    I can't believe decline benches are not mentioned, they really blow up the chest, really gets the lower chest thicker, where most people lack size, but most gyms don't have a decline bench. I voted the bench press because it's very much fun, and a good mass builder for the chest, but decline benches are awesome too

    I miss the old days when bodybuilders had huge chests, the days of Arnold, Franco and Lou Ferrigno

    Smith incline press has been my #1 for a long time, but I am also a huge proponent of flyes of all types/angles.

    ^Thanks for understanding man, my friend loves the smith machine, but I just feel more comfortable with free weights, the smith machine gives me the creeps, I don't know why, I guess it feels to me like an injury weighting to happen, but that's just me , besides, I always prefer free weights over machines
    (the groove feels weird and unnatural to me)

    Hey bro, I totally understand what you are saying...some people do not like that fixed groove, while others like myself feel that it helps isolate the target muscle. However, that said, I have done my fair share of free weight benches, inclines, dips and I still do plenty of flyes and pullovers. I guess that as I have gotten older and my physique is becoming more refined I like the feeling of machines better sometimes than free weights - although I will NEVER give up many of the basic, compound movements that gave me my size in the first place.

    I know we are all supposed ot say how much we love free weights best and I still make free weights the focus of my training, but the incline Hammer Press machine has done and still does wonders for me.
