The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Seated bench press

    I've been using the seated bench press (or is it a nautilus seated bench?) I'm not sure of the name. You put the plates on the sides and push out. Can someone tell me the correct name for this machine?

    Also, if anyone's every used this machine, what do you think of it? Pros/cons?

    Thanks.

    In my gym its called the chest press. I prefer the plain old bench press or dumbell press though because it means I don't get all wobbly when I go back to free weights. (Stabilizers and stuff :P)
    Probably ok to use both but its not really neccesary.

    I like doing heavy presses on it. That way you can do heavy press without a spotter and reduce the risk of injury. Although I don't use it as a primary chest excercise.

    Right now I'm using it as my primary chest exercise because I'm not a big fan of the regular bench press. I'm just trying different things out. Any suggestions as to an alternative to the flat and incline bench press as a primary?

    I'm also doing the incline dumbbell presses.

    Hammer Strength is a brand name, with specific machines . . .

    I would just call it "Seated Chest Press Machine" if it's not an actually HS equipment...
