  1. @matklstrength I know what your saying and you definitively have a valid point. if i saw someone training without a shirt i would think there a douche, but on the other hand Im pretty sure he worked something out with the manager to let him train when the gym is closed after watching his videos he seems like a decent guy to me 🙂

  2. @Jimboticon Always try to avoid machines when possible. Go for the Bench because it is a 'free' weight, meaning that you are the only thing affecting where the weight moves. Any free weight exercise will work more of your body than a machine will because of any number of supporting muscles used to keep the free weight stable.

    Also with the bench press, you will have a removable bar that you can use for other exercises like squats, curls, push press etc.

  3. First, he is just demonstrating the exercise !
    Second, this exercise is a very good finishing movements !
    Third, shut up DOUCHE !

  4. this is free weights! cause you can put free weight on it..the machines are not free is the ones that you stick the metal key in an out

  5. this is more of a challenge then the flat bed bench press cause you are using single arms instead of both arms at the same time on a bar

  6. I really suck at this machine I will have to spend alot more time on it. I found this out tonight 22lbs in total 11lbs a side 3 sets of 15 reps near killed me it was imbarssasing.

  7. I'm sure it was for you, but don't feel bad! We all start somewhere, and for some, it is heavier. One thing I recommend (though I am no expert) is wait until your flat bench is fairly heavy (at least 90 lbs or higher), then you can do these less important exercises. You will be able to do more that way.

  8. I am age 26 , weight 80 kg …hight 172 cm , five foot seven inch..can i make six pack in 3 monthes… any one have idea plz let me know i am ready to give 2 hour day for exercise and diet… thanks…

  9. Of course he is going to have his shirt off. It allows you to visualize the technique better and shows the effects of his demonstrations on his muscles.

  10. it's a instructional video, about muscles? With shirt off you can see wich muscles are active and wich are not, ITS FOR INSTRUCTIONAL PURPOSES, he would be dumb if he did use a shirt.

  11. One thing that I don't understand is how much weight is on the machine without any plates? I have a general idea of what I can do, but I want to know whether is is 10 pounds, 35 pounds or 45 pounds unloaded, so I know what to put on.

  12. Okay cool, thanks. I used it – it's pretty fun. It might just be me, but I found myself using a lot LESS weight than when I do the Barbell Incline Press (It ended up being 40 pounds, which is over half what I Barbell Incline Press). Is that normal?

  13. props to him for actually wanna workout without a shirt in a public gym! you know how dirty public gyms are? this guy has balls usin the machine without a shirt.

  14. 12lbs in 3 weeks? That's 4lbs per week. What steroids do you use? The maximum "natural" gain is 0.5lbs per week . You're gaining 8x more, thus, steroids. ..l..

  15. I tried this incline chest press today… it didn't feel like a machine that would give me good results. The bench press and cables = have to be the only two good ones.

  16. Hey there, have you heard about "Musclegend" (look on Google)? There you will find a nice free video featuring the right way to develop noteworthy muscle quickly. This made it easier for Devan to break through his bodybuilding stagnation and build chiseled muscle with no fat very fast. I hope it helps you too…

  17. I have this machine in my gym but it just says chest press? does this mean its like the flat bench? both handles go up like this one. Just says MTS chest press

  18. Great instructional video. When you push out fully if you flex your chest will cause results faster "faster as in over a shorter period of time for the inpatient people". Thumbs up on this though =D

  19. i hate to be the only one to say it but the placement of your head and or whole upper body was off to your right majorly .. u want symetry when lifting and showing people that the position of your head and or upperbody if of neglect of importance makes your video lacking at best.

  20. If you want to get ripped, you should do a Google search "Smashing Ripped X". That might help you get the body you deserve.

  21. Hi, have you considered "Musclegends" (just search Google)? There you will find a useful free video showing how to build notable lean muscle fast. This made it easier for Brandon to break through his bodybuilding plateau and build up chiseled muscle mass with no fat very quickly. It might work for you too…

  22. They laughed when I told them I was going to bulk up with "MAD Ripped Muscle", but then I showed them the results. Do a search on Google for MAD Ripped Muscle to see their reaction.

  23. Yea, I really don't care what the person in the video looks like. I'm just looking for as vast a pool of advice and resources as I can acquire. Perhaps some people come here for the people, not the advice. To each their own I guess.

  24. It would be a shame if you did not bulk up when these people do it easily with MAD Muscle Ripper (go google it).

  25. Perhaps he is trying to show his form, and show his back isn't pushing the weight and all the contraction is in his upper chest. You know?

  26. This guy's cool and has great advice on how to use the machines properly you won't get the benefit if you don't use them properly.

    He's got his shirt off so he can show us how the machines work the specific muscle groups.

    Rock on man good stuff! time to hit the gym baby!

  27. Hey there, have you heard of "Musclegend" (just search Google)? On their website you can watch a nice free video showing the best way to develop noticeable lean muscle very fast whilst burning body fat simultaneously.

  28. Hey scott would you say the hammer strength machines are better for building muscle than regular bench press/incline bench?

  29. Hi, have you tried "MuscLeader" (search on Google)?

  30. You are a weirdo for working out without a shirt on u creep! Secondly, "nipple height" made me uncomfortable as well. You're a weirdo

  31. Yo yo… Good vid.

    My dad was formerly an overweight fella. He transformed himself from 293lbs of fat into 209lbs of natural muscle. I could not believe it! I just joined personally because I wanna beef up. He made use of the Muscle Building Bible (Google it)…

  32. Hi there, have you heard about MUSCLEADER (look on Google)?

Kev and hundreds of guys with the same goal experienced amazing success making use of this approach. It may help you as well…

  33. They have this machine at my gym and it is usually in use. Will I get same results doing dumbbell chest press at that same incline?

  34. Tried to use this machine last night. It seemed to work my Tris and shoulders out more than my chest. Hence me looking at a how-to video. Not sure about your guys weight issues. I ended up loading this with about the same amount of weight as I would a flat bench.

  35. Im 15 I've been using the incline chest press machine im just wondering will this make me short or make me grow slower or not at all ?

  36. You should place the seat lower to focus on your upper chest. The way you do it is not wrong, but it doesn't target the upper portion of your chest completely. It's more like flat bench (even though you explained nicely the elbow positioning). So try to put the seat lower so that your hand are level with your shoulders and take a wide grip so you don't feel it as much in your triceps.

  37. PS: this machine could be an excellent exercise for upper chest as long as you are doing the right way. If you do it the wrong way you will lift more but you will mimic another exercise

  38. subscribe. i was subscribed
    Great video, I do not know where I was at body fat percentage wise 5 months ago ….? but I know that 5 months ago, 6 months soon, I was at 269 pounds. Following a keto lifestyle, for the last 6 months, I am now at 214 pounds. I did a simple fat percentage scan and my results were 26% fat (54 pounds of fat) with 160 pounds of lean mass. I am still a little fat, but I am happy that I was last year. I also workout 5 days a week, 3 days of heavy weights and 2 days of cardio (stairmaster: HIIT). This video is a great reference, I do not mind, myself, being at 15% body fat.

  39. Excellent set of weights!>>> I start with these for motivation, then I get on my BOWFLEX M3 MAX TRAINER! I can do cardio and strength in the same workout! I do a set of reps for three different muscles, then after I do a set for each of those muscles, I FEEL ENERGIZED TO HOP ON MY ELLIPTICAL (the M3) FOR 20 MINUTES, then I get off and do 2 more sets for those three different muscle groups, and I'm done!! Excellent equipment, just gotta keep doing it at least 5 times a week!

  40. "Breath In Breath Out"….Really? Mr. Gym Basics 101 lol If anyone inproprely uses a Hammer Strenth Incline they are a complete moron and don't belong in a gym in the first. Thankyou I think I lost an I.Q point watching this video.

  41. How much would you say the arms way unweighted? I’ve had three months off the gym With depression and I was doing 75 kg incline barbell press I’ve gone to a new gym and they have this machine and just having 10 kg each side felt heavy and the arms and self seem to carry a bit of weight. I know my arms were working independently rather than barbell press question together but still 10 kg either side felt like The equivalent on incline barbell press off 50kg On this machine
