2. Decline Bench Dumbbell Press

Shoulder hurt during flat or incline press? Maybe it is time to try the decline press!

Known in gym folklore to be the go-to exercise to build your lower pecs, the decline bench press is a great exercise to try if the flat or incline presses give you pain or troubles.

Set it up just like a regular flat bench press. Hook your feet into foam rollers on the end and lean back. If you’re coordinated enough, you can do this while you have your weights in your hands. If not you may need to ask someone to hand the weights to you.

If you do not have a special decline bench, You can throw a few 45 pound plates under the end of one of your flat benches. You just won’t have the special feet holders. See below.
