I'd love to see you guys cover the upper chest. Any tips, tricks, techniques to fill our upper chests!

I've been doing incline barbell bench press for the past 5 months now but last week I switched to the smith machine, and I must say, MUCH MUCH better mmc and I really feel like it's targeting my upper chest a lot better than the bb.

Really motivational stuff down at animalpak.com, specially "the journey" log.

Regarding topics that i would like to see covered there aren`t many that you guys still haven`t covered however i would like to read an article about burnout.

PS: I remember one of my favourite animal pak magazine promos being a picture of the can being held and the picture only showed the forearm with the word "overcome" tattoed on it (sorry for not knowing which one of you guys`forearm it was but i believe it was ?Machine`s?).
Regarding this picture do you have any link to it?

Scout,
Exactly what I thought when I started a modified version of this set before I broke the wrist. The secret is to finish the move at face or eye level.Not just around mid section or chest level.Give the routine a try...the results roll in fast.
