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

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

    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?

    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

    I love pure encapsulations Methyl Assist. 2 caps 2 x daily is the usual dose (pre training for one)

    Thanks for the quick reply Bryce

    Joe-hate to bug you again. I went out to the Atlantis web site to review the plate loaded chest press. They have two versions. A Lying Converging Bench Press and a Vertical Chest Press. Which one were you referring to? And I tend to have tender shoulders. Would that influence which one I should buy? Thanks

    Bryce- appreciate your quick reply and detailed response. Can you please clarify one item from your response. For the Push, Pull, Lower workout I am doing now, shoulders are included in the Push day. There is one rear delt exercise on the Pull day. So I am confused when to perform the mid and lower trap exercises? Sorry for the confusion.
