As I've said before, I don't have a spotter, so I can't really bench. I do DB presses and flies for my chest, though, which I love doing and have had nice gains in. Can I add more to my max bench (I max when I occasionally get a spotter) without actually benching? I know the best way to gain strength is to go heavy with low reps, but since I can't, would it help to go light with a lot of reps, or would I not gain much strength? Or if I continue to do DB presses and flies - going heavy on those - will that alone make me bench more? Thanks in advance.
