Best exercise for upper inner quadrent of chest

I'm beginning to mack some good gains but the upper inner quadrent of my chest seems to be falling behind.  Any tips on what exercises to do?

Currently doing, Bench, Incline DB press, Incline flys, Close Grip Bench.

Thanks

    oh dear not again. read this:

    http://www.muscletalk.c...pper-chest-m3488110.aspx

    in summary, your chest is one muscle, you can't isolate the 'inner' or 'outer' area of  it, you can't 'shape' it like that, you can only make it bigger. the shape of your chest will be down to genetics and bodyfat

    AS kane said, the shape of your chest is mainly down to genetics and body fat will play a role too.

    Wont be able to target such a specific area really, you can targer the upper fibres more with incline etc however the chest is one muscle so will get the whole chest.

    not a stupid question mate, you learn by asking! Like I said in that post I linked to, its a pretty common misconception. You should have a look around ExRx.net its a great site and you can learn loads about muscle structure and anatomy,etc!
