    when i hear someone ask this question, the feel good fuzzy responses i see are way too many reps, for way too many sets, for way too many exercises with too little rest.

    so if you want a huge sick chest program, grab a bunch of lifts and do them for 3-4 hours.

    Rest paused doggcrap style is the best ive done. Do flat BB bench with your 10RM and do as many reps as you can do. Rest for 30 seconds and repeat. Then one last 30 second rest and repeat a final time. You will probably get something like 10 reps, then 5 reps and then 2 or 3. Then over stretch the **** out of your pecs.

    Whn I am doing a split I usually start with flat bench, 4 sets at low reps. Then I do a few other movements at 10-12 reps. (somewhat similiar to 5-3-1 with accessory movements I guess). I only go to failure on the flat bench, the other movements I try and stop 1-2 reps short of failure. I also do the same accessory movements in the same order for at least 4-6 weeks before changing, as I like to be able to gauge my progress and its hard to when your doing something different every week.

    Like this:

    Flat bench, 4 sets, 1-5 reps each set going to failure only on last set.
    Dumbell incline, 3 sets 10-12 reps
    Weighted dips, 3 sets 10-12 reps
    A fly movement (cables, pec deck, whatever), 3 sets 10-12 reps.

    My upper chest was always lagging. I made some changes to my workout and have made great gains. Here is the whole thing. This workout stresses upper chest while still hitting the rest of the chest as well. It's using the priority principle, so for each movement I am hitting the upper chest first, i.e. Incline BB before Flat BB, Incline Flyes before flat flyes, etc.

    Incline BB Press (12, 10, 8) Heavy, ramping up in weight each set
    Designed to build mass and power in the upper chest

    Flat BB Press (12, 10, 8) Moderate, ramping up weight in each set
    For mass and power in upper and lower chest

    Incline DB Press (12, 10, 8) Moderate Weight
    Upper chest mass builder - gives better range of motion than BB, lower weight until DB is touch your shoulders, then press up

    Flat DB Press (12, 10, 8) Moderate Weight
    Total chest mass builder - gives better range of motion than BB, lower weight until DB is touch your shoulders, then press up

    Cable Crossovers, pins set low (12, 10, 8) Light Weight, very slow
    Go very slowly - designed to hit those last remaining fibers and to finish off with a solid pump

    Cable Crossovers, pins set high (12, 10, 8) Light Weight, very slow
    Go slowly - designed to hit those last remaining fibers and to finish off with a solid pump

    I usually feel those incline bench setups only in my front delt, they are usually too high of an angle unless i use the adjustable bench. Im a strong believer in just picking one excercise and getting really good at it and rotating the big lift around as you stall out. For a full year all i did for chest was decline bench, then switched to dips only. Chest was perfectly proportioned upper/lower. When you hit the lower chest, the upper chest will still get worked. U cant just hit certain parts of it, it all contracts together. Now i switched to just flat bench and same story.
