    Default inclines for me

    i prefer focusing more on inclines and flat presses although every other week i do throw in either db or barbell decline into my workouts. but my focus is always on inclines for that big upper chest.

    For me, I feel that incline presses really builds up my chest area, I did some decline but mostly with DBs and I still prefer the incline

    bent the frame on decline bench when i was in my 20's
    if i hadn't used it up i'm sure i would have man-boobs by now after gaining and losing 80 pounds
    now i do weighted dips (belt around neck)
    could not imagine a chest without it
    wouldn't be a chest
    would be an etching on my rib cage with a sweater roll going around my armpits

    butthere is no way i would leave inclines out
    if anything, i would leave flat position out
    low-angle decline and incline and no flat i could see

    Inclines are the best here's what I do

    Incline BB warmup w bar 2 sets
    Then do whatever weight is challenging for you for the next 3 sets 12 reps
    Then 4th set add 10lbs to that and till failure

    DB Inclines- 4 sets any weight that you can get 8 good reps with

    Pec Flys/ Cable Crossovers 3 sets 10 reps squeeze every rep and have short rest periods, here stretch and squeeze the chest while resting and you're done. Stick to this for a good 8 weeks you will have a massive chest.

    I prefer decline only on machines. I feel that I get a mucher better contraction than the free version

    Incline presses are great, I haven't done a decline bench in years now.

    I feel more activation in my pecs from declines than inclines.

    x2 I feel more outer, mid, and lower pec with declines than any other single exercise.

    I work with Phil Hernon and we focus on Declines. I feel it more in my pecs with declines that with inclines. With inclines, I feel like the shoulders are activated more and are used more in the press. I prefer declines for this reason

    I prefer decline more than incline. I can lift heavier and my shoulder doesn't hurt when I do them, so that is a big PLUS in my book!
