Twice a week Chest workout??
My Chest is my worst bodypart should i start working out twice a week or is it true what they say about over working your body parts

u could, but if doing it twice a week, u gotta stay low on sets on each workout, id say about 4-6, that way u can work it and not be too sore for ur next chest workout....i have same problem with my chest and after 6 years have still yet to find something that really works, just try different things and keep track of ur results to figure what technique works best

i'd say it wouldnt hurt to experiment a little, but definitely keep the sets down per workout

your split probly has nothing to do with it, I would say genetics have the biggest part of your lacking chest. You really shouldn't need to hit chest twice a week, but if you must, wait 72 hrs between each w/o. Just make sure you tax your chest with max overload on the day you hit it. Heavy and strict bro.

You can work bodyparts twice in the same 24 - 36 hours to help growth. Let's say you work out in the morning. Go to the gym, do your normal, work to failure type of routine, then that night work your chest by doing high reps and low weight. This could just be pushups really. The second set isn't to break your muscle down again, but rather to inrease bloodflow and therefore nutrient delivery, which will in turn help recovery and muscle growth.

i agree with hulkster...your problem probably is just like mine. genetics...without knowing much about you, chances are you have very good delts, which overpower your chest...in that case when u do chest clock your delts back and concentrate on only lifting your weight with your chest. stop short of lock out...and just like ironreload said if your volume lowers then the frequency could go higher...try extreme stretching after your done with your chest workout
