increase in smaller or larger increments?

Also, will we see an 800 pound raw bench within the next 20 years?

It would probably help but weighted dips are a great exercise in their own right.

Close grip bench and weighted ring pushups work great. Dips help shoulder press more than anything

re: Weighted dips for increasing bench press
My best bench of 435 came from heavy dips and close grip bench. At that point I did 5 plates for 8-10. My CG was around 315 for sets of 10.

I just purchased a dip attachment for my gym and will be the main accessory movement.

How close were your hands on close grip bench?

Dips
Over head press
Reverse grip close bench press work great
I'm not a fan of skill crushers, they wreck my elbows. Then again my left elbow (my dominant side) feels different than my right

Then tris, though. And maybe. I doubt twenty, though.
