Once you have built some good solid balanced delts, then start putting some effort into chest.

Standing presses, and dips will yield good compound upperbody strength, and give you a good base to build from later.
I think this is a solid approach. Too many young lifters are lateral-a-holics on the delts, and don't focus on strengthening them.

When I really started to focus on delts, my bench rocketed up.
