The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    chest question

    i was looking for some advise for building the inner part and upper part of the chest. i have noticed pretty good results on my lower and outer parts of my chest but the middle still seems small. i didn't know if there are certain chest excersises that focus more on the center and upper parts. thanks for the help......

    I've heard estrogen therapy can help with that.

    You can not 'target' the inner or upper portion of your chest. They'll grow along with the rest of it.

    If you want a big chest, you need to have a big everything, and you need to work on getting a big press, either db or barbell, whatever.

    Unless you are 220+ pounds at under 10% bf, I doubt you have any inner or upper anything you need to worry about.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Paul you can develop the inner chest it depends on the movement, sure the outter will grow too.

    point is you can grow the outter chest without growing the inner, if you dont have a good enough range of movement.

    use dumbells instead of the bench press and focus on the range of movement

    Lucian,
