    My opinion (although I can't critique as well as most.)

    Chest development looks good all around.

    Think u need to focus on upper chest...inclines.

    Try hitting all different inclunes. Low incline and regular inclines.

    Maybe someone else can chime in.

    Thank u for the response bio and sfla80, I will put in some more work with flies and incline dumbbells.

    I hope that will start to kinda pull my pecs into each other more and give me that look I'm going for. How about any other body parts? Any thing else stick out to u that looks weird or need more work (of course there is always more but anything that stands out or lacking)?

    My back is different now then it is in that picture to. I have been hitting it hard thanks to some ppl pictures on this forum (gave me motivation to have a wide back)

    I will post a new back picture later and leg pictures. Just don't have any one my phone.

    When you do those flies keep those arms pretty straight. Once your going heavy enough you will have to band them just a little. Focus on going deep and at the top of the contraction squeeze as hard as you can twisting the wrist in towards each other but don't let the db's touch keep them about one inch apart at the top or peek contraction. Hold for a second or two and repeat each rep

    Definitely going to try it on chest day. I might not be focusing enough on flies. That's pretty much the last thing I do on just day. Going to move them up to the beginning of workout. That way I will more focused on the flexing and contracting of the chest.

    Train in chest every 4 days, my chest is lacking and since hitting every 4 days after a couple of months its getting in proportion with the rest of my upper body. nach told me to hit it every 4/5 days

    --
    Hit cables, flys, dips, press ups, bench press everything you can think of

    I train it different every 4 days, i will do like bench press and press ups then the next time flys and cables

    Its all there tho buddy just needs thickened!

    Tax man what's up!

    Thanks for your insight. 2 times a week! I don't now. I feel like I would hurt myself doing that haha.

    Any other parts of my body u guys can point out that needs work? Or is my chest the main thing holding me back on my goals?

    Can anyone give me a bf estimate off of the first picture that I originally started with? That's a more recent picture and I'm kinda wondering.

    You would need someone to take pics of you doing different poses from a bit of a distance to critique the rest of your body

    Also, it would be better to get full torso shot for a bodyfat estimate but id go 16-17% from what i can see

    I couldn't do 2x a wk(not a chance)... Which is why I suggested to Tax e5d that way it's not 2x a wk...

    Definitely hit inclines(I don't get even hit flat bench anymore) you build your upper chest w/flys... Flys(are the building block imho) & then Presses and cables is all I use(pec dec every once in a while - great exercise just pause for 3-5sec at the top/peak of your contractions...

    Pre-exhaust is something you'll have to try yourself - flys S/S'd into presses are fvking brutal(in a sick sadistic way) 25-30min on that is all you need... IF your intensity is up to par

    Tax man and bio thanks for the info on my bf and all the other advice. I have been on a clean bulk for about 6 months. Before that I was on a dirty bulk(only about a month of that though).

    If I'm around 17, 18 that's not to bad. I will probably cut down to around 12 and then start bulking again.(to keep a decent figure).

    Whats your height and weight 73rr

    I personaly have always been feared of going down to 9-10% bodyfat without the beef there, i dont want to look like a swimmer or sprinter, im happy to keep building muscle until i really feel big, then get down to 10%

    I do agree by being very lean you can look bigger, but if your pretty light then strip to that you can look skinny imo

    Whats your stats?

    Everyones choices and goals are different but if you drop 7% bodyfat now i think you will look thin due to your height. Id Get down to 14-15% and grow muscle tissue if i were you

    Im 5ft8 202lbs 14% and still dont feel bulked enough to go down to 9/10%

    Another option is getting down to 10% and then bulk, thats if you can deal with a period of looking like a marathon runner.

    Bio has low bf but has the muscle mass there to wear it thats why he looks great. He is also in great proportion in terms of chest, shoulders, arms, torso.

    Us at that bodyfat now? Hmmm i dont know about you but id feel pretty thin and incomplete (chest not thick enough atm etc).

    I want to gain another 14lbs of muscle before going to that bodyfat, need to build more steel first

    Haha, marathon runner is the worst fear of my life! If I looked like that again I would lose it!

    What I'm going to do is work more on my upper chest. Using flies at the beginning of my work out and adding a little more incline lifts.

    As far as bf%. I will be dropping down to maintenance and doing a little carb cycle until the mirror tells me to stop cutting. What ever bf%I turn out to be is fine by me.

    After this short cut I will go back into a clean bulk and aim for getting up to about 220 lbs or until I'm around the same bf% that I am righi now.

    ^^^ that's one of the best questions I have ever been asked haha.

    To answer that question I have never really felt like a sheep at any point in my life. I feel like I'm a over achieve and refuses to be just like everyone else. I'm better aND will do what ever it takes to do what I have to do in life to be successful! I have this same mind set in everything in my life. Work, gym, diet, my relationship, EVERYTHING.

    I try not to be a dick to others though. It's not right to put ppl down for no reason!
