Yea, I've seen this "study" you just linked @Wannabe it makes me question Scivation a little.. Explains why Lobliner is no longer there imo! lol.

He also says you should eat candy immediately after a workout... so.....

Lobliner isn't completely against the idea of targeting the upper pecs.

This is my whole argument with "science". There will always be conflicting arguments between "doctors", so which one do you credit the most? Stoppani has a tremendous resume and its hard to bet against him, but there are tons of others who have qualifications that are equally impressive. That's why I take everything with a grain of salt and don't put all my faith and belief into one person's theories.

As far as this issue is concerned, you have two choices.

You can beat yourself up if your "upper chest" doesn't seem to be responding even though you're doing all sorts of incline movements.

Or, you can just focus on making your chest grow.

Either way, you're still (most likely) going to be doing incline movements, but in one situation you still have peace of mind.

I still don't understand why this is a topic that is just beyond beating a dead horse...

If you "feel" that inclines hit your "Upper Chest" and are convinced beyond a reasonable doubt of this... Then do them, and even if you don't "feel" it more.... still do inclines... why not? Its all chest stimulation, no matter how you want to approach it.

There is enough physical and mental battles you go through every day you step into the gym and look into the mirror... So if performing this exercise eliminates one of those battles


Knock yourself out...
