Default Chest development

Hi, I have been lifting for about 2-1/2 months now. And I feel after my first routine that it is time to switch it up. I usually isolate muscles based on day. Monday I work on chest and triceps.

What my main concern is my chest though. It seems my lower outer chests is becoming much bigger than my inner and upper. And it does not look right. And what I want is to have more square and full looking pecs.

Here is my current routine (Mondays)

Chest
Flat bench press 12, 10, 10, 8
Incline Dumbell Press 15, 12, 10, 8
Incline Dumbell Flyes 12, 10, 8
Cable Crossovers 15, 12

Triceps
etc

Click Here and read the entire thread.

When you come back, my answer will make more sense to you:

Genetics determine shape. Period. Dump the pyramids in weight, and focus on bringing up your squat/bench/deadlift which will provide you with a nice growth response.. Because why? Your body will grow as a WHOLE. If you focus on bringing your bench up from 200 to 300, your chest WILL grow bigger and fill out (within the genetic limits of your potential).

Wow, I've never thought of it that way. Makes a LOT of sense.

0311 is spot on. You cannot go wrong focusing on the core lifts and improving them as much as possible. Focusing on a single bodypart ignores so much potential for growth that it essentially becomes a waste of time. Stick with the big 3 and you cannot go wrong. Good luck.

Deads: 565 (1x1)
A2G Squat: 425 (1x1)

Cardio sucks
