You can lose fat overall which should help, but as far as I’m aware there isn’t any way to lose fat preferentially from your chest. If you tend to store your fat there for whatever hormonal or genetic reasons, that is likely to be one of the last places you lose it from when you lose fat, but that’s life and it isn’t worth getting upset over it. Adding more muscle overall and particularly on your pecs will probably make it less noticeable.

You bench press powerlifting style, don’t you? You know; back arched, shoulders pinned back and pressed downward, touching the bar under the pecs.

Pressing that way gave me the same results; looked like I had tits because it built the outer and lower pecs more than anything.

Yes i bench press powerlifting style but i think the diet is the big problem that’s why i will do 30 minutes gym biking 3 days a week in the fourth day i’m going to jump rope hope this will burn my chest fat what do you think guys ?

I do not understand how you are addressing a dietary issue with cardio.

I feel like your best method would instead be to improve your diet.

Your chest is not fat. You are dumb.


#14

^Sorry, I really couldn’t resist it.

Ok, here’s the problem. Fat storage at the lower chest and midsection is common among men. Not everyone stores fat evenly throughout the body and this is dependant on genetics and, as was mentioned above, your homornal profile. It may give the illusion of an overdeveloped “lower chest”. But really, your entire chest is just small.

An overdeveloped lower chest has nothing to do with a powerlifting style, or even regular style bench, unless you are not getting sufficent incline work done. What happens for some, however, is your chest ends up developing less proportionately than your triceps and front delts due to dominance in these muscles. This seems to be the problem for you.

You can try doing more dumbbell work and lowering your bodyfat levels.

And please, do keep your shoulder blades back and down when you bench regardless of style.

That was an attempt at tactfully suggesting that your pecs look like tits because they’re thin at the top. If your main goal is bodybuilding, you’re gonna have to learn how to bench like a bodybuilder.

Pinning the shoulders back is good, but forcefully depressing the shoulder blades takes the upper portion out of the lift. Arching the back hard puts you in more of a decline press position, which takes the upper pecs out even more.

Benching on a slight incline with your shoulders pinned back and slightly raised engages the entire pectoralis major.


#19

Other than pressing technique, I also agree with what dt79 posted. It’s mostly just excess fat and hormonal profile. I store most of my fat around the chest and abdominal area, too.

This is accurate.

Just get bigger and stronger. Whatever it is that’s bothering you will likely go away. Your appearance will improve if you build more muscle and eat well.
