    The same way that deadlifts will develop your biceps. When you work the body systematically with heavy weight, everything grows.

    No, I thought it was about how to develop the chest more - not isolate it.

    The front delts are very minimized with a decline press. In fact, the decline is commonly used by benchers whose front delts are so strong that they feel like the flat bench is taking away from their...

    How does a decline improve your flat bench? It removes a lot of the major muscles in the shoulder which are necessary to produce a strong flat bench, and on top of that you move the weight a shorter...

    I don't feel anything either, but over the years my calves have grown at exactly the same rate as my quads and hamstrings and I stopped doing any type of calf raises a long time ago.

    Based on my experience, squats (front and back) will get your calves as large as they are going to get. I don't believe that seated or standing calf raises will yield additional growth. It may help,...

    What are some of the records held by members of the metal militia? What was the total lift, who did it, and did they use a bench shirt?

    With the decline you are positioned at an angle that allows you to shorten the distance that you move the load. So while you do more weight, you aren't moving it as far. It's kind of like a half...

    Ditch the declines. That is an ego lift and nothing more. Use the flat bench and weighted dips to build the chest. Inclines are decent, but they bear in mind that they involve the shoulders more than...

    I take a heavy dumbbell and put it on my chest. I crunch away on an incline or on the floor. I find heavy side bends to be pretty taxing as well. I usually do 3 sets with a 15-12-10 rep scheme.

    I suggest sticking to the routine as it has been laid out. Rippetoe knows what he is talking about. Benching 2x per week for 10 sets isn't too much volume for anyone.

    It sounds like we have some different goals, which is fine. I only do Pendlay Rows because they are dynamic which builds power and explosiveness. Hypertrophy is a distant secondary consideration when...
