Isolations before compounds such as doing flys before your heavy pressing or pec decs or cables before pressing movements, this will fatique your chest so during your compounds your chest will fatique much before your secondary muscles making your chest workout purely focus on your chest more. Arnold often used this method, it will also help preserve joint health as you'll be going lighter on your presses

Slowly ramp up in weight with little rest before coming to your working sets.

Grab an adjustable incline bench. Set it 4 notches up from being flat. Grab a weight you can do for 15 reps on this angle. Knock out 15, then IMMEDIATELY drop the incline one notch, knock out another 15, IMMEDIATELY drop another notch, 15 more, till you're at a flat bench for 15 reps. Repeat twice more, then start your routine. -EK

what is the ideal incline height? is it preference or does it actually matter... i feel like my incline db bench hight is slightly lower than normal.

Do 3-4 sets of max-out pushups before starting your normal chest routine.

I think that's pretty individual specific, but I've read somewhere between 30-45 degrees. -EK
