one which is tailored to any genetic gifts and weaknesses and injuries you may have

for me, chest building is fairly easy, so i dont have to use the barbells at all unless i want to - not because i need to or have to to get a big chest.
with good form, im able to do pretty well on most exersizes and havnt had a real injury yet

dips, dumbbell flyes, and dumbbell presses is what i do.

One that will work up your strength to benching 315 for 12 reps.

Basic work. Flat and incline barbell/dumbbells press..and the do dumbbellflyes with less stretch, go for contraction on the top.

Thats what I do with my chest, and its growing hard

Thank you. I don't understand the rationale behind, "hey guys, let's do flyes and four types of presses today to build chest!"

For sure, the more and more you read, the more you realize how key intensity is for triggering hypertrophy through the myoblast formation from satellite cells. Bottom line, look at any of the bigger guys here on Mecca (Braaq, SiCK, Line, Turk, Flex, Fahad) they're all putting up some big weight with good forum on lifts.

I agree with this,it is an oldschool but brutally effective,just start with the upper pec though and do dumbbell flyes and contract it with every rep,you don't need heavy dumbbells here man,just light and strict is the key in flyes IMHO.

I think that dude meant was ->start with incline first and then bench and then flyes afterwards..or add cable crossover to it.

Flyes to build the chest? :dunnodude:
Thats what you use dumbbell/barbell press for.
Flyes work the inner part of the chest and is more a finishing move. A stretch move even

Like others said on here, stick to the basics and try to go heavy. Dont go so heavy that you cannot have good form or you can barely get four reps without a spotter. Move up in weight when you feel ready. There is no special workout that builds more mass/strength than others, if there was everyone would be doing the same routine. Change it up ever week by varying your exercises. Stick with Barbell flat and incline presses, the same for DB presses, and if your going to do flys then stick with DB flys. I dont think the pec deck or cable flys have any significant value for building mass, flys period are not great for mass or strength.
Good luck.

Do bench,dumbell press...inlcine work for complete thckness of chest...and benching 315 for 12 reps will surely give a u big and strong chest...and if even after benching 315x12 u have a flat chest with no def.with a low bf%....give up!!
