Question About Bench Press
Hi, im new in there.
Im sorry for my lenguage, i hope you can understand me.
My question is about bench press (flat). I was read several times than
if you down the barbell to diferents parts of the chest you can work
diferent heads of the pectoralis major.
For example in the book of Frederic Delavier, he says than if you down
the barbell to the clavicule you work predominately the clavicular
head of the pectoralis major, if you down the barbell to the center of
the chest you work predominately the sternocostal head and if you down
the barbell to the lowest part of the chest you work the inferior
Is this true?
Can any body refer a EMG articule about that?
I would think that you would change the exercise more by changing the
angle of the bench. If the bench is flat, you work the lower muscles,
if on an incline, you work the upper pecs.
