    Wondering how you guys deal with a body part that is so much further developed it overshadows your other body parts? My chest has been always a very strong point and something so easy to build even when i first started. Should hit it once a week still, or every other week?

    I would still hit it once per week. What's your split like though?

    I actually switch my routine up more then usual every couple weeks as to what body parts i am working together, i get to tired of doing the same body parts coupled. I typically do

    1Chest/Back
    2Shoulders/arms
    3.Legs
    4. Shoulders/tricep

    other weeks i will do

    1.shoulders/legs
    2. back/bi
    3. chest/tri
    4.shoulders/tri

    I started to do shoulders twice a week trying to hit them first thing during the beginning of the week and then lighter at the end of the week, and i believe this has helped me alot. I always got made fun of for being so narrowed shouldered, and now i feel hitting shoulders twice a week has really broadened my appearance.

    Overly powered relative to what? Your chest/shoulders, or your back?

    If you're worried that you may be getting too much chest in, try training back first. Priority principles son.

    I always train my back first before my chest because of this. I really would say they overpower my arms if this makes sense. the sides of my chest developed so well it definitely makes my arms look really thin.

    keep lifting and eat. it'll balance itself out eventually. you're not really big enough to be concerned about proportion yet

    nothing is overly developed, you need to build more muscle overall and things will eventually balance out
