    Alright so I've been hit the gym pretty hard and losing weight (20 lbs in the past few weeks). Now I want to work more on definition; so, my question is how do you define those pecs?

    I have changed my diet and have been sleeping for 7 to 8 hours a night while changing up my workout routine. Is there something i'm missing? Or should I keep going with this progress?

    ...I gotta look good while playing on stage! icon_biggrin.gif

    Thanks!

    As far as building your pecs, then the basics apply. Bench presses- flat, incline, and/or decline, Dumbell flys. Pec deck. Cable crossovers.

    While higher reps at lighter weights will help with definition, most definition work is done in the kitchen i.e. diet.

    Sounds like you're on the right track if you've shed 20 lbs. Keep at it!

    Peace.

    Don't forgey to work your back/shoulders as equally. If you work obln the pecs too much, it can make your back rounded. The pecs and shoulders help even each other out, when trained together.

    Great point. It's best to try and train everything equally, otherwise it can lead to muscular/skeletal imbalance. OP, see the "How long is this going to take?" thread.

    If you want to build your chest, I recommend -- along with bench press, the chest machines at the gym, etc -- the "Perfect Pushup," a little low-tech device consisting of 2 cylinders that you rotate as you do a standard push-up.

    They're in most big box stores, and available on-line. They'll build your chest right up.
