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...---The internet is the father of the electronic lynch-mob---

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
