    well mate if your serious about bodybuilding then forget the pec dec
    Get yourself on the dumbbell flyes - best for mass imo

    Knowledge is power...keep educating yourself!

    It is difficult to target and isolate one section of the chest. I dont touch dumbell flyes or the peck deck but instead do heavy benchpressing and dips

    Agreed. The chest and pectoralis muscles are a relatively large area and most, if not all, of this group will be recruited for any kind of chest exercise.For a big chest, flat bench and dips are the way to go.

    Completely agree with the others

    Stick to bench and weighted dips for chest, good reps and high weight.

    IF you need to preexhaust chest or want to do more afterwards, can do flies or pec deck, but no need at all in most cases.

    My chest routine is:

    3x6 bench
    3x6 weighted dips
    3x6 flies (note these are after)

    And in answer to your question, the pec deck hits the chest all over, just not the most effective method of getting it to grow.

    i think cable flyes either standing or lying are a lot better than db flyes and are definatly worth trying.

    I LOOOOVE using a pec-deck. I love the motion of it, and find it a very good excersise.

    But the last time i used one was several years ago now, and can only backup what others on here say. I used a barbell and dumbells now. Its true that you dont 'need' to use one, but there's no harm in using one either.

    In answer to your question though (controvertially) i find the pec-desk does the 'middle' chest. People tend to view the chest as having a 'lower', 'middle' and 'upper' chest, even though strictly speaking there isnt. The chest also works as one, so in theory its also not possible to isolate one 'part' of it. However, myself and many other on here have found that incline bench press works the 'upper' portion of the chest.

    Anatomically / medically, this shouldnt be the case, but is just what some people experience. Everyone's physiology is slightly different, so you may not experience the same thing yourself.
