    How to tone up chest

    What is the best way to tone up a chest? My chest is pretty flabby, so I don't really wanna try and bulk it up right now because I have a feeling it will look even worse, so i was hoping there were some excersizes that tighten it up rather than make it bigger? If there are some, can you guys tell me? Thanks

    rub an printer cartridge allover you chest
    If your worried about the way you look, try to remember your probably fatter than you think. Maybe you should consider an eating disorder.

    Next time your feeling sad and depressed, remember no one likes an emo.

    Lightbulb

    If you are somewhat fat/overweight in general, I would focus my attention first on improving diet and doing cardio.
    Now, if that's not the case (say, you are relatively lean but your chest is specially "flabby")...

    I would recommend a two-pronged attack at your problem:
    1. Increasing chest hardness: In my experiencie, you can certainly achieve this (over time, of course) via peak contraction exercises and/or use of cables
    2. Spot reduction: High-to-very-high reps in some chest exercises, with minimal rest time between sets.

    For example, you could implement something like this at the end of your regular chest workout:

    -Cable crossovers: 5-7 sets x 12-15 reps, holding the contraction at the end
    -Pushups (or any chest pressing exercise done "light"): 5-7 sets x as many reps as possible, though NOT going near failure. I would aim for 25-50 reps x set. Keep rest times between sets under a minute.

    more reps you do the more you will tone. you want to aim for around 3000 reps(sarcasm)


    no such thing as toning.
    there are only


    strength gains
    mass gains
    endurance gains

    To tone your chest, take 5lb dumbells and do flat, incline and decline bench presses, aim for 33906236 reps and 3289563E166 sets...




    Lower your bodyfat! Argh, don't people use the search function?
    If you want to get big, be good at the Squat, Deadlift, pull and bench press, the rest is between you and your dinner plate.

    There are 10 types of people: those that understand binary and those that do not.

    I was at the Zoo the other day, there was only one animal there: a dog. It was a ****zu.

    You die at the end; act accordingly.

    "2. Spot reduction: High-to-very-high reps in some chest exercises, with minimal rest time between sets"

    Um... won't work. You can't spot reduce.

    Lose bodyfat and gain muscle. That's all you can really do, and there are much more efficient ways to do it than high reps. If they are already trained and not slack, I don't know if there's much you can do for a muscle without making it grow, although I've heard strength gains to tone a muscle up. High reps are better for hypertrophy, and too high reps are better for very little other than endurance and temporary pump. Sprinters are far more toned than marathon runners for example...
