    Do a little reading and you'll see a lot of your questions have been answered already on here in a lot of detail. For chest you basically have 2 types of exercises: presses and flyes. Presses are your bread and butter chest exercise. Flyes are seen as more of an isolation movement for detail and definition but I'm absolutely convinced they can build decent mass too. (There are also cable crossovers and pullover exercises which you can add to your chest workout for some variety and detail work.)

    Bottom line: do both. I typically do presses first and flyes toward the end of my workout.

    For overall mass I do Incline Bench and swap that monthly with incline DB Presses. I use Incline DB flies as a shaping tool for the most part. I never really gained mass from flies. But I do love them as a polish on my chest routine. I love going back, spread into a full stretch then powering threw it with 65s.

    Can be a good pre-exhasuting method though Dominik to start with maybe 3 sets of flyes, worked wonders for my chest shape, still do them last aswell yeah if required.

    Heavier pullovers are more of a compound exercise, depending on how you execute them, they will directly target the pectorals and/or upper back, your triceps will most probably act as a stabilizer as will your abs. This is the freeweight motion mind you.

    I try to get them into every 2nd workout and I think they're an effective exercise but they're in a category all of their own like you explained which is why I singled them out, along with crossovers.

    Interesting approach and it makes sense. I might try that next chest workout. It's just hard to resist that temptation to go heavy right off the bat with presses

    Supersetting flyes with presses would also be worth trying. There are quite a few superset combinations worth trying on chest day and you've got me thinking.
