the lower part of my pecs is lacking compared to the rest of my chest and I cant stand it. Lately I have been trying to do more decline and added push ups as a burn out to my work on chest day.

I was thinking I'd do push ups a few times a week in the morning or evening as well to try to boost grow in my lower pecs.

I dont want to hinder my chest work outs though. So how often is not to often? (if that makes sense)

any recommendation for other gym rats in here.

How often do you do weighted dips?

They will do more to help you grow your chest than push ups will, and they are easier to integrate into a routine.

they get tough on your elbows though...at least it did for me.
i was doing a good amt of weight..me plus at least 3 plates on the belt.

been a while since ive done that and no issues but it was definitely hard on them(elbows). great exercise though.

To squeeze stuff in when I was failing to get my ass to the gym, I just did increasing sets of 10 pushups 10 bw squats right before I took a shower. Perfect time to do it as far as minimally invasive into your schedule goes.

Yeah, it can, definitely. I found that for me, leaning forward more helped out a lot, but it doesn't completely solve the problem. Your mileage may vary.

^i agree. Its just the nature/kinematics of the exercise.

upping my oils seemed to help a bit...placebo or otherwise.

i also need help in this area. It may be gyno (which I hope it isnt, as surgery is only option). My upper, middle and side pecs are hard and look ok, but the fat surrounding the nipple and behind it puff out. I've done a shit ton of dips and a variety of chest exercises and my diet is decent. Its a pain in the ass and i'd love to get rid of the breast "tips" lol

That has to do with fat loss, not muscle development.

i got down to about 168lbs, im 6ft, at one point with a six pack and not much body fat, and still had them. I may have to get that surgery which I'm dreading.

As had already been said, I'll still bet that fat loss is key here. Hard for us to say for sure though unless you post up a pic. Maybe you are one of the very rare people who can be really low bodyfat and still have tits.

I know in my case I store fat first and lose it last in my love handles and chest area. I have to be below %10 bodyfat before I have lost the fat in my chest. Above that I dont have a chest I have breasts ;\)

I do 200 per day at work everyday.

10 sets of 20. Takes only a few seconds each time...I do it between calls and meetings.

People think its weird but fuck them. I've seen it make a huge difference in my strength and aesthetically in my physique

I just ordered a perfect push up knock off for $13 and spent for the nice ab carver pro for my "home gym". (which also includes a foam roller, and stretching strap lmao). I just want to work on my core and do some push ups at home to supplement the 4 days a week I already spend in the gym, and the 3 days a week I also play volleyball.

Curious to see how it works! I really want to work on my core pretty badly, the ab roller is gonna fuck my shit up.
