chest dilemma

What do i di with my chest. I'm reluctant to work it too hard as i dont want it any bigger, but i want it more toned and defined.

I feel its too big, but even when i trim right down i still feel the same. Ive only been working my chest very minimal for years now, but i cant get it flat and toned. i'm afraid if i work it hard it will pop out too much.

any ideas?

Hi Coop,

I would think that 99% of trainers out there would want a bigger chest, and you want a smaller chest!!!

If it's bigger than you want, couldn't you just not work it and let it shrink a bit?

As far as I know, definition will show with low bodyfat levels.


Good luck.

don't work the chest as much and it naturally atrophy(shrink ) it wont happen over night will take a few weeks another suggestion is don't eat too much protein, just concentrate on carbs that's how the roadrunners etc do it

Ive hardly been working my chest for years now and it still seems bulkier than other areas of my body. The only work i do on it is 3 or 4 sets of dips, and 3 sets of bench twice a week, and i only do this so it doesnt get flabby.

Your right Hulk, most guys would kill for more size on there chest, but i hate the bulky chest look, i prefer a chest like a surfer or kickboxer.

Its probably one of those things where im overeacting and its just my imagination.

Thanx for your help guys.

12-16 sets/week for chest is probably more volume than most would use I think.

If you train chest less, just once per week, it will not get flabby, unless you are carrying fat.

Maybe just do more cardio.

Thats a lot of chest work you are doing. Just do three sets of benches OR dips once per week, alternating week to week to keep it tight.

Is it really that big that you worry about it??? May be train harder on the other parts to equal things out.
