Weak point training - Pectoralis Major, aka “Pecs”.
It’s the main chest muscle and it’s a body part that I’ve always struggled with.. I see a lot of people at the gym thinking they’re training chest when they’re actually training their shoulders..
Now bare in mind that what works for me might not work for you! However, I would definitely advice you to focus more on form rather than weight and try to do a lot of single arm exercises; like cables and dumbbells instead of bench press.. Now I’m not saying don’t do bench press, but for me it doesn’t work very well.. Good for strength, bad for gains!
I’ll try to post a video or a couple of photos from my next chest workout…
Now I’m not saying I have great pecs, or even good ones. But I have made gains, and it started happening when I focused more on form, squeezing instead of “pushing” and always make sure to keep your shoulder blades together so your front delts don’t take over!
If you’re a long time follower I think you’ll remember that I started with pretty much no pecs, even though I was doing a lot of heavy bench pressing. I was pretty strong, but for me it didn’t build any muscle whatsoever..
Anyways, just my thoughts on the subject.. And seeing as you follow me, I guess you’re interested in hearing what I think ;)
Have a great night everyone, and happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian followers!
