Thread: Upper and lower chest Thickness

Upper and lower chest Thickness
My chest routine is as follows
Incline bench 4 sets
Bench 4 sets
Dips 4 sets
incline flies 4 sets
I have always had a flat chest and wide shoulders. I broke my collar bone about 15 years ago and when i bench i have to really focus on keeping my left shoulder planted on the bench, it has a tendency to roll forward.
I would like to build my upper chest thickness and width.
I have been doing dips for lower chest, is there something better that i can be doing instead of dips, because the problem i'm running into now is this. I'm using my body weight plus 35-50lbs and i cant keep my left shoulder back, it rolls forward and it hurts. When i'm doing dips for chest i keep my chest out and lean forward and try to keep my elbows out, is this the correct technique?
Thanks for any help!

DB Bench Presses
Incline DB Flyes
You technique is good on the dips. At least, from how you explained it.

to be honest i think thats a bit much for your chest ,well for me any way... i would do:-
Barbell flat bench (5 sets)
Dips (30 reps--usually dived in to 4 sets)
Flat DB flys ( 4 sets)
and occasionaly i will finish with cable crossovers high and low...
As far as your shoulder goes i wouldnt risk it on dips as it keeps rolling forward..you were right to lean forward with chest out as this hits the lower chest better..
i would substitue dips for decline db or barbell bench and go for a nice pump with plenty of drop sets....

I love doing drop sets on dips, the pump is amazing and you get a really high intensity workout
