    Not to do flat bench and decline bench in same day?

    I read an article on that said not to do flat bench and decline bench in same day because they are essentially the same muscle or something?

    Here is the quote- Do not do both flat and decline presses in the same workout. From an anatomical standpoint, there are actually distinct upper and lower chest muscle fibers; there is no such thing, however, as a lower chest. Even if there were, I have yet to see anyone with a good "middle" chest and a poor "lower" chest.

    It is written by Ron Harris, here's the link- I think it's a good article. It has answered many of my questions.
