    Chest training advice

    Ok so as my bf drops I'm lacking in the chest area. I have separation in the middle and then slightly going underneath but I want to get that sculpted pec all the way around. I'm lacking underneath and around the sides.
    Ghey pics below as examples.
    Do I go more incline work, decline, cables...? What say ye?

    Genetics. You can build more mass to add shape but you can't change the way the pec attaches to the body.

    I would assume dips then your various presses/flys but itís going to come down to BF% percentage in the end.

    This is basically one of the areas Iím working on too. The lower my BF goes the more things sort of naturally head in that direction. I think our other concern would be loose skin thatíll take some time to tighten up.

    edit: Iím assuming you meant the general definition and not a specific shapeí otherwise POBs answer applies.

    well... what you can to is drop the BF, add mass and size. but no re-shape. your insertions are where they are and you can't change it unless u decide to break the tendon and reatach the muscle. LOL

    Okay, POB got up early today but this can not be overstated. My points of origin along my lower chest suck and therefore I don't get that good lower sweep. The old fix was to do declines and dips but this will change almost nothing.

    A good example is the bicep. Long muscle bellies look good when the arm in hanging down but seldom have any peak. All the concentration curls in the world will not make a short tendon bicep peak.

    Just work the mass and let the chip fall where they may. You should, as asked, put up a chest shot for better reference and help.
    Hard work beats talent when talent doesnít work hard.
