    Best exercise to build lower chest

    I have a pretty flat chest...and want to build the whole thing up, but mostly the lower chest so it makes that little ledge. I was thinking just keep doing dips, but I am doing the Frankies NY Mass, and only doing incline BB, and dips right now. Is there anything I could change about it to focus on my chest more? Thanks for the help.

    Arrow

    Flat or decline presses with a barbell or dumbbells would definitely help.

    Make sure you're leaning forward and have your chin tucked into your chest on dips as well to maximize tension placed on the chest rather than triceps.

    I like DB decline presses, some like dips though and swear by them.

    Decline BB presses are good too. Try all three and see which one you like the most.

    Flat bench should also hit the lower chest a bunch.

    May i ask why you are meant to tuck your chin into your chest? Sorry just that i never heard this before. I always do dips leaning forward and head facing up (but level with the ground).

    Dips
    Flat barbell/dumbbell bench press
    Decline flyes

    A good idea may also to be to employ some sort of intensity such as pre/post-exhaust, supersets, drop-sets, descending/ascending sets etc. (Not all, but vary different methods for different workouts)

    Also, make sure you FEEL the lower chest being worked.

    Also, make sure you're eating enough protein/carbs/calories.

    I found out that wide grip bench is more effective than decline bench. Decline for me works more of deltoid and tricep muscles. Everybody is different. Cable crossovers help as well for a finisher.

    it is for pecs, BUT BUT BUT the trade-off is that you're exposing yourself to serious shoulder injuries in the future.

    I love LF Dips, when I first started them I hated 'em because I could only do 3 BW LF dips now I'm doing 3 sets of 8 with 30 lbs of weight strapped to me.
    Also, it has helped my lower chest a lot more then decline bench did. Then again I never gave decline bench a real chance before I discovered LF dips.

    Weighted dips.

    If you do any flyes don't go too heavy on them like others suggested, you could hurt your shoulder that way.

    Here is what I did today and it felt like I hit my chest pretty hard. Since I am using the NY Mass program, I tried to keep it pretty close. Here was my day
    Incline BB Press 5x5
    Flat DB Press 5x5
    Shoulder press 2x8
    Dips (found the right angle) 5x5

    I am thinking about taking shoulder press out completely because after the Incline and flat presses, they are pretty fried. Do you guys think taking out the shoulder press is a good idea? My shoulders seem to react to a medium weight with 8-10 reps by the way. I do not have 3.9% bodyfat...not that I know of anyway... I havent done one in a while....last time a year ago it was 7.9% but I think it may be up to 9 or so now cuz I put on a lot of weight.

    Make sure you're leaning forward and have your chin tucked into your chest on dips as well to maximize tension placed on the chest rather than triceps.
    Hey man I currently have no access to a gym casue I am going to the University of Guyana for furthering my studies. My lower chest really looks awkward its looks a little puffy so can you please reccomend a exercise for me which doesnt involve weight lifting.

    Just eat and do bench press and you'll get what you want. Flat, incline and decline. Hit your chest from all angles to even it out. Bench, works your entire chest. It'll all grow in time.
