stickly mass for chest ...
ok my current chest routine looks something like this;
flat dumbell press
my question is if im trying to increase upper body mass and also chest thickness should substitute flat dumbell press for flat bench?

I think you should stick with dumbells on flat bench and every once in a while switch to bb just to shock your muscles.
Your upper body is going to take more than db or bb flat bench to make it grow.
I guess to answer your question more directly flat bench bb or db is not going to add mass. Doing inlcline bb will add mass and do it first so you can do maximal weight on every set. This is what will add mass for me you can try it or not try it its up to you bro.

I do almost the exact same thing except add incline db presses, 3 sets, and I have been growing quite good lately but as mentioned above you also have to be eating good. Also on my bb exercises I like to do 3 workout sets then one heavy set to finish it off I feel like this has helped a lot recently. Good luck to you hope this helps.

im actually thinking about taking out incline flyes and adding in hammer strength incline press, my reasoning for this is becasue the overload potential for this exercise un like flyes becasue it is basically a one joint exercise when the hammer strength is a compound movement, also after the first 2 freeweight exercises are completed, all my stabilizers are toast and ever my chest, so i beleive that a machine liket he hammer strength incline will help push my chest to it's limits without my stabilizers failing before chest! what are your thoughts about this???

But I do get your reasoning behind it it would help isolate the chest more. I love those machines sometimes I'll do drop sets with hammer stength incline, decline, regular. It burns so bad and makes me ****ing sore as all hell for a few days.

I didnt mean not do them at all. I just ment do incline first if you want your chest to get bigger.
Sorry I read you question wrong earlier. To really answer your question db will add more thickness on flat bench. I've lost my mind you will have to bear with me untill I find it.LOL

well it is every workout, i was just wondering that if i were to switch to flat bb, if it would give that extra little edge to help put a litttle more mass on!
