if bench dips isolate your triceps more, wouldn't they be better than parallel bar dips since those also call your pecs into play?

this leads me to a question: if you only do incline or decline bench press, will your pecs end up looking abnormal? like half is bulging and half is shrunken?

i think you also have to take in the factor of how tall the person is. most asians in asia ares skinny, but there are some freakishly tall ones too...who aren't obese.

so the more inclined, the more your front shoulders are worked. then what is more worked during the decline? triceps?

is an extreme angle for incline/decline bench good?

the pictures of the incline/decline bench press on exrx.net show pretty deep angles, much greater than the conventional 30 degrees that i have been told. is this extreme angle better for your upper and lower pecs compared the the 30 degrees?

so basically back squats and straight-legged deadlifts put a lot of stress on my back, and front squats and romanian deads don't as much. is this correct? can i substitute the regular deads with ones where i bend my knees while picking up the bar from the ground?

squat and deadlift in single routine?

i have a 2 day split workout, ABX with upper body/lower body. i'm thinking of doing just squats and deads for lower, 1 warmup set with 2 sets of 8-12 reps. would doing squats and deads both on the same day be a bad idea?
