    Lightbulb Incline, Decline and Flat Bench Press differences?

    Hi
    What is the difference between the Incline, decline and flat bench press?
    I know how each of them is performed, but I mean what is the difference as to the muscles worked? or is it just preference?
    Thanks for your help

    the more declined it is, the less shoulders and the more lats (if you can get the feel for using lats in bench)

    the higher the incline the more delts and less chest

    obviously, if you think about it, if you incline it enough it becomes a military press which is a delt move




    the range of motion also gets longer as you incline it more.....a decline is shortest range of all



    your strength should be highest at the decline, then gradually weaken as you go to flat, then incline, then overhead etc

    The more the incline the more upper chest and then shoulders. The more decline the more lower chest.

    the difference is the elevation in the height and the diferent types of muscles bieng worked, ut whr=w=en you are inclined your are mainly working the deltoids, or shoulders mind you,=, but a flat bench press is mainly working the chest or pectoralis maor, and triceps if you do clode grip it will focus more on tri's trust me i used to be skinny as well, it will be very quick for you to get lean quickly i would try doing doing squats llike a front squat with your feet forward shoulder width apart and do like a dead likft then at chest point, rool it up on your palm and do a military pres then come back down in a deadlift stance. good luck

    actually it barely works the lower chest you would have to do a lot of dips and it would actually work the tri's.

    wtf?
    It's UriEl btw

    Things I will take any chance I get to make fun of:

    -HIT
    -Frank Zane as Mr. Olympia
    -Biceptz boyz
    -Fat powerlifters talking thrash about bodybuilding while claiming to close the #x gripper
    -Overtraining
    -"How can I look like >random 140lbs guy<?"
    -HIT
    -Self-righteous guys who try to make everybody sound racist.
    -Phil Heath for Mr. Olympia
    -Strength workouts for bodybuilding

    I'll keep updating the list.

    look at the differences in your back arching during the three...incline has less, followed my flat, followed by decline. Less back arch (not eliminating, just keeping it natural), more pec involvement.

    i dunno if u actually hit your latswhile doing ANY kind of benchpress....seeing as how you actually have to PULL wight to your body to work out the lats.......could be wrong though

    Doesn't make sense to me either, but the lats do get worked when you do benchpress, in some of the vids I've seen you can see their lats working as they do it.

    Check out the strength training anatomy book, you are actually using a lot of your musclez to push a weight up, however the chest would be the big daddy in this one.

    Thanks for your help
