Is Your Chest Lagging Compared To Your Shoulders And Triceps?
I'm 15, 6 feet tall, 152-155 lbs.
I was just wondering if my chest is underdeveloped because it seems that my triceps and deltoids are stronger than my chest.
I close grip bench (hands 2-3 inches apart)140 lbs x 7 max and I did a triceps dip with 90 lbs extra weight. However, I recently maxed with 185 lbs on flat bench.
Hi Francis. Thanks for the question.
I can't really tell you if your chest is underdeveloped because I've never seen a picture.
What your experiencing happens a lot with beginners and intermediates. Your genetics are trying to talk to you.
After about 6 months of this, he gave in and changed his style of training. Our gym owner advised him on a new routine which was as follows:
Bench press using a wide grip
After about a month of this type of training, his chest started to respond.
The point I'm trying to make is that if you want to overcome a weak body part, you need to approach it differently. Why keep on doing the same thing if you want to change something.
Here's what I suggest doing.
Train chest by itself and first in your training cycle;
If you can't live without the bench press, stop doing close grips. Widen your grip and slow down the movement down.
This should help you with your problem.
All the best,
