|Brosceince. EMG activity is similar for either one on the entire chest. There is no "outer chest." Pec major fibers can not be preferentially worked in terms of "inner" and "outer."

|Since the weights aren't connected in db press and bench press has quite a bit of outward force this might mean that you can't utilize your triceps strength as good in db press, making it more of a pec centered exercise. (not saying it hits chest better, just that it hits triceps worse)|
