I'm not standing up for decline but the logic of, "Arnold didn't do them so they aren't worth your time" is pretty weak.SerbMarko said:and if im not mistaken.. was the decline bench even around when Arnold trained? if it was.. i dont think ive ever seen him use it.. and we all know.. he had the best pecs money could buy.

Wolf said:Decline and Flat Press are practically the same. If you do decline right it only ends up being about a 15-20 degree decline which isn't much at all. Going any higher with the degree would probably result in working the triceps and shoulders more.
Pros aren't really the best examples of how to train properly. Once again, I'm not arguing in favor of Declines because I don't do them either, it's just your logic is faulty. Arnold would do five exercises for five sets each, usually pyramiding to his working weight and then would focus more on rep-range and pump than intensity. This isn't exactly optimal training, best chest or not.SerbMarko said:thats why i said its only my opinion.. and i think its a great point.. Arnold by far has one of the best chest's of all time.. how can you argue with that?
