So for the past 3 weeks I've switched my chest training around and I start with pec dec flyes, then cable flyes where I change the height of the handle every few sets. I follow these with incline DB presses, and hammer strength dips. I do this because the flyes are easy on my shoulders and elbows and also I can pre-exhaust my chest. So I have some questions...
1) Doing flyes I can feel my chest working better than doing any other exercise. I do the reps slow and I squeeze forcefully at the end of the motion, sometimes holding the handles together for a second or two. What do you guys think about doing flyes as the main movement for chest?
2) Any suggestions on elbow friendly exercises I could follow my flyes with? We have a few hammer strength chest machines, but they place a lot of stress on the joints it seems.
3) If any of you have unconventional chest training methods that you feel effective, please share.
