    Focused flat bench flys to define your "cleavage".
    Peck deck to increase the width of your pecs (shoulder/pec connector muscles).
    Incline dumbbell press. stay in the 6-10 rep range to increase the "depth" of your pecs.

    That video disproved or at least contradicted what I was going to say. Now I don't know what to think. I miss my fly and all the other isolation chest exercises. Why did I not do them much anymore?

    I asked the same question as on the video of a guy in maybe his thirties, maybe late thirties, strong big, bodybuilder chest and body though cut and fit, clearly did it for years. How to get my chest bigger, to grow. The guy I was talking to was discussing how to bulk up the chest, make it bigger. I forget his exact words and terms, but he said to only do the basic, major exercises for the chest. One exercise for each: incline, flat, decline. Do it seriously, with heavy weights, good form, concentrate. Don't over-train. Limit the time 45 minutes or an hour most, and that is it. He said not to waste time on flys and other extras - that flys don't build a bigger chest, they define it.

    He said that after I spent years of doing all exercises I could for my chest on chest day up to two hours. I did what he said and saw improvement. I was over-training. I also concentrated on what he said, and I saw it worked. I'm a hardgainer, and have other reasons why it's hard for me to gain muscle. I still am trying. I probably should mix up my routine, and try to. I might try my fly exercises.

    Individual results will vary. But for me, variety of chest exercises as well as doing chest twice a week helped with growth/development.

    Compound exercises, isolation exercises, stretching.. it's all good.

    Nivek saidI like dumbbell chest routines, some guys like cables, some prefer straight bar, and some like pushups. You really just have to put yourself on a workout and change it up every month and experiment to find out what works best for you. The common wisdom these days is to change things up regularly just to keep the muscles confused -- so they are confused into thinking they need to grow more.


    I've heard this, about muscle confusion. I try to change it up every couple weeks. Do you think increasing weight is enough of a change or should the whole routine change?

    I alternate between cables, dumbbells, barbells and push ups. I really like how I feel after cables, I feel pretty great after a barbell set too.


    Have a repertoire of the following exercises, and choose 5-6 exercises @ 3-4 sets per exercise:

    Press
    Wide press
    Incline press
    Decline press
    Fly
    Incline fly
    Decline fly
    Cable cross
    Dips
    Pullovers
    Pushup wide or narrow grip

    Then alternate your press and fly exercises among cable/barbell/dumbbell as often as you feel. This will hit your pecs from all angles, fill you out and square you off, and get you super pumped.

    Bodybuilding is NOT powerlifting-- it's sculpting, so don't get hung up on always having to increase your weight in the same old routine. You'll waste time and grow stale.

    You need to try what is suggested and watch to see what gives you the best results. Everyone is different so what works for one person may not necessarily work for another but you won't know until you try
