Muscle Train the Weak Point
Chest Muscle Train the Weak
When you have
a weak point in chest development, train your pectorals according to the
Priority Principle, doing the exercise for that weak area first, when
you are fresh and at your strongest. We would begin our pectoral
with barbell incline presses followed by dumbbell incline presses to
really hit this area. Only then, we would go to regular bench presses
and the rest of our chest routine.
But there are
times when this kind of specialized weak point training is not
justified. For example, if you have problems with the inner pectoral, we
would not recommend starting out your routine with an exercise like
cable crossovers. Instead, try to work on this area as you are doing the
rest of your chest workout - perhaps locking out all of your pressing
movements, and really tensing and contracting the inner pecs. Then, at
the end of your workout, you could add on some extra cable crossovers or
other exercises specifically designed to hit the inner chest.
thing can be done for outer chest development. You can emphasize this
area during your routine by lowering the weights a few inches farther
when doing dumbbell flys and by getting the fullest possible stretch
with other pectoral exercises. You don't have to schedule specific outer
pectoral exercises at the top of your routine in order to deal with this
weak point the way you would if your problem was the upper, lower, or
middle chest. The most adjustment we would recommend for pectoral weak
points would be to widen your grip while doing bench presses in order to
hit the outer pecs or use a narrow grip to work the inside pecs harder.
