    A while back you recommended Atlantis as a very good chest machine. You suggested I compare the lying versus seated. The seated fits me better. Following that line of thinking, would Atlantis still be your first pick? And last, what would be your second brand/model choice. I am just looking for options to compare. Thanks

    Bryce, really appreciate the fast response and details. Bare w me as I carry the dialog further. Money is not an issue. I want to get the right piece. So if you had to rank them, would it be Prime first and Atlantis second? I have two Prime pieces now (seated back row and leg extension) and love the variability for changing the load curve. Hate to put you on the spot.
    Second question – now that we are talking Prime. Any recommendations on optimizing the load using the three weight positions on each machine? On both machines, I put most of the weight on the #3 position (beginning range). I may put 15% of the total working weight on the #1 (middle range). I have just been playing w it. But what do you recommend so that I get the absolute best out of each machine?
    Sorry for being long winded and thanks again for the professional advice

    Good information Bryce. Very helpful. In regards to the Prime seated row which would be a pulling versus pressing pattern and the leg extension which is a totally different move in itself, how would you best utilize the Prime weight pegs?

    And is this the same Nautilus chest press you were referencing?

    Excellent advice Joe and Bryce. As usual, thanks for all the support. And I totally forgot about the strength profile tutorials. Great reminder.
