I'm new to the forum and hopefully I will be posting more in the future. But for now, I have a pretty simple question I'd like to get some advice on. I've read a few page of posts and apologies if this has been answered elsewhere.
I've been lifting for about 2 years now and have seen serious improvements in my strength and muscle definition. However, the one area I'd like to improve on, but see little appearance results, are my pecs. While all of my other muscle areas have grown dramatically in size, the size of my pecs show little physical improvement. I'm currently ~172lbs and max single-rep flat bench at about 250 and decline single rep at about 275lb, with proper technique. I think that's a respectable amount but I don't see the coorlation in muscle size when looking in the mirror. I see guys at my gym lifting much less but with great pec size and I can't help but wonder what I'm doing wrong. Is this something that's I have to accept as a natural limitation set by genetics or something I can improve on with a more fine tuned routine?
My current pec routines are as followed:
1) Decline benchpress: 8x225, 6x235, 4x245
2) Flat flies: 8x50, 8x55, 6x60
3) Incline dumbell press: 8x65, 6x70, 4x75
I do about 3-4 more exercises for tris and delts and sometimes I throw in a cable cross routine. By the end of the hour, I'm usually very drained and my muscles can't handle one more set of lifting even on easy weights. I've mixed up my routines and rotate my techniques as well.
Please chime and help me figure out what's going on.
