    pectus excavatum

    So I have a minor case of pectus excavatum. Most people would notice this as like having a soup bowl buried in your chest. For me it's minor and actually more like my breast bone is like a birds. Kind of sticks out. Most peoples chest is kind of flat so when they build pecs it shows easily. Mine is sort of pulled back so it doesn't show.

    As I've been working out and losing the fat. (At 15% right now.) When I flex it's like my muscles disappear. Has anyone ever dealt with this situation?

    The reason I'm asking is I'd like to determine where I should be concentrating when working on my chest. Normally I do more flat bench than incline but I was thinking of reversing that.

    Eat big, work your chest hard twice a week, get adequate rest, repeat. You can't do much better than that. Don't get caught too up with the specifics of incline/decline/flat bench. I've yet to see someone who out-foxed their genetic pectoral shape by training them from a different angle. You can do all three for variety but don't expect it to have much if any effect on the shape of your pecs.

    Thanks. I need to eat bigger but right now at 15% bf I thought I'd lose more before trying.

    I'm eating constantly but still under my limits. I've got titties that are driving me nuts.

    3 months ago they were so fat my nipples were inversed. At least they poke out now.

    Ah I see from your pics on the before. At least I think I see one nip is higher than the other. Accident?

    You look ripped now and it's not noticable from what I see.
