whats the name of that muscle? i dont know wot it is, but im telling u now, pushups isnt gonna do nothing for it. look where its origin and insertion is. notice how neither is on the humerus? so id say this muscle is for inhaling/exhaling... not too sure tho. either way this muscle isnt gonna make sure chest look bigger.

I find straight arm pullovers CANES the interior part of the pectorals, when you get up they are all red too lol!
I mean the type that expand your chest and ribs etc. too, and work your serratus hardcore, i saw them first in the Arnie BIBLE of bodybuilding, and never stopped using it since, one of the best exercises i ever learn for chest development, and in general.
Quick run thru;
1) rest top of shoulders (ONLY) perpendicular to bench (i.e 90 degrees to it)
2) Sink hips down towards floor.
3) Using a single dumbell in one hand holding it straight above you, lower it to behind your head, with hands straight all the way, go as far back as you can and feel the stretch, and with straight arms bring them back to the top, slightly off the straight vertical angle (90 degree to floor means the muscle is resting, so off put it slightly, say 80 degrees or less) and then you can do your next rep.
Works for me, can only say try it and see.

you are truly a P.I.M.PIf what I see does not amaze me, I am not looking hard enough.
The more you learn, the more you realize you don't know.

dumbell flyes haning upside down hit the inner pectoral muscles. If you want to hit the medial pectorls (not outside or inner side) you want to try turning upside and doing dumbell presses for that one....POSITIVE 716251 from NEGATIVE 200,000
