    Size doesn't have to do with strength. It's normal to rep your bodyweight. I'm not being a dick. You just don't have a lot of muscle. Put more muscle on to be more definitive.

    It lacks "shape" because it's not there.

    Hey man dont trip on it time in the gym will give it more shape. TBH that is just about what my chest looked like when I started hitting the gym as you lean out you will start to see separation between the pecks, as you build up your upper chest you will see the size and shape fill in it takes time but you will get there if you are dedicated. Just do your self a favor and dont forget about your legs

    Yep. Lack of muscle is all I see. Possibly some "baby fat" around the bottom but if you get it to grow then I'm sure it will shape up. If anything the UPPER chest needs to come up. Lower would look much better if the upper section of the chest wad larger.

    Keep killing those workouts and it will come along bud.

    I see no issues with your chest. Keep eating and lifting. At your age you have a lot of growing ahead, don't sweat it.

    Believe it or not what will make your chest grow most is squats. First time someone told me that I thought they were nuts. That was long before I had to buy my shirts off the xl rack though....

    So was I. We all hear about "lightbulb" syndrome, where guys build their upper body but neglect their legs. There is some truth to it, but the fact is, it's a lot easier to put muscle on all over your whole body than it is to build up one particular muscle. So if you want bigger arms, do more squats, and pulls. If you want bigger chesticles, do more squats, and presses. Basically, if you want more muscle on your body, start with squats.

    Thats not a problem man. To tell you the truth your chest seems like its on its way to developing well. Atleast you arent those guys who have a chest of a skinny **** and the arms of a god. Thats a very comical look.

    You're doing fine man. I would say work on your incline bench and finish your chest off with a high rep incline machine to really stress the upper pecs. Keep lifting and dont forget leg day

    Possibly add incline and decline dumbell presses to your routine if you don't have them there already
