    Chizlin the Chest


    Just wondering how to get that overall chizled look. I got good mass on the pecs and BF is around 11% so how do u tone the lower pecs to give them that rounder fuller look and how do u get that line of definition in the center? What exercises will really hit those areas?

    For starters, don't use terms such as "chizlin"

    ok:

    1. This has been addressed MANY, MANY times before . You can't exactly have spot muscle growth or spot reduction of fat through exercises/diet. What you can do is hit the muscle from different angles, but it basically amounts to your muscle either a) growing larger, desireable in your case b) staying the same or c) atrophying. Your pecs may grow larger, but you cannot determine how they will grow through exericse, thhat is up to your individual genetics/physiology.

    2. With that said, if you wish to get a more "chizled" chest, you obvisouly need to work on two things: increasing that muscle size, and controlling your diet enough to reduce bodyfat even further. You're apparently at 11% now, which is good, but obviously not good enough to see the look you desire.

    Did you not get a damn word of what I just posted? If you do inclines you hit your chest from a different angle than other chest exercises. This in turn may spur more growth, so the mucle may grow larger, yes. It is NOT necessarily about what exercise you do, rather what exericise provides hypertrophy which, with a proper diet, will cause that muscle to grow. I'm trying to get you to understand the concept here, not just "what exercise should I do"?

    Apparently your routine and/or diet needs tweaking to get where you want to be. There are so many variables it's not as easy as just "yeah dude do more inclines and you'll get a bigger chest". This may prove to be true because of increased volume and hypertrophy, which coupled with a decent diet could yield results, but you need to understand wtf is going on behind-the-scenes with the interplay between your diet and training (not to mention any supplements/anabolics) to be able to fully alter and manipulate each to get the results you want.

    muscle shape is determined by genetics too. If your parents didn't give you the shape of pecs you desire you'll just have to accept the shape you have You can only change size, not shape.
