I’ve always done barbell exersizes for chest with my elbows tucked in. This wasn’t on purpose, it just felt natural to do. Anyways I’m getting stronger and stronger on flat and incline press, but my chest is still a weak point.
I recently read that what I’m doing now (elbows tucked in) is good for strength training, but doesn’t hit the pecs as much as it hits the shoulders and triceps (I can’t say I feel my pecs working when doing barbell exersizes for chest this way).
Would flaring my elbows out (so that my arms are in a straight line) help to pack on more mass? Is this how most bodybuilders do the flat and incline bench presses? Thanks.
