I worked my chest to hell last night doing flies and flat bench presses. It's pretty sore today but today is my arms/abs day and I've been wanting to incorporate the Incline Bench Press into it. (As my chest is far too worn out after doing my usual chest workout the night before) Trouble is I'm not sure if this is smart as my chest is already sore.
The following site says that Incline Bench Press works the Pectoralis Major, Clavicular muscle - which is illustrated as a completely different muscle. Is this true? If my general pecs are sore from flat benches and flies is it okay to workout with Incline Bench Press the next day? Or will it still work my sore main chest muscle too? Because I don't want to not let it recover!
Says Incline Bench Press (http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/...enchPress.html) works the Pectoralis Major, Clavicular
(http://www.exrx.net/Muscles/PectoralisClavicular.html) Where as the Flat Bench Press works the Pectoralis Sternal (http://www.exrx.net/Muscles/PectoralisSternal.html)
It says that the main pecs aren't even a Synergist or Stabilizer during the Incline Bench Press. Is this true? Seems quite odd that an exercise so similar to the regular bench wouldn't be affecting the main pec muscle at all?
Thanks in advance!
