    tonight, i did all chest area work outs which consists of: bench press, decline bench press, dumbells on flat bench, and other misc. after an hour and half of working out the chest, my afterpain effect seems to be on my upper arms/shoulder/around armpit area. any idea why is that?

    the way i saw it was if your working out one area, that area will be taking the soreness the night after (legs/thighs/biceps/etc).

    its because you did way to much chest and with bad form most likely.

    There's no need to do so much chest.

    If I could make a suggestion it would be to vary things up from workout to workout.

    For example: on one chest day, do flat barbell bench, incline barbell bench, decline barbell bench, and flys on a pecdeck or with dumbbells.

    On the next chest day you can switch everything to dumbbells and perhaps substitute dips for your decline bench.

    Just my $0.02.

    Why don't you try bench for a few weeks - flat, incline, decline, maybe throw another 1 or 2 exercises in. Do this for 2 weeks.

    Next 2 weeks use dumbells only - flat, incline, decline, trow another 2 chest exercises in.

    Keep on switching it up.

    Probably because that is where the fibers of the pectoralis converge to insert on the humerus. (Your pecs are attached to your upper arm bone!!!1)
