The DF-2 Valor Fitness Decline/Flat Bench was built for the multiple strength equipment user in mind.

When it comes to flat-bench exercises, the bench press is considered king of the chest moves. It's a power lifting exercise and develops the musculature in your chest, shoulders and arms, stabilizes your shoulders and teaches full-body tension. People often emphasize bench presses too often though, notes trainer Charles Poliquin, who advises that at least 50 percent of your pressing exercises should be performed using dumbbells, as these offer a more natural movement pattern. Alternatively, if you don't have access to an adjustable bench, perform one-armed push-ups. These are also classed as a flat movement, but they train your shoulder stabilizers more than bench or dumbbell presses and make you increase muscular tension.
Just as incline exercises hit your upper chest, decline exercises prioritize the lower part. When bench pressing on a decline, the bar should touch lower on your chest, advises corrective exercise specialist and power lifter Mike Robertson. To perform push-ups as a decline move, set a bar in a power rack or Smith machine to waist height and perform push-ups with your hands on it. If you don't have a specialist decline bench for bench presses, dumbbell presses or fly's, use a flat bench with the front end raised slightly on a set of aerobic steps.
