    body change

    I am on my second cycle. I have noticed a big change my chest looks like it has quite growing but my delts and wings have really shot out so I am starting to think that it's not that my chest has quite growing it's that I am growing wider so my chest doesn't look as big. Anyone got an answer or know what I am saying

    traps, delts, lats .. those are the first muscle groups to start really taking off once you start AAS . your chest will take more time to catch up

    Muscles with higher fast twitch fiber content tend to respond faster. But it really depends on your individual genetic makeup. As GH said above there are certain muscle groups that respond better. For most people the problem areas are calves and chest.

    You could also just be shoulder dominant during chest work.

    Try some isolation movements prior to your compounds. Pre-fatigue your chest a bit.

    Try keeping your elbows tucked to your sides and run decline bench as your first exercise at five gradual drop sets with no more than 8 reps per set. Helped me immensely.

    Practice your form on warmup and try to shift the isolation to your chest. It takes practice and discipline throughout the movement. Learning to put strain on isolated muscle groups is an art in itself.

    I generally bench press like a power lifter, lots of lats, traps, upper back, triceps, leg drive, and then chest. BUT when I want to bench press and isolate my chest I do guillitine presses (look that up) 10 sets of 10 and your chest will be fried.

    like Kelkel said. - I also like to do flys or another isolation movement prior to a compound movement to help pre-exhaust the chest and help get that mind muscle connection with the isolation and then carry that over to the compound

    Thanks guys I will try it. My last chest work out I did butterflies then chest Bustes then dumbbell presses, then hit the barbell presses 10 of each no rest then took 2 min break did 10 sets. I did that from flat slite invert then full invert. That was 60 sets 600 reps. I felt that in my chest. I am going to run it for a few weeks see what that does. But change it from work out to work out from the starting positions and mix it up to keep shocking. But I will look up guillitine press thanks

    I JUST started adding those back in. We always called them Pin Bench Press. Because you use the pins in the power rack. You can put on 20-30% more than your 1RM and tear your chest up!
