I like this plan, and it can work, but you have to hit it the right way.
Gymnast, for the most part don't bench. but they do work there upper bodies a lot with dipping type moves, pressing type moves, and flye type moves.

Preses to the front
Side, and rear laterals
Flyes
CGBP
Dips
Medium grip chins
Bent rows
hanging pikes

Make delt training the number one priority, and do all your chest training after you have trained delts. Think in terms of how a gymnast trains.

Go heavy on your abs as well.

here's something i usually use when lifting: if you complete your workout and still feel like lifting, keep lifting..... just add them (db bench) on to the end on days you dont want to leave the gym

I'm not a fan of taking any of the big 3 out of a routine for a a long period of time I say just throw in dips with BB or DB press.

he is keeping CGBP.... depending on how close it is, it should help his bench to continue progressing.... SO, i would do it at the knurling

that's what i'm going to do, not too close but i guess shoulder width which is this knurling i think.

on another note, should I do BTN push presses first in the routine then dips or dips first? GL was saying i should do push presses first which i've never done but I may just do that

with your plan i'd do BTN, DIPS (make sure to focus on chest!(lean forward)), CGBP, if you still feel good DB bench

presses will wear you down less than the other lifts becuase you use leg drive. this will leave you fresh for the other lifts

Front presses will hit your upper pecs well enough, and dips are the upper body squat. Finish off with flyes.
