This is a very good exercise for chest muscles. It's good for muscle shaping and giving you the much-coveted muscle separation. Thus, it's not the exercise of choice for those that want to build slabs of muscle onto their chests. If you want to focus on building mass, you should do barbell or dumbbell exercises.

Another important thing worth mentioning about this exercise is that it will also strengthen your core (abdominal) muscles as well. Standing up straight in a semi-rigid position while executing this exercise will engage your core muscles. Thus, your core will be getting a good workout as well.
