New to this message board, haven't really ventured off the powerlifting page much.
A little background about me, I am what I would consider a powerlifter, in the sense that i have been much more concerned with the strength of the muscles as opposed to their appearance, not to say that bodybuilders only care about the way they look.
Basically I have average strength when it comes to my chest (best bench is just north of 300 pounds) but i have no size or definition in my chest to show for it. Id like to gain some size and shape to my chest but i think i may be more arm and lat dominant when it comes to my pressing. Is there any secrets or modifications i can make to my pressing to increase size in my chest?
a normal chest workout for me is
DB Flat Bench
3x6 working sets, increasing weight with each set (if i get 6 on the last set i increase the 3 weights by 10 pounds for the next workout)
Declined Bar Press
3x8 at around 200 pounds, have been as low as 190 and as high as 230 when i was on a roll
Inclined DB Fly
3x12 at 25 pounds (I try to make this more of a stretch than a lift to increase strength
Cable Cross Over
I do this for the pump towards the end of the workout, early in the set i am focused more on form and as the set progresses i let form lax in order to squeeze out more reps.
Finish with 2 sets of dips to failure.
Im taking all comments and criticism.
