    Weird chest gap?

    Hey all! I’m new to this forum and wanted a word of advice. I’ve gotten back into the gym after a 2 year long break! I went from being an ectomorph (barely pushing 135-140lb) to sitting now at 165-170! (24% BF) I’ve been lifting for about a month and a half now and have noticed this weird chest gap. I read some articles about Terry Crews, Scott Steiner, and other professionals having this weird gap and freaked myself out. Is it actually something to be concerned about or is it just body fat? I would really love to go back to having my old chest. Any help is appreciated! Thanks! *adding pics for reference*

    Not weird at all, just how you muscle insertions are; everyone has a different 'shape' to the chest, some have a gap there and some do not. It does seem the added fat just makes it look more pronounced since you hold it more on the outer part of your chest.

    On that note, you are gaining way to fast, a lot of what you put on is fat, slow it to 3-4 pounds per month or you will just look sloppy.
    Short cuts to success are often paved with lies.
    1/13/16: Massive hernia.
    5/10/16: Finally back to lifting, light but improving.
