I do 2 sets of 10. I alternate in "pull exercises" with same philosophy: Seated machine row, curls, standing lat straightarm pulldowns.

I use the machines a lot, but would do free if my shoulder felt better.
what is this "machine" thing you speak of
That's those things that you hang your towel on.

The Bench Press with barbell is said to be one of the best exercises to develop strength but not really adviseable for bodybuilding.

In my opinion the dumbell alternative is the best followed by cable chest press
