    Chest workout


    Taking a look at my chest workout I was wondering if I'm doing enough sets and how many u all do. I usually do around 15 sets give or take 2.

    I'm now looking to get my upper chest brought up. It seems to never grow at all. This is my current chest workout

    Db incline press 4x 8-10. Drop set last set
    Smith incline press ( 1 higher incline then db) 4x8-10
    Seated chest press machine 4x 8-10
    Incline flys 3x 10-15

    Yes I am getting stronger. I usually get all my meals in

    I switched my routine usually every month. Every month I pick different exercises and new muscles and angles I didn't hit previously

    Muscle confusion is a myth. You don't need to change your routine every month. Periodize your volume and intensity appropriately and you'll gain mass.

    Try adding dips to your routine. A local guy who used to do NPC shows told me that one, and how your entire pectoral muscle is needed to perform them. It worked like a charm for me, AND my triceps added mass and strength as well.
