    no flat bench

    yo teen brahs, you mad i only do incline work and dips for chest?

    3x incline bar
    3x incline db press
    3x incline flys
    3x chest dips

    flat bench is overrated, doing mostly incline is the secret to an aesthetic chest imo.

    any other teen brahs only do incline?

    why would that make us mad?
    And an aesthetic chest would be one that is well balanced all over, by doing dips and incline you are only hitting upper and lower pecs

    I enjoy the flat bench barbell press as well as the incline and decline presses. Each has their own purposes and uses.

    i would say incorporate flat, incline and decline.. that way your atleast hitting all aspects of your chest, top to bottom. i pesonally like dumbbell bench way better than bar; it hits the chest so much harder in my opinion..

    and cant forget flyes/crossovers atleast to hit the inside of your titties.

    There are only two chest muscles, there is no such thing as a "lower pec". You are wasting your time trying to train places such as the inside of your chest and your lower chest. They dont exist it is all one muscle (and upper pecs ofcourse), its like trying to train one out of your six abdominals.

    I am well aware that there are only two major pectoral muscles. However there are ways to vary where the majority of the stress is placed doing various exercises.

    For example, I made the mistake of using a very, very wide grip on the basic bench press and I later came to realize that I could only feel the stress being placed on the outer pectorals and not on the inner pectorals. Now, the whole pectoral muscle may be worked, but I could definitely feel the stress being far more emphasized on the outer pecs.

    Not true u can't isolate parts of ur chest alone, only target areas a little more but ur always working the muscle as a whole.

    Out of all the exercises for building your chest,flat pressing is at the bottom or close to it .

    I don't do incline bench. Mostly do flat and decline and do dips every time at the gym.

    Works for me.

    i think dips and decline bench are similar so you need one or the other. Flat DB bench is great + Incline BB. Add in some flyes and you should hit most chest fibres.
    To get dem chesticles I think you just need to have balance, dont spend more time on one angle than you would on another. This means changing incline and flat or decline to first in the workout sometimes instead of always starting with flat or vice versa.

    I know plenty of people who have never done "decline" bench before, but you most definitely need to do flat bench and incline bench/press. Now, if you are someone who just really wants to get rid of man boobs, than I would strictly focus on incline, but if you are trying to get stronger, bulk, etc then you should have the standard bench press in your workout routine. lol

    i agree this is mostly true but different variations activate certain muscle fibers more than others. an yeah you cant train one of the abs but dont crunches emphasize the top portion and leg lifts emphasize the lower. same with every muscle you gotta hit em at every angle imo

    I've been doing decline only for about a year since my bench broke and won't stay flat without shaking. I like flat bench better though, and I have always hated incline and probably wouldn't do them even if I could.

    lol no, in any chest movement you are contracting the whole pec which means your hitting the whole thing. i would replace incline dumbbell press with decline flies though
