Poll: Best excercise for overall chest mass?

Best Overall Chest Development Excercise

Page 4 of 7 First ... 23456 ... Last

  1. i hear ya bro,if not carefull the 1st time you do these you will end up with a dumbbell in your face.excellent for stablizer work.

  2. meh, i benched for yrs, and never really got a huge chest. I did gain a lot of strength though.
    But, when i started doing bench cable cross overs, and flat dumbell press/inclined dumbell presses, my chest just started kinda growing over a period...really impressive.
    I'd rather those than barbell benches any day of the week...

    MaNiaK flyes....about to hit the hay so I might come on here tomorrow to explain but I explain in detail in my pic section and on NP.com in the exercise forum!

    i like doing them towards the end. incline > flat/decline > dips > flys

  6. I really like Weighted Dips, leaning forward to isolate more on the chest. It also will help you get your max up on the bench press. Just my 2c

  7. i think it all works you should just change your routine every 2 months

  8. Ha boy this is an old thread. Kinda funny the first two posters are both banned from anabolicminds LOL

  9. This thread autobumps all the damn time...WTF?

  10. its b/c people keep voting

  11. I voted for the Incline Barbell but was wondering why flys were not included in the poll. Flys are awsome for the chest. I may have had a harder choice if that was included in the poll.

  13. I love weighted dips and any DB press

  14. Agreed Weighted dips
    Sleep Supplement 3Z BCAA: Red Raspberry and Lemon flavors
    HGH/sleep enhancer: HGHpro
    Test Booster: TestoPRO and STOKED!
    Preworkout: MANIAC Fruit Punch and Pink Lemonade

  15. weighted dips leaning forward keeping elbows out to isolate pecs and incline db presses w/ bench slightly inclined at various angles....add some cable crossovers at end of routine and modified flyes for a nice pec stretch..voila.


  16. I like Heavy dumbell flat press. If you keep your range of motion narrow on one set and slightly wider on another set you can pound your chest.

    I did that today actually on the Hammer strength machines....

    incline Db
    wide chest hammer strength
    and flat bench hammer strength
    followed by decline
    and weighted dips w/ 2 45s...

    Chest is still pumped, I feel like I got a good workout in

  18. In the book beyond brawn the author says that Dips are superior to the flat bb bench. I also read that Dorian Yates used incline dumbells as a staple chest exercise because he said it uses the bulk of the pec muscle.

  19. I like the Hammer Strength iso-lateral incline bench a lot. You use bi-lateral power to push actual weight plates. Even better, your hands almost toch at the top, so you get an awesome contraction. I love Hammer Strength for almost anything.

  20. i think cable flys should have been up there. i love em! and they love me too!

  21. Lately chest day is

    2 set Incline BB 6-8 rep
    2 set Incline DB 8-10 rep
    2 set Dip 10-12 rep
    2 set flat fly 10-12 rep

    8 sets of fiber ripping love.

  22. While its not one of my top 3 favorite lifts for chest, decline dumbell can be VERY usefull IMO.

  23. That's a very good link..Most of the knock on BB Bench is the lack of contraction, but the technique Milos uses the contraction is definitely there as well as the maximum range of the stretch..BB Bench

  24. In the old days pre 1970's dip were called the upper body squat by many trainees. Arthur Jones used to have his trainees do it.

  25. Dumbbell INCLINE is the best in my opinion!

  26. Bench press is the ultimate for growth

    (I'd probably ex the poll and just ask for people's suggestions)
    hehehe. don't u just wish you could teach them a lesson.... if they say there's 2 of 'em and just one of you, just show them your guns and say "actually more like 3 of me and 2 of you". bwahahahaha
