    What exercises besides dips and declined bench can build your lower chest? Should you do declined dumbell exercises?

    There is no lower chest. You have learned bb'ing rule #1.

    There are only 2 chest muscle, pectoralis major and pectoralis minor.

    why must some smart ass that knows you can't REALLY isolate a chest muscle on the lower side always come in?

    bb rule #1. everyone knows that and know one likes to have to say it everytime. there is no point to your smart ass comment. to work the lower chest you aren't going to do incline bench smart guy.

    Exclamation

    Wait, so you can't build your lower chest from a decline any more than a normal bench?

    Talking Alright... You asked for it.

    And it works... You never look smart.

    thats been an ongoing thing on this board for a while whether or not their are different parts to your chest and whether or not you can isolate a part of it better. Scientifically I have no Idea whether or not, but in my opinion yes you can hit certain parts of the chest harder with different angles. just look at a pic of franco columbu, his chest has a cut going right across the middle separating the top and bottom. Im sure Ill get flamed for this though

    You can emphasize different parts of a muscle, but you really can't isolate anything. You are still exercising the muscle as a whole. I personally do decline DB press because I feel that it hit my pecs hard, and makes them grow. It may add some size to the lower portion of my pecs, it may not. But I know that it makes my chest as a whole grow, and my lower chest is part of my chest () so it grows too.

    why not just do decline bench? it has the same motion range as you mentioned in dips.

    "just look at a pic of franco columbu, his chest has a cut going right across the middle separating the top and bottom"

    That's genetic, it has to do with how and where the pec's are attached to bone. It's the same deal as why Ronnie Coleman has a wide space between his rectus abdominus (abs) and other have perfectly aligned 6-pack ... even though they all do the same exercises.

    This is my favorite quote ever on this message board (and it's in this thread)

    "i would say the best feature, well i have quite a few, buyt a wide chest is something i am proud of. so here is my split and i recomend it greatly."

    Picture a slot machine. That's what I'm doing with my eyes. Good Lord.

    To this I would add DIPS and weighted dips, over decline bp. Also decline flys will assist in development.

    LOL hey MrB if you want a good laugh read my sig LOL do you think I should add it into my list LOL

    D-Termine didn't I tell you to stay out of the exercise forum you keep making an ass out of yourself. I have a better idea get off of this site because you know zero about bodybuilding. Go back into the misc section were you belong.

    Can you believe D-Termine thinks he will be a MOD on these boards one day LOL and I'm going to be President one day LOL what a fool.

    i like it:d

    drewbie thnx for the backing, i think.....

    but i don't think that deadlifts build up traps, alot

    based upon

    i have NEVER read about it

    and they don't for ME

    but if it works for some people all i can do is say "if it works for you and i am very skeptical"

    this whole watching the way i say things is a bitch. i like to type quick and post. i really don't like being so careful with my wording. if i get sloppy it only allows people, well **** packers like wiseguy, to miss quote you and take things like sarcasm out of context. like the bread and butter comment.

    i guess its different for everybody on how much their traps come into play but sometimes my traps hurt more from deadlifting then they do from shrugs, i guess its do to the tremendous amount of weight they need to help stabalize

    For crying out loud, I am sick of this 'deadlifts don't build traps' bull****. It is not a direct trapezius exercise, but at the top of the motion there is a 'chest thrust' motion, which feels a bit like a shrug. Shrugs do build traps, therefore they can assist in the development. Its a bit like saying 'chins don't build the biceps' or 'benching won't build your triceps' - it is, and they are, compound movements, and consequently they will all help with various muscle groups. It isn't written anywhere, you just have to think about how the different muscle groups work whilst performing a lift. Now, get over it.

    BUMP 'DAT!!!

    my sentiments exactly.........
    I hurt myself today
    To see if I still feel
    I focus on the pain
    The only thing that's real
    The needle tears a hole
    The old familiar sting
    Try to kill it all away
    But I remember everything


    Even in a sport where your objective is to gain musclular size and balance through the movement and resistance of variable weights in countless different motions..........

    KNOWLEDGE IS THE ULTIMATE POWER.

    do dips - they are better than decline bench because they involve moving the whole body and most importantly don't argue in the exercise section

    why is it though D&G that they work it better, cause I always feel it more in the lower pces doing dips then decline bench. Its the same for pullups, I feel those more in my lats than pulldowns.

    Probably has to do with natural range of motion.
    A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man.

    "Out of damp and gloomy days, out of solitude, out of loveless words directed at us, conclusions grow up in us like fungus: one morning they are there, we know not how, and they gaze upon us, morose and gray. Woe to the thinker who is not the gardener but only the soil of the plants that grow in him."
    -Nietzsche

    so the more natural the motion the more the muscle fibers are effectively hit I would suppose.
