im trying to add some muscle to my UPPER chest.
i weigh 142.. my max on the bench is 165.
it seems as though the chest exercises im doing arent working the upper part of my chest..so i'm getting that wide (but flat) look to my pecs.
any advice on exercises?
id say eat, and lift, but def. eat.
what routine you doing?
I definetly have my diet in check. I take eas whey in the morning and cytogainer post workout as well as a healthy and heavy diet.
my chest routines as followed:
3 X 10 - 145 lb bench
3 X 10 - 105 lb incline bench
3 X 5 - 155 lb bench
and 3 X 10 pyramids of 120lbs, 140 lbs, 160lbs on the pec deck/chest fly
Stop incline benching. If you're flat benching, and OH pressing, incline is pointless.
Keep putting more weight on the flat bench, and keep eating. It will come.
I forget where I read it but, I read an article somewhere that said if one set of muscles (your chest) is out of proportion with another set of muscles (your legs) that your body will resist building further muscle on your chest until they even out.
So, if your bench numbers are even with your squat or deadlift, then you need to do some serious work on squat and deadlift.
BTW, what does the rest of your workout look like?
There's no such thing as upper chest. Looks will depend on genetics.
Some good advice guys, thank you.
I'm actually heading out but when I get back and have time later I will post my whole schedule.
As for my training I will continue to balance out my exercises, drop the incline bench and continue to add weight to my normal bench.
I do not, however, understand the comment about squatting!
why are you doing flat bench twice?

Think about it, how many guys do you see with a huge chest and chicken legs or vice versa?
