OK, it’s just about time to change my “lifting routine”. I usually change it up every 6-8 weeks, but I’m thinking about incorporating some decline barbell presses for my chest days. I’ve done this exercise before, but didn’t really get anything from it. Is it something worth doing in a regular basis or just something to throw in here and there?
What has anyone else found when using a decline press?
The decline bench provided that you are using a regular grip is predominantly a tricep exercise. Remember that the chest for the most part adducts the arms, which is why to build a big chest most people need to incorporate a flye movement.
luca- the reason you are probably uncomfortable with the movement is because you may not be keeping your elbows in and/or bringing the bar to touch below your sternum.
