    So I am stating to workout and the results so far are good, but one part that is not growing is my upper chest. I work it just as much as I do the lower and middle of my chest, but I don't see any results, and it is so much weaker. So does anyone have any helpful tips icon_question.gif

    Do incline bench presses and dumbell presses. Do the incline work first before doing flat or decline. Make sure the bench is inclined to around 45 deg, not more, as you'll be hitting the front delts more otherwise.

    Amen! Inclines first thing at less than a 45-degree angle and you'll grow a nice set of knockers icon_wink.gif

    flex89 knows. issacd knows.

    Incline dumbbell presses, decline dumbbell presses, incline dumbbell flies, decline dumbbell flies, cable crossovers in good form, through a full range of motion (touch your chest with the dumbbell), 8 to 25 reps, 6 to 10 sets, at a 45 degree angle, or less, once every 6 days.

    Calories. You can't make gains if you don't have fuel, recovery, and stimulation.

    Don't forget to work your posterior deltoids to keep balance.

    Don't forget to work your back to keep balance.

    Don't forget to work your legs so you don't look funny.

    Be sure to work your shoulders and arms.

    Do not do flat bench with a bar. Do not do shoulder press on the anterior side. (It will cause you to end up with shoulder impingement.)

    Any good muscle board will have these exercises listed.

    Here's a search you can run here on "Real Jock":

    I'm kinda surprised. In that pic with you and the gorgeous shepherd, you look like you have very nice pecs.
