The consensus among my training partners is we are all lacking in upper chest strength, which is in turn effecting our benches in equipment. one lifter has gone from a 611 bench to around 595, he claims his upper chest is effecting his lift. I have seen little progress, but in the past never trained the upper chest hard. how important are inclines do you think in development of the upper chest, and is the upper chest THAT important in equipment? Just looking for others opinions and experiences.
