You were tired because............wait for it!..........the BB bench press is a compound lift that requires a lot from the body (..when performed properly). If you are looking to put on size, I'd prioritize barbell work before dumbbell work.

Also, pinching your shoulder blades at the end of each rep is unnecessary. Your focus should be driving your hips through the movement.
