I have had an injured rotator cuff for a while now. I find inclines to be a lot more harsh on my shoulder than flat bench. Would declines put more stress on the rotator cuff than inclines or less? What are some chest excercises that are easy on my shoulder?
Probably less with declines, but not necessarily. If they are better, learn to bench with a powerlifter's arch.
light cuban presses will help develop your rotator cuff, make it stronger. i would be more worried about fixing that then bench press.
Apparently if you do them with proper form they shouldnt hurt your shoulders, but I never liked the decline. My shoulders dont like them.
"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." - John Calvin Coolidge

declines are a really akward movement, its not uncommon you dont like them.
yeah i have many excercises that i do to help strengthen my rotator cuff. I guess pretty much every chest excercises uses shoulders.
