View Full Version : Flat Bench - soreness location

11-05-2009, 10:56 AM
I have noticed that whenever I do flat bench with barbell I always get sore in my front delt/shoulder area and never get sore on my pecs. But when I do bench with DB's I get sore on my pecs and not my delts. Are any of you guys the same or is it just me. I think a lot of it stems from my technique on FB with BB where I tuck my elbows alot and on DB I tend to flare my elbows more.

So what's the problem? Is your main priority getting a big bench, or building up your pecs?

In ever get sore in my pecs, even though mine are pretty beefy compared to the rest of me. This is how it has been for as long as I remember. I think its pretty much genetics. I DO get very sore in the delt region though.

Raw I get sore in the pecs, shirted I feel it in the upper back and a little in the triceps.

With dumbells in the pecs and front delts.
