My new gym doesn't have a decline press. Can you guys suggest something I can do to make up for it?
Flat and/or incline BB or DB
low cable fly's/crossovers
Dips with your elbows flared out and your body leaning forward.
worth the time to watch
Substitute for decline bench = not wasting your time with decline bench
I don't do decline bench.
Same here. I like seated dips better. You can really feel it working your inner chest
Thanks guys. I'm gonna have to try those dips. Up until now I've been using them only for triceps, positioning almost perfectly vertical, not leaning forward at all.
Definately leaning forward during dips.
There's a reason you can do a decline with much more weight.....they're almost useless. Stick to low cables or those dips above.
lockouts, or board presses
it's not a powerlifting lift, so it sucks
Dips and low cable flyes would be the best alternatives. Lean forward and flare out elbows while doing dips
I'm pretty sure nobody in this thread said that.
yeah, but that's the thing it's getting at
Decline is a great exercise for isolating the chest and taking the shoulders out of the movement
as far as the thread starter:
as everyone said, weighted dips.
I use decline when i have a decline bench, its great for triceps...
