Some people say the flat bench press works your lower chest more than your upper, but I've gone up in weight at the gym a lot and I don't see my upper chest lagging behind. Are people wrong about this?

Answer: Theres alot of controversy around this topic. I have found that the upper chest (through my experience and research I have seen) is activated during regular bench pressing AND overhead pressing. The only difference is a slight advantage of the DEGREE of stimulus focusing on the upper chest. As a nonenhanced lifter it will not make as much hypertrophic progress to focus solely on inclined pressing (doesnt make a huge difference).

I personally use dumbbell inclined pressing, but just for the sake of killing boredom than actually caring too much about my upper chest (and with calisthenics I do ALOT of pushups and dips so i like to vary it up with a different angle for fun).

I sometimes do dumbbell flat, inclined, and military press in a push session just to not be bored (i mostly do calisthenic, but if I do weights its various dumbbell work).

I saw similar results with and without inclined pressing AS LONG AS I AM CONSISTENT with whatever press movement I use.

At the end of the day its about what keeps you motivated to train consistantly.

There could be any of several different reasons, but mine do that when I'm low on potassium. Having a banana an hour or so before bed should help, or just take a potassium supplement when it starts. For me, the little potassium tablet works within 10 to 20 minutes.
