    I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for a novice. I have a pretty significant concave chest (born that way) and was wondering whether there is any way to build up my chest so that it looks a little more normal (see the photo in my profile).

    I have a concave chest courtesy of my dads side of the family... i actually think it can make your chest look bigger once you build it up. Either way, I've never felt disadvantaged by it.

    you guys are crazy! your chests look good to me. But I suppose there are any number of chest exercises. I think there are some articles here for it. Other than that, maybe go deep and heavy?

    ActiveandFit has the right idea, and you guys both look good to me. When you both decide to go 'deep and heavy' on your concave chests, I'll help. :-P Thanks.

    I started doing inclined bench press. It seems harder especially if you push up from your chest and don't let gravity pull the bar back some. I had to drop my weight a little just to do a few sets of 10 when I normally do 100-110 5 sets of 10 regular bench press. Don't need to work shoulders already do that, shoulder press and military press behind my head.

    It's been nearly 8 years; I wonder if the OP's chest is CONVEX now...

    Lol, I was looking for the topic where someone talked about there chest and just revived an old thread. I meant the thread about building the middle of your chest. I searched for that and there was several on that topic as well.
