    Hi guys,

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to work the lower pecs without using a ‘decline bench’? (sorry its late.. and i cant be assed looking for the right name of it) my new gym doesnt have one!

    I know if you flat bench enough weight, you’re bound to recruit all the fibres but i just feel i could do good with some isolation in that area.

    Any ideas?

    The best exercise I find for lower chest is wide grip dips, keep your chin on your chest and your legs out in front, just 1 or 2 sets to keep your lower chest firm. Your lower chest should be getting enough stimulation from flat bench though 😉

    The lower chest isn’t actually the pec minor, it’s just the lower portion of the pec major. But anyway as mentioned dips are a great choice.

    Heres some wisdom about all over pec development from Milos Sarcev the 20 year bodybuilder and Olympian winner.
    Also other videos in the series are worthwhile viewing at
    The Milos Sarcev Shoulders vid is good also. DA[/url]
