    Pec Exercises


    Alright when I am working the chest area I am doing the following routine:

    Standard Bench Press 3 sets, 8 reps
    Incline Bench Press 3 sets, 8 reps
    Incline (high incline) Bench Press 3 sets, 8 reps
    Chest Flys 3 sets, 8 reps
    Ball Push Ups Ups 3x15

    I am trying to get bigger pecs (like most guys out there) and more defined pecs.

    I need some ideas on better Pectoral based exercises that can be done with a standard bench press. My bench doesn't decline (anymore long story haha).

    Any one have any ideas for exercises that will work the middle and lower areas of chest? I am doing a lot with my upper pecs.

    Best,
    Chad

    for the mid chest, I like to do DB presses, where you squeeze the two dbs together as tightly as you can throughout the movement. I usually feel it in my chest more on the way down then the way up, so its good to do it slowly, and really focus in squeezing them together.
