part of it is genetics, but a lot of it is a large amount of hypertrophy in the chest coupled with a low bodyfat percentage.

unless you're genetically gifted in developing that look easily, which I'm guessing you are not because you posted and neither are most people out there, that ()() comes from having a big chest with lower bodyfat percentage

Diamond pushups are a tricep exercise

Default Mine is starting to show!

I just have to contribute (My first post.):

I'm getting the ( )( )! OK, so what did i to to make it show?
Been lifting three times a week for five weeks (started out at a decent condition)..

Chest excercise: Wide-grip bench. Nothing else on the chest. I do some warmup and then 4 series, where i can lift the first one 8 times and the last one about once. Then i do as many as i can with the original weight. I do practically every set to failure.

^^ that will burn you out and get you hurt in no time. If your not pushing insane amounts of wieght, you dont need to go to failure to grow. And even then, you dont even need to.

Triggey's advice definately wont steer you wrong man.

Definitely wouldn't recommend a lot of wide-grip bench.

just curious, why's that? I use it on almost all my bench press-like lifts doing the 5x5. does it lead to shoulder injuries or something?

Well I'm assuming when we say wide-grip we mean much more than shoulder width and we are not just saying it to mean "not close-grip. But basically yes, it puts your shoulders in a very vulnerable position because they are not able to stabilize as well.

Now I know powerlifter do this a lot. But all they care about is lifting as much as possible and you do NOT want to see an x-ray of some of these guys shoulder capsules! In general you want a "neutral" grip around shoulder width and keep you elbows tucked in.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.
