    Makes sense to me also jenn, crazy how just losing a little fat reveals the hard muscle that was there all along.
    Sometimes in life you have to stop and think, Is it worth the jail time?

    I for one have crappy chest genetic . I have asymmetric chest, like people mentioned earlier, genetics. Can't control the insertions of your pectorals.

    Ok here are a few pics.

    I said in another thread I was hesitant to post because there's nothing impressive to see, then I realized yes there is.
    If you want full background you can check out my intro post but in a nutshell:

    None of these pics show me at my heaviest when I was approx 360 lbs. 3 years ago. I used to be 230 ish but gained about 130 lbs due to diabetes, hypothyroidism and bad doctor advice.
    Took me awhile to figure out on my own but I did and started to work on getting back 3 years ago. Ive lost 130 lbs WHILE being hypothyroid and having diabetes, so that's no small feat and def. proud of that, while also going from 28 - 30% bf to where im at now. You be the judge on %.
    Im no where near done! This is ongoing for life and maybe in another 6 - 12 months i'll get to 10%. Consistency and perseverance are key.

    In pic 1 that was 7 months ago in january or so and i cant remember but probably 275 ish.
    Pic 2 was approx 6-7 weeks ago and about 260ish. I take terrible pics but you can see the veins in my arm coming out....you cant see the other veins but their there....
    Pic 3 was a week or so ago and 250 lbs, though veins disappeared because my E2 dropped low, I assume.

    Thoughts?
    What should I work on to get the 'sweep'.
    Thx

    That looks like much more then a 25 pound drop. That’s f’in awesome progress. Wish I had your natural size.

    Great work bro. Don't know what you mean by sweep but I'd go hard and heavy on incline presses first thing each chest day. Bring up those upper pecs. I wouldn't bust your ass to get to 10% until you pack on more muscle (if that's your goal). IMO stay where you are now and focus on gaining. I'm around 12% in my AV.

    And set your incline to 30 percent instead of 45 if possible. 45 is far too steep for real chest involvement

    Holy shtt guys, I wasn't expecting that. Thank you!

    Yes POB, that's the last 7 months. I wish I had taken pics from when I started at 360.

    Spongy, thank you man.

    Viduus, that's a 25lb scale drop but it's also been a recomp of sorts.

    Jin, thanks dude!
    I actually have been doing incline benches as my main staple, but I wasn't sure if I was on the right path. Thanks for the confirmation.
    I'm not really doing heavy anymore since I herniated cervical discs 6 months ago I don't want to go down that rabbit hole again.
    Also, this may sound lame but I'm not trying to put on too much size except for bi's and tri's. A little is cool but I'm not trying to be big and bulky I'm going for lean and mean at this point, but I know what you mean so I will work on that.
    So if you're at 12% in your avatar, I'm at ......14%? Not that I'm focused on that number I have a ways to go yet.

    As per my low E thread, felt much better today and plan to get back in the gym in the morning. You guys have just reenergized me!
    Thank you.

    Ps any more advice is welcome, good or bad it's all good.

    Started doing that last chest workout because I was feeling too much in front delts, so I was probably too high.
    Will make sure to keep a shallow incline.
    Thanks.
