    The wierd thing is that for shoulders, I experience quite the opposite. My friggin' delts work great with damn BTN presses not DB presses at all.

    I might end up just doing something like this:

    Decline BB Presses 2 sets
    Dips 2 sets
    Flat Flyes 1 set
    Cable Crossovers 1 set

    See what happens with that. I guarantee that I would get MUCH better pec stimulation from a routine like this than I would flat BB presses and inclines.

    my 2 bits

    Just thought I would throw in my personal experience...

    A couple of people have mentioned joint pain or injury from widegrip flat benches done with full motion to chest. I have also had a severe recurring pain in my shoulder.. and it hurts the worst on flat bench. Lately I have switched to declines and found them to be much less stressful on my shoulder. Also, when I perform flat bench and stop a few inches before the bar gets to my chest it helps a lot too (as mentioned in other posts).

    My 2 cents.
    Saint Stephen will remain, all he lost he shall regain.

    Seems most pec/delt injuries come from flat BB presses more than anything else. Just a personal observation. Declines + flat DB presses = great chest workout.
