Chest Question

Hi guys,

I know most muscle shape and development is down to individual genetics, but are there any exercises that i can do that will encourage my pecs to meet in the middle and at the bottom?

My current chest routine is:

4x8 dumbell press

4x8 incline flys

4x8 overhead pulldowns?

4x12 dips

Cheers for any help.

    There was a thread on here recently (possibly a poll?) which divided posters in to those who think you can target a specific chest area and those who think you cant. The general theory is that decline presses and dips focus on the lower chest fibres, inclines on the upper fibres, flat on the middle fibres and flyes on the inner fibres. But then just as many disagree and say that flat bench presses are all that is needed. Each to their own, I personally believe you can focus on certain parts of the chest.

    Hmmm, cheers mate, seems there is just no substitute for hard graft and a variety of exercises.

    a combination of incline, decline and a normal bench press works good for me, starting to see results. Just mainly my upper pecs need major work. As i'm looking retardadly out of proportion now..
