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.
I did that today actually on the Hammer strength machines....Originally Posted by perfect270
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
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.
i think cable flys should have been up there. i love em! and they love me too!
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.
While its not one of my top 3 favorite lifts for chest, decline dumbell can be VERY usefull IMO.
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.
Dumbbell INCLINE is the best in my opinion!
Bench press is the ultimate for growth
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". bwahahahahaOriginally Posted by Biggs
