    So I want the perfect body and I'm never satisfied with my own...I want awesome definition soooo I was wondering if you guys knew which excercises work which parts of the chest? I'm more interested in defining the middle of the chest to make the vertical ripped line between the pecs show up more. All I've been doing are pushups, benchpress, and flies. What am I missing? :(

    I'm no expert on exercise, but I have done enough research to tell you that you'll want to look at your diet closely. I think most of the experts on here will tell you that there is no way to work the inner chest because the chest consists of an upper muscle group, and a lower. The is no inner chest group since the fibers run horizontal.. you can't work and make one end of the fiber bigger. The shape and way your chest is connected to your sternum is genetic, and can only be changed in volume through exercise.

    I'm a fellow digital media artist and INFJ, BTW :)

    Comments like this from guys like you is what makes some of us want to kick you in the head! icon_wink.gif

    That said, yes, you can bulk up but there are certain physiological barriers you may just not be able to overcome. Just keep that in mind.

    I'm not sure what point gigaram was trying to make...Its a fair question that many guys have...I get asked the question about chest exercises...ALL THE TIME...what I do for my chest....I wish I had a dollar for every time....but here is my routine and thoughts on the subject....

    1) We all have different muscularity....one persons pec muscles are not going to look the same as someone elses necessarily....we are all built different....its genetics...

    2) I was told early on...the most important exercise for chest development is NOT the flat bench press...its the Incline Chest Press (preferably using dumbells).

    3) My routine is as follows....
    a) I warm up with flat bench 3 sets of slightly increasing weight to warm up the muscle group, but easy weight. This is purely a warm up. Grip shoulder width.

    b) This is where I hit it hard....I do 4 sets of incline (45 degree) dumbell presses with the most weight I can control for 12 reps. Slow up and back....feel the burn in that upper pec muscle.

    c) 4 Sets of 10 machine flyes (Pec Deck) Slow movement...to really shock the inner pec muscle...I love to feel that burn in the middle when im in the rep.

    d) Go back to bench press and use a light weight (45 lbs on each side of the bar) but use a close grip this time and do 3 sets of 10. I use a Smith machine because I work out alone with no spotter.

    e) If Im feeling good and have the time...Ill throw in 3 sets of 12 reps of incline dumbell flyes with a relatively light weight I can control and maintain proper form with, using a slow movement. This is a shaping exercise so slow movement through the rep is key!!!


    Thats it....I hope it works for you as it does for me.

    Good Luck.
