I'm doing max ot and every body part is coming along nicely and strength is quickly going up. Chest however, while it is getting stronger at a good rate, is not growing. Everything else is growing except my chest. Help!
What does that mean?Originally Posted by Rodja
Im not sure I just focus on doing as much weight as I can for 4-6 reps. I just don't understand why my chest isn't growing and everything else is.Originally Posted by Rodja

I wouldnt change anything. Your strength is going up and the rest of your body is growing. Eventually your chest will groW just keep getting better every workout. I'm not a fan of max ot, low reps ,low volume and low frequency. Not exactly good for optimal growth
The reason most people can't grow there chest is due to improper technique. I see it all the time at the gym. Guys lifting to much weight, with bad form. The most common mistake is locking out your elbows. I rarely push the bar past 10 inches from the top of my chest. Usually keep it around 8 and pump my reps 8-12 through this rom. Also a lot of guys don't know is by learning to squeeze your shoulder blades together and keeping them squeezed threw the entire rom puts maximum weight on your pecs and takes most of your shoulders out of the pressing movement. This takes patience to learn though. You have to start with a much lighter weight and work up to it. Remember it's not so much how much weight you can bench but how many fibers you can activate and stretch during the excersise. Squeeze your shoulder blades together then lie back on the bench. Try to keep them squeezed during the entire set. DON'T try to go heavy.
So more volume and iso
Not necessarily more volume but finding your mind to muscle connection. Chest is a tricky muscle to stimulate.Originally Posted by Danimozz
