    How does OT feel about these? Waste of time for gaining mass?

    I've done them a few times and really like that I can get a good squeeze when I bring my arms together, but I don't know how effective it really is...

    Incline flies FTW, amirite?

    I tried them because my new gym doesn't have a fly machine. I couldn't feel them at all in my chest

    i heard they were better for shorter people while people with longer arms are better off doing the wider grip fly machines. That being said you should probably focus more on flat/incline/cg presses and dips and not worry so much about which flies you are doing.
