    Light weight chest exercsises

    Currently, I only have access to 22.5lb dumbbells, and by doing all the regular exercises, I barely feel any pump in my chest at all. Does anyone know any other exercises, or any tips that would help me target my chest more?
    Thanks

    Keep repping with bench press until true failure is reached in every set, that's your only real option.

    You can do flys too.

    You also have access to your entire bodyweight, and can modify pushups to exacerbate difficulty. I'd do pushups and flyes. IMO that dumbbell is not heavy enough for meaningful resistance with presses but you could do super high rep flyes with it.
    Bench: 320
    Squat: 375
    Deadlift: 495

    If you don't do it already, supersets might help until you get a better variety of weights to choose from.

    I'd look at getting resistance bands to supplement your dumbbells. Gymnastics rings for dips and elevated push-ups would also be inexpensive.
