    doesnt a flat bench press work the whole chest the sternal head and the clavical head and even the pec minor.

    becuz u cant tense the pec minor and pec major seperately i assumed that when u bench press it also hits the pec minor so i dropped flyes outa my workout.... i never liked isolation anway

    Exactly. It can't hurt to incorporate them all. Do decline every other week or so. Mix up your angles and grips. I too am looking for that slab look though with the line underneath. I think it just comes with mass..

There is NO separate lower chest muscle. If you look at a bodybuilder with massive pecs, the line you see underneath the chest is an illusion. It happens because the chest muscles are so heavy that gravity pulls them down, which causes a crease, which looks like lower pec definition. I know for a fact that a lot of the pros don't bother with bull**** decline benches, however incline bench presses are beneficial since they do target the upper head of the chest.

    let the argument begin.

    If anyone is still interested in the debate, watch this video of Dorian Yates.

    http://videos.bodybuilding.com/watch...r-chest-biceps

    He is "somewhat" of a pro and he doesn't seem to think decline bench is BS. He instructs users of the video to decline instead of flat because it moves the arms along the path that the pec major naturally pulls: accross and DOWN the chest. Decline works the biggest muscle of the chest directly. I also find that it is much safer on the joints, which is a huge plus.

    I cannot believe this business is still going on, 11 years later.

    Oh wait, yes I can.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    There's no upper chest either. Decline stresses the lower fibers more, incline stresses the upper fiber more. simple as.

    Wrong. Looks like someone needs to re-visit anatomy & physiology 101. Incline Press works the upper fibers of the pectoralis major. The pectoralis minor is underneath the pec-major and doesn't contribute much to the lift.

    What you're thinking of is the CLAVICULAR and STERNAL portions of the pectoralis MAJOR.
