    decline's easier on your shoulders and can go a long way toward building a full chest. I see no reason to leave it out :dunno:

    while it's not the best exercise in the world if you are limited to using only dumbbells there aren't many other options to switch things up with

    another variation of flat press i saw on TNation or something once was to do flat dumbbell press but hold the dumbbells together with a neutral grip. never really done it but could be an option
