what exercise would one consider to be the overall best chest builder?
Heavy dumbbell presses until you are using a weight heavy enough that most people can’t spot you on it.
How heavy would that be? I started at 75 about 10 weeks ago, and I’m up to 100s now, but sadly my gym stops at 100, though the owner has said he would get up to 120s soon.
I have noticed a much better rate of chest development from DBs over BBs, hopefully I can convince the owner to go past 120s when I get there.
I would hope most guys who have been training for a couple of years can press more than the 100lbs dumbbells for a couple of reps. I would assume there are far fewer using the 140lbs dumbbells and higher.
Honestly, why did you ask the question? 100lbs dumbbells are so heavy that no one can spot you on them correctly?[/quote]
There is no max weight to be spotted. There is a point where they cant grab them both off you at the same time when your done. Thats about 80lbs probably(for me anyway), depending on the plates.
But you’d want a chest before you got to lifing that weight.
