    Drop the weight on the bar and focus on form. Focus on squeezing the movement with the chest, not just pushing the weight up. Squeeze your chest together at the top of bench press, flies and other chest exercises.

    Also I might say everyone is built differently, some have big arms and small chest, some have big traps small arms ... just keep working hard and youll see some improvements eventually. Be patient young grasshopper

    make sure your shoulders are not coming above the line of your chest when you press. This is the most common problem with chest exercises. Keep the shoulders back and down throughout the entire movement to ensure your isolating the chest.
