dips and incline press enough?

I am thinking about doing only dips and incline DB press for chest. I would do dips twice a week, once 6x4 and the other 3x8, and incline once something in the range of 4x6 or so. Do u think these movements will work my chet well enough? I have never liked DB flat press, and barbell bench hurts my shoulders...

I love dips and incline though

    i now only use dips+db-incline for chest and its much better for it ,i do dips twice a week but one lot is upright for arms with back, i do bi's with chest. hit it hard and up the weight when you can and your be fine.

    My chest gets small if I don't do an incline exercise...

    I'm basically doing one high intensity day of dips with moderate intensity incline, and one heavy dip day. I like dips because they hit my tri's and chest together very well...

    i do incline db press then weighted dips for my second session on chest in the week.

    keep it intense

    apart from the correct advice stone gave to keep it intense, if you want a separate exercise to work your chest add DB flyes, seem to work well for me.

    I wasn't so much looking for another exercise, I just wanted to see if it was a good idea to do dips twice instead of doing two different exercises...

    DB flyes sond good though. I really like dips lol, I got a weight belt and can't get enough of them

    What's the reason for doing two different rep ranges?

    I do other exercises on that day that are 10x3 for my back, so I don't want to tax the CNS to much.

    Kind of a weird workout I made, combination of mostly Waterbury and some others... I like it a lot so far, but my chest development has lagged behind. That's why I thought doing the dips twice would provide better stimulus. Maybe it's too much of the same thing. Haven't tried it yet...

    For those who don't know Waterbury, here's a link to one of his articles...
