Hi yall. I just found this forum, this is great lots of information here. I have a strange problem with my chest. I was born with something called pectus, its something to do with a bone in the chest being messed up. To fix it they go in and add a metal bar or small plate, I had this done when I was 3. Where the plate is in is fine, its lower on my chest but my upper chest is strange. Big collar bone for some reason, always had it. Not sure if it is from the surgery I would imagine it must be. I have been working out for about 2 years now, but only seriously keeping a journal and trying to eat right(though I have trouble sticking with that, I know thats not good) for about a year now.
I actually like being skinny, and dont want to get very big, If I could put on 10 or 15 pounds id be happy. My chest though has always bothered me. I have increased my flat bench press a good bit sense I started. My working sets have gone from around 4 to 5 sets at 95 to 105 up to now 3 to 5 sets at 130 to 135 for my heaviest sets. I can see an improvement in my chest, but its mostly the lower and outer. Is there a way I can build up the inner and upper part to catch up to the rest? I would be greatful for any help. Heres some pics.
This one is relaxed, you can clearly see the problem. My chest is small already, but my large collar bone makes it look even worse.
