and none of them have Decline bench press incorporated into them. Are they worthless to do?
i woudln't say worthless, they're good if you wanna change things up a little. awhile ago my bench wasn't increasing at all so i stopped flat benching for like 12 weeks and only did floor press, close grip bench, and decline benching and my bench went up from like 300 - 330
To be perfectly honest, I don't see much use for them. I'd only ever do them once in a while to switch things up if things get stagnant. Only other good use I'd see is if you're a powerlifter with a big arch, a good decline would translate into a bigger bench.
I do it as light accessory work at the end of my chest day.
I believe most people use weighted dips instead of decline.
They can be interchanged...
i love decline db bench
dips are a lot tougher on the anterior capsule of the shoulder
Most people do them to 45 degrees though so they dont feel it at all.
dips make my elbows/shoulders crackle & pop like a bowl of rice crispies
