    However, they may stick to single Dumbells instead of a bar - You should think about that rather than ditching the bench press all together
    This. Instead of ruling out the bench press altogther use dumbbells instead. As someone else mentioned by using dumbbells it means you don't necessarily need to use a spotter, instead just dump the weights down on the floor when you're done, Ronnie Coleman style.

    I always used to just roll it to abs, sit up, stand up holding it, put it on floor, deadlift it and then walk it back onto rack when I failed a rep.

    Then again I never benched 200kg.
    That's what I did the one time I had to. Not too hard.

    If there is no way of focusing on each of the petoral areas... Why are there exercises specially segregated for them?....
    Like what? what exercises are there that only work the upper chest or only the lower chest?

    I always bench press with dumbbells. They're easier to manage, they address left-right imbalances and allow you to move in a more natural range of motion.
