Default

A decline press has a shortened stroke, and because of this tends to incorporate more triceps and less chest. It's almost like using a 2-3 board press or a lockout.

In a split context I feel there are better movements you can use to hit the chest. In a fullbody context there are far too many staple lifts above declines in the marching order.

I use chest dips, aka the upper body squat.
