When most people think of the chest or pectoral muscle most people automatically think of the flat bench press. No one ever notices or uses the decline bench press out there in the vast majority of the gyms!
The flat bench press has infiltrated most people’s minds and when most people train chest they most likely hop on the bench press, without giving consideration to the other vast chest exercises out there. This is due to the flat bench press being the most popular chest exercise out there. In fact it could actually be the most popular exercise in the history of mankind. However, just because it is the most popular exercise in the world, doesn’t mean it’s necessarily the best exercise out there.
If you want to gain some serious mass on your chest, consider including the decline bench press in your routine. Most bodybuilding and fitness experts recommend doing the decline bench press for greater chest development, and many bodybuilding champions such as Dorian Yates recommend it too.
Not only that, the decline bench press effectively targets the chest muscle without putting to much strain on ones shoulders or front deltoid, something which the flat bench press lacks.
Overall, please consider including the decline bench press in your chest routine for greater muscular development in your chest area. Let’s bring this exercise out from the dark and into the limelight again!
