Training chest

Whats the best most effective ways to build up your chest muscles?

I do on chest day (this is a once a week thing at the mo):

Flat bench press
Decline and flat dumbell press
Incline and flat flyers
Incline dumbell press (as opposed to incline barbell because my bench doesnt do it )

My chest is coming along slowly but im finally getting somewhere and some shape to me now but because my bench doesnt do incline barbell whats the best alternative?

Same with other parts of the body. whats the most effictive workouts that give the best results (biceps, shoulders, back, stomach, legs?

Many thanks

Dai

    Theres no 'one size fits all', people will respond differently to different exercises, training etc...

    I do the following for Chest, and works well for me.

    4x6 Incline DB Press (30 degree incline)
    3x8 Chest Dips

    I find the most effective way for me overall, is to stick with compounds and focus on progressing, which includes; Deads, BB Rows, DB OH Press, Front Squats, SLDL...
