    Unhappy Non existing upper/inner chest - it does not look normal

    Hello everyone. My age is 21 *
    I wil try to make it short.
    I have for many months tried to figure out a problem that i believe had come down to being because of genetics.
    I have tried to develop my chest with every exercise possible i have researched. I m always 100 % sure doing these exercises in their proper way and with proper form. I have benchpressed (reached new pr), done incline bp, pec flys, etc.

    The problem is my outter and lower chest are well developped but my inner at upper chest are literally non existing ! I do not know how to post pictures (profile pic) but imagine that there is a diagonal line stretching from my upper outer part of my shoulder to around the lower inner part of my chest. The upper part of that line is litterally nothing like there is no meat at all.
    I feel like my front delts are too big and it does not look good with regards to my upper chest.

    I want to hear if anyone has any similar problem trying to fix this - I have tried but nothing seems working..

    Most people have trouble developing the inner and upper parts of their chest - it's not your specific genetics. You'll just have to try harder.

    What are the other "every exercise possible" you've tried? There are many others you could try other than the standard presses and flyes. Although you say you do 100% proper form there are also techniques you can use on certain exercises to help as well.

    Honestly I do not really know their name. But I have almost every montg or so been in various fitness channels and forums, executing the exercises that are recommended. Exercices explaine by athlean x and such. I do not just go for an exercice and believe that this is it ! I vary my workout routine to really hit the hole chest, but of course primarily the upper chest. Can you maybe suggest a workout/nutrition/food routine that could make it look more filled ?

    Honestly if you say you've tried almost every exercise possible but are too lazy to try to list them out, I'm too lazy to make suggestions since I could be suggesting a bunch of things you've already decided don't work. There's also no chest-growth specific foods or nutrition.

    Your chest has decent development but does look like it has a hollowed out area in the upper/inner portion, which actually could be at least partially genetic. Would need a full chest-flex pic too get a better idea.

    When you flex your chest and feel the hollow area does it seem like there's no muscle whatsoever, or is there muscle there that's just underdeveloped?

    I did not mean that I litterally tried EVERY existing exercise, but feel like I habe tried a lot.

    Dumbel incline presses, benchpresses, cable flyes cross, chest press incline machine, machine flyes, dips, diamond push ups with more rotated hands hitting upper chest, single arm standing cable flyes were i cross it over the opposite site (i do this with the cable a little above my shoulder to focus more on the uper line of the chest), upright front raises, Overhead pushups

    I do not know how to opload photos on the thread/post, i tried looking for any kind of upload photo button :/

    It feels like there is a very thin layer og i would say muscle tissue but it just does nt look nice for me. the problem is that when i workiut out and do fx some upright frontal raises woth a dumbell og cable, it does nt hit that hollow part, but just make that line

    Forget how it looks for a second - if you start w/ one arm low and outwards, and bring it across your chest up and inwards (like a low-to-high cable fly), and you feel muscle flexing in the area that looks hollow, then you can definitely develop that area.

    If you literally feel nothing there when you do that, you might just have a weirdly shaped chest (w/ each pec being a trapezoid instead of a rectangle). Normally when ppl say they genetically can't develop something it's BS, but that diagonal line looks so distinct as if it may be the top of your pec fibers.

    But no one's going to be able to tell you - you have to feel/flex for yourself either without weights or while you do a low-to-high 1 arm cable fly or something. You have enough development where you should feel something there if it's muscle.

    Keep doing heavy incline presses. You will need to put some weight on the bar and eat.

    15 kg. If i go about 20 or over i feel my front delt does the most work even if pull my shoulders back.

    The problem is when i go with two dumbells i never feel that inner part being contracted. I have set a plan on trying various workout chest exercises with only singe dumbell to get more contraction
