You will get some pec stimulation with any form of heavy pressing. It will pull more of the emphasis on triceps, but your pecs will still feel it.

It's an exercise that doesn't fit into the bodypart paradigm very well. If used on a bodypart split I would personally use it as a tricep exercise - like close grips.
