Chest wont grow!! Help!!

As an alternative to lifting heavy on the bench press (barbell) try implementing time under tension tenchniques (with moderate weight) to encourage growth.
Do 8 reps in each set (4). Do a 4 second negative on every rep and 1 second up (40 seconds per set). Also, you are only allowed a 40 second break betweens sets
To make this exersise harder, on the negative, squeese your hands together like you are trying to do a fly (without moving your hands). This will create more tension. I guarantee you will feel this the next day.
You can do the same thing on dumbells. Instead of squeezing inwards you go outwards. For example most people do a db press where at the top of the movement the DB is directly above their shoulder joint-which takes most of the tension and weight-you could technicly hold this position for a long time. So instead move the dumbells outwards 1-2 inches to form a W shape with your arms. This should be the new finishing point! This is much harder and removes a lot of tension from your shoulder joint and puts it in your chest. In addition it keeps the tension in your chest for the whole exersise. Combined with a 4010 tempo this will also make you really sore.
Expect the weight your currently pushing to initally drop while doing this. i dropped nearly 1/3 when i first did it but was twice as sore. If you are bulking, on last set of each exersise, do a quadrouple drop set for 4-5 reps. This is hell. Get ready for growth.
I hope that made sense.

Haha always one of these guys that leak over from other forums. I went up in db and bb bench since my bench form is re-evaluated for future reference. Either way kdeome your 5'10 and 157 is NOTHING to be bragging up brah, your pathetic. Also I've only been training 8 months going from 142-171 at less then 7-8% bf TODAY. If you have any REAL training under your belt then you've wasted you time because if thats all you've gain then you have serious issues with your own routine or diet you need to wrk on, before you go about trying to smash on me for a weight I was at, many chest days ago.Originally Posted by kdeome

Yes I love doing long negatives. It has helped me so much on my chest too. I'll do 1 second poss and 2-3 second negative and a longer negative on the last rep. Really gives you a huge burn and tear

It's not how much weight you move, it's how you move it.
