I'm just questioning whether my decision to only use incline dumbbell presses and no flat presses was a wise one...?
Basically, when I first started a few years back I only ever did flat presses and flyes etc. My pecs did develop but I ended up with what I can only describe as "droopy / almost saggy" looking pecs. After reading around a good bit on the net (inc. here) I came to the conclusion that this was the result of me only having done flat presses.
I don't know how true this is, as my understanding is that the pectorals are just one muscle and not several different ones. But what I read was that flat presses work more the lower pecs and thus if only done can result in that saggy look.
That was over a year back now, and having since only done incline presses and also focused a lot more on cardio / intensity training etc my pecs are fine again, but I don't seem to be able to build them up much.
So two ques:
1) Are flat presses really more effective for putting on more mass on the chest?
2) Are there certain body types that react "badly" to too many flat presses (droppy looking pecs etc)?
