    You'd be better with a standard bench than a multigym. Free weights are better for strength and size than machines.

    Sell the multigynm and buy some more weights

    still have the bench and over 100kg of free weights just thought the multigym might have been good to help get a lil extra pump on the workouts tbh but not really going to plan i might just hit the heavy sets on the free weights then add a short set or lighter sets on the gym just to get that extra bit from my workout

    Oh right. That could work but you should be able to do that on free weights too.

    Once you've done your benching you can always do some fltes with dumbells to isolate the pecs. This will be better than the dec. If you do want to use the dec, you'll have to concentrate on squeezing the pecs as you pull the weight in.

    If it's not working then your programme or diet or both ae probably out.  I'd guess you're probably spending too much time benching etc and not enough time on you back and legs, especially the big compounds. Unless you're training the big muscle groups hard, you might as well forget the chest.

    Disregard multigym bollocks, acquire weights.

    Disregard chasing 'the pump', acquire linear progression on the big compound movements week on week.

    What is your routine?
