    Chest Dips Vs Flys

    Ok.. so for chest days, if I already have Bench, and Incline Bench lets say, and wanted a 3rd chest exercise which would be more beneficial,? Weighted Chest Dips, or Flys?

    While dips do hit the chest a bit, especailly leaning forward and weighted, they hit the triceps somewhat more. Go with flies, but that's my experience.

    Yeah, think I'd go with some kind of an arcing movement isolating pecs, like flies, you're already doing pressing movements.

    On the other hand though, love weight dips for triceps... just wasn't the topic specified.

    I do both in my chest/triceps work out.
    I do flys before then I finish off with dips.

    You already have your pressing movements down, your next exercise should be a fly, those are best done after all your presses. Also, add some decline DB presses and different variations of it in there from time to time (BB decline, HS Decline), they are amazing for building chest mass and put less stress on the front delts.

    I think dips outweight flys anytime but switch it up and also look into i believe they're called pullovers. its good to hit the chest from all angles. Maybe bench then pullovers or dips then flies. You hit the fibers that way from all directions really working the full chest!
    Obssession is a word lazy people use to describe dedication.

    If your not nervous before going to the gym your probably not working out hard enough (my new favorite quote)
