    Hammer Strength Seated Press v.s. Chess Press Machine

    Hello, I was wondering besides the manual weight adjustment of the Hammer Strength Seated Press if there is a difference between the Hammer Strength Seated Press and using a Chest Press Machine? I have both at my gym, but I always use the Chest Press Machine because it's simpler to adjust the weights, does the other one work out your chest more though?

    HS is unilateral. From what I see, those chest press machines require both sides to move at the same time.

    the main difference is that the hammer strength machine pwns the regular chest press machine. you cant cheat and use your dominant arm more on HS and in my experience the movement curve is much better. Hammer Strength FTW!

    I agree with both posts, if your not an experience lifter and use the machine chest press your dominate side will do most of the work
