I need some new/unique chest workouts to get rid of a little fat on my chest. Literally the only part of my body without alot of definition still.
Which ones work best for you?

What they said. You can't workout your chest and just lose fat there. It is reduced proportionally throughout the body. Storing the last of it in the belly.
This is what I have been doing for chest and it has been working great.
BB Flat Bench Press- 3 x 3-5 reps
BB Incline Bench Press- 3 x 6-10 reps
Weighted Dips- 3 x 6-10 reps
Decline, Flat, Incline Flyes- 2 sets EACH x 10-12 reps
That will help build muscle in your chest. Your fat on your chest may be fine, but you may just not have the muscle development to notice anything. What is your body fat%?Rugby is better...

My chest workout currently looks like this, for the past 3 weeks.
DB Bench Press 3x 8-10
DB Incline Press 3x 8-10
DB Incline Flyes 2x 12-15
DB Flat Flyes 2x 12-15
Decline Bench Press 3x 8-10
I usually fire off 70+ Pushups in a set.
Body fat is around 11-12%
I also have a very strict diet, high in protein, moderate in carbs, low in fats.
...Not sure what else I can do here...Life is too short to be small.

Your workout seems ok.... but how often do you do that routine? 2x a week?
I have noticed that by switching up between dumbells, barbells (except flat press because of shoulder issues), having a spotter, and using machines.... as well as continually increasing the weight is what made my pecs start to show.
Everyone is right though, total body fat % is one of the biggest factors. Might not see it now, but I used to have the worst amount of fat in my chest.... just lowered my BF and worked hard during my chest routines, and it has VERY SLOWLY gone away.

I was told to stick to dumbells as much as possible to hit my balancing muscles as well as condition for ROTC. So far that has also had a good impact.
I do that exact workout, sometimes with dips thrown in 2x a week followed by biceps and abs which I do every day except on off days.
It will go away, I know it. Just takes time. I will definitely try some more exercises aforementioned though, and hope it knocks some time off!Life is too short to be small.
