Thread: Are Decline Presses Better Than Incline Presses?

  1. #52

    Default

    Declines are a weak exercise. Declines allow people to lift more than they could actually handle on flat or incline press. Its like asking is smith machine flat bench press more effective than barbell flat bench press. I think we all know the answer to that

    Well on that chart you posted (which is anatomy and not physiology BTW) It clearly shows the pectoralis Major ie, upper chest muscle and pectoralis minor which is lower chest so......you kind of just pwned yourself bro lol..

    You don't look like you've been training for 16 years by any means either so I wouldn't brag too much about that if indeed that is the case.

    Plus HK has been here alot longer than you think. Def not a "noob".

    Variety buddy. You cant just do falt bench all the time but I do agree that it is undoubtedly the best movement for chest period.

    Providing your shoulders are G2G otherwise your better off on a machine or smith ect..

    He's right.^^
    Technically there is a "lower" portion and an "upper" portion. You cannot isolate the "heads" of the pecs though. It doesn't matter if you are doing inclines, declines, flats... Your chest is going to grow how it is genetically predestined to grow. Which exercise is more safe? Well, that's a better question.

    Don't get all "caps locky" with me. You know I love you. The major is upper or middle and the minor is most def lower.
    I don't give a fuck what anyone says, you go do a shit load of flies and tell me what part of your chest is sore the next day.....Your inner chest... That's what the old schoolers did back in the day. I read in one of Arnolds books that he would go and do like 10 sets of just one new exercise to see where he got the most sore so he would know what that particular movement did for him personally.

    I do beleive that you can maybe not isolate but target a specific area of most any muscle group and hit that harder with certain movements.

    There are no absolutes in BBing IMO.. what works for one guys sucks dick for the next guy. One guy blows up on Tren ace and test and the next guy just leans out. One guy can grow off of 500mgs of test and it takes another guy 800-1000 to see anything. You see it all the time so I gues If you are doing something that works FOR YOU keep doing it and to hell with what anyone has to say about it.

    OK.

    I might be wrong BUT, the Pectoralis Minor is actually located UNDERNEATH the Pectoralis Major consists of the CLAVICULAR HEAD (upper chest) and the STERNOCOSTAL HEAD (mid lower chest).

    my point was that there is nothing in the anatomy chart that says upper and lower chest.....yes they are located above and below each other....but they are not called upper an lower chest.....there is def no middle or outer........the pectoralis insert at the sternum and stretch across to the deltoids.....and anything that has to do with your body falls under the category of human physiology.....my wife who is nurse was amazing that you guys are this stupid...i teach her stuff all the time and she is a college educated woman
