Hey guys, I’ve been a long time lurker of T-Nation and I’ve finally decided to join because I can’t seem to find the answers to my biggest problem.
I’ve been hitting the gym for over 3 years. I am 5’10, 180 lb, 23 years old, and overall, I am very well structured. However, I have one glaring weakness and it is my lagging chest. Every portion of my body has developed very nicely. I follow a 2500 - 3500 calories per day, with lots of protein and all the good stuff.
I have tried all sorts of programs, from working out with only heavy weights to triple drop sets to 15 rep sets, etc. etc. 2 months ago, I have decided to give Christian Thibaudeau’s HSS Chest Specialization Program a shot. I have gained an inch on my chest but overall, it is still lagging far behind everything…
I follow a very strict and proper form to ensure that my chest gets a good workout. I retract my shoulder blades, force my pecs to do all the work and after every workout, my chest gets swollen and red, thus, confirming to me that I had a good workout. I even change my program once every 2 months. However, after 6 months, my chest will still be the same, which is very frustrating.
Any tips or feedbacks will be greatly appreciated.
