Press or flyes ?
When you working your chest.. what do you like the most? Press exercises or Flyes ? From what do you get best resultst..
I like the press most because it gives me a much better pump and a "better workout" ???
What do you bro's think about presses and flyes ?

I love the press but I'm a shoulder presser so I have to really work on form to get a good pump............however on fly's I cab really feel the contraction at the top. For me Fly's are my favs.

I like both. Flyes are "killing" my chest. So I'm doing press first and flyes next

I get a different feel from each exercise. Maybe b/c I am a "shoulder presser" (who said that the other day in a post?), I work more of the outside of my pecs, while flies I feel more on the inside of my pecs. If I had to choose, I would say I get a better overall pump from flies, and would rather to those than presses alone.

I like flyes better. Presses involve other muscles more than flyes do. I get better isolation from flyes.

I do both............. You need to train your chest from all angles to completely develop it IMO. DB and straightbar presses give me thickness and flyes help me with width and shape the muscle.

Gotta agree w/ Mud - i do both, every workout, though i base my workout around presses, and finish off w/ flys (either incline or flat DB or pec-dec machine)

I'm with Mud on this, I also do both each time I hit chest.

I also do both presses and flys every workout.

You guys ever do presses and flys on an exercise ball? I throw them in now and then for a change of pase. Really have to hold it together (stabializer muscles) when doing these.

I sometimes pre-exhaust my chest with flyes then do all my pressing............. great pump from it.

Like a huge medcine ball? No never done that, mostly incline/flat presses/flys and sometimes throw in some decline presses and dips. On a rare occation i might do 2-3 sets in the cablecross just to get more intensity and insane pump.

I agree with Mud..."you actually need to do a little of both."
But don't forget to mix it up with incline and decline thought so you can get a good mix, confuse your chest muscles and also get a full developed look to the chest. also IMO

Oh yea...presses on the swiss ball are killer. The hardest thing, once you've stabilized yourself is to hold your ass up so that you're back stays flat like a table...a few sets of those and i'm dead...i try to toss them in every once in a while...although it's been a couple months...i may have to toss them in this week

Well, It looks like flyes are more popular then presses....
Fly on bro's !!

At the moment i do, incline bb press, then flat db press followed be fly's. i cant do flat bb heavy enough to get benefit because of an injury so i have to experiment and work around it.
A combination of both is what you need as they work you differently

Well I do both..........I have done flyes before presses in a super set and I have used flyes at the end of my workout to get a good stretch........I must mix things up very often to keep my muscles from getting use to the same workout....if I go with heavy weight low reps then I like presses better.......if I want a great stretch and to really squeeeze the muscle at the top, then I like flyes...........IMO one can't have total chest developement without using both.
