    Chest wont grow
    on: 2019-01-14 08:48:44
    ive been training for about 8 months and gained about 20lb of muscle, with all my muscle groups growing pretty quickly except for my chest. I bench 245, which i think is decent for being 17 y/o, 165lbs amd 10%bf. I always get a good pump when training chest but the muscle doesnt seem to grow... or at least not as fast as other muscles. I hit it twice a week, just like everything else. not sure what to do. any advice ? thanks man

    If you train chest an extra time, you could be over training the muscle. Maybe chest needs more rest than other body parts. Also, you can try pre-fatiguing the muscle. Like pet deck for 5 sets of a hard 10-12 to failure. Do this before you start doing your compound lifts. Also you could be using more of another body part to assist and not even know it. Have you found that your shoulders have responded well? This is super common. In that case, bring your elbows in closer not flaring super wide and focus on the contraction of each set for pecs
