I need to utilze decline bench presses to improve the lower pec but my gym doesnt have anything. What exercises can i do to work the same muscle.
Dips with a forward lean
Or put a couple of plates underneath the bench to make it a decline bench.
learn to arch when benching and keep your elbows tucked. and like said above, dips.
you can call me "ozzie" for short.
O yeaaaa. I love weighted dipsDips with a forward lean
Just bench and dip. Im pretty sure the whole muscle contracts at once, even inclines hit the whole chest to some degree.
Yep, leaning dips and forward leaning cable crossovers.

Flat bench and dips work the same muscles, lol. All the decline bench does differently from the flat bench is shrink the range of motion, and the declined angle allows you to leverage the bar with your lats more. That's really it.
I have done several cable exercises... messes with my shoulder but I plan on taking it easy. The lower pec between arm and nipple is my main area needing tightening...almost need to pull up or maybe needs to be filled out i dunno. mini moobs suck!
Well it has been since April i started working out and with in the last couple of months really hitting it hard... I think I need to but some real muscle behind it and then maybe try cutting away some body fat.... I have alot of work to do to the mid section as well. I am trying to figure out some new exercises that work smaller/less targeted areas.
Did you get any responses, other than mine, over at bb.com? I haven't checked back yet.

yes ... only Raigs.. the underhand cable fly. He even gave a small diagram...which I would post on here but I haven't figured/tried that yet
hands on the box. make sure your palms are at, or below the lower part of your chest.
Ok sounds great... thank you
If you're up to it, Gironda dips really destroy the lower chest. Try a few and see how your shoulders react, but if they don't bother your shoulders they might make a nice addition. Curve your spine, chin on chest, hands facing out and feet in front of your shoulders. They really brought up my lower pec development.
