Outer Pec shaping/

Hey Guys,

I am new to the board but not new to the bodybuilding game.

I was hoping some of you could help me out with your knowlege and experience.

No mateer what excercises I do, how slow I do the rep and how far a stretch, I can never seem to get my outer pec to grow. (Running from my arm pit down to my lower pec)

Any ideas on how to grw/shape this?

    Just get bigger, you cant shape a muscle....and unless you're 250 lbs, you should just be worrying about putting on size....and if you are 250 lbs you won't be worried about it!

    You can't target one area of a muscle. You need make the whole muscle grow.

    Eat well and use good compound exercises and you'll get there in the end.

    Thanks for the help guys but my pec as a whole is growing but over time, the outer part seems to be lagging more and more.

    It's probably due to your genetic predisposition for the shape of the muscle, especially if your chest is growing. Out of interest what is your current chest routine?

    Try doing wide grip dips,
    keep elbows wide and high,back rounded chin on chest and feet out in
    front of face so you are in a half moon shape,lower right down to get a
    full stretch(this will hurt at first)and push up to just short of lock
    out making sure the elbows are always kept out to the side 3 sets 10
    reps should do the trick at first.

    I had the opposite problem with the inner part of the pecs lagging, they caught up though.

    I have been training for about 5 years (only more seriously for last 3) but i have always noticed that my left pectorial is bigger than the right. Im doing tony starks 3 day 5x5 routine but it doesn't look like its going to catch up and ever look symetrical. Has any 1 got any idea's on how to solve my problem or am i being too vain?

    ive always thought that a wider grip, even on things like bench press would help the outer muscle. am i rite or jus way off the mark?!!
    i used to spend ages doing loads of wide grip press ups and that seemed to help. and hands almost together for inside of chest? (never actually tried those tho!)

    could marko do an extra set of one arm press on his smaller arm? would that help or be classed as over training?
    It maight be beneficial to have someone look at your benching technique. I had the same and it wasnt until i had someone look at how i benched that i realised that i was using my back to help me lift my weeker side- meaning that pec wasnt getting hit the same. So i had to drop down the weight and work on technique again to bring my weaker side up to the others standards.
    could this work?[?]

    Thanks for that ad, on friday i worked chest and whilst benching i tried not to push with my legs at all. I thought about doing some extra 1 arm pushes but didn't think they would do much. There is a perfessional body builder at my gym, il ask him what he thinks because symetry is important in his game.
