    Moobs are a product of higher body fat. Keep the BF% lower and you wont have any problems.

    You can flex muscle but can't flex fat.

    That's a good test to see if you got moobs or pecs.

    Declines are a great pec developer. I'm much stronger on declines than flat. It feels more like a weighted dip, in my opinion. And, declines are a bit easier on my sensitive old shoulders.

    No way you'll get man boobs unless you get fat. Or, if you get your nuts cut off.

    I just started declines for this very reason: easier on my shoulders. I literally haven't benched on a decline bench in 12 years, but I immediately was much stronger the very first workout that I returned to it.

    Sort of.....

    Decline bench doesn't "give" you manboobs.

    But - guys WITH manboobs should avoid it and focus on incline and flat. The reason is that decline bench builds muscle in the lower part of your pec (where men with boobs already have a lot of mass = fat).

    If guys WITH manboobs do a lot of decline bench then they are just building up muscle mass behind their boobs which will make them look bigger.

    The rationale suggets the boob guys should focus on incline as that builds the upper chest which can help offset the fat at the lower chest (from an appearance perspective).

    If anything a steeper decline might give you a flatter line under your pecs. I think it was wide grip dips (which is similar) that is attributed to Vince Gironda pec development.
