Anyone got a good lower chest workout? (like below the nipple)
Thanks in advance.
Oh yea. Someone did tell me that. Is that the only good one?
Lower your bodyfat?
I have a pretty badly sprained wrist and even though I wear a guard on it, i stay away from dips and pull-ups for now.
machine dips then
but you'll do decline bench? Doesnt' make a whole lot of sense if I do say.
Benching tends to not hurt it as long as I wear that guard. I know it doesn't make sense.
That does not make sense. You put just as much stress on it doing any other pressing movement.
shoulders are complex joints. flat bench with dumbbells are easy for me, but flat bench with a barbell causes excruciating pain in my shoulders.
for lower chest, do the following exercises
- decline bench
- flat bench with full range of motion
- decline flyes (or upright flyes if you're using cables)
to get more lower chest, grow a bigger chest
I had a hairline fracture in my wrist/hand a year ago and as long as I kept my wrist REALLY straight I could still do bench. Everything else was fairly fine too but I had to avoid barbell curls since it contorted my wrist in a very painful way.
It's possible is all I'm saying.
eh... the muscle recruitment from a decline versus a flat bench isn't very different, IMO. Dips or Machine Dips with a hard forward lean seem to be the best from what I've experienced. Just up the reps and drop the weight if you have wrist problems
my front delts are becoming more and more overdeveloped compared to my chest... when i switch to decline bench and go heavy for reps i actually get the best chest pump. im actually starting to like decline better than flat
I was talking about wrists and so was he.
Cool. Thanks man
Exactly. And my wrist is only sprained, but the guard keeps it straight. But I still away from dips and pull-ups and also barbell curls hurt too.
Better suggestion then?
do what works for you.. try everything.
Werd. I plan to do more declines, I would just like to know why he hates on declines for a lower chest workout. <<edited for below post.
Do we hate on declines guys?
