    It seems as if every other muscle group gets at least a little sore post workout, but my chest basically feels nothing. Any advice/workouts you guys go for to get it burned up well enough to get it sore

    soreness does not mean muscle growth

    switch exercises, widen grip on the barbell, pause in the bottom position, slower eccentric

    Mine gets a little sore. DB flat bench, DB incline, weighted dips and flys. Finish off thelat day with 2 sets of tricep pushdowns and skull crushers.

    Chest is kinda sore and tris are sore next couple days usually. Only hit chest once every 5-6 days

    I know, but it feels a bit frustrating when everything else atleast 'feels' a bit tired the next day

    Ill try some more drop-sets, though I try to fit em in once in a while as it is.


    I go wide grip on barbell as it is, does it hit the chest more if you go even wider? Ill give the pause on the bottom try, sounds like it might hurt good :coolugh:

    I do chest/back days
    for the chest i switch out workouts but last time I did(chest wise)
    BB bench
    12x 155
    12x 185
    10x 205
    8x 225

    DB incline
    12x 65's
    12x 70's
    10x 75's
    6x 80's

    DB flat
    10x 70's
    8x 75's
    6x 80's
    6x 80's
    6x 80's

    then I did the machine flys(I know, pussy'ish but I feel it the whole way as compared to doing it with db's where there is almost no resistance at the top)

    That was just my last workout, I have tried a more pyramid based set/rep combination but it still wouldn't 'feel' right(sorewise). I know its a retarded thing to bitch about but somehow i dont feel like im getting the same work in since I dont feel sore at all.

    why do you do 2 flat pressing exercises? sub one of them for db/cable flys...plus try going till failure on AT LEAST one set per exercise

    Well I do get 1 fly workout in at the end.
    And the later lifts(like the x8rep ones) are basically till failure(for my weak ass at least)

    seems like your training is on point...i wouldnt worry about not feeling sore. Is your chest getting bigger at least?

    Foam roll everything that isn't your chest. No more soreness.

    Incline BB Press
    Flat DB Press
    Dips
    Incline or Flat Flys or Cable Crossovers

    6-8 reps with heavier weight, do rest pause/ negatives / take 1 or 2 sets to failure

    Cable Crossovers.

    Numerous people on here have mentioned them.

    Guaranteed sore chest
    : Do your chest workout. End it with Cable Crossovers starting at the highest plate total you can (sets of 8-12) and burnout all the way down the stack without rest--only what it takes to move the pins. Before you go to bed, do two sets of as many pushups as you can, as fast as you can. If your chest isn't trying to cramp after doing the sets, then you either aren't doing enough pushups, or your intensity at the gym is subpar.
