    Do you include cardio in your training? That can be a help as well as you seem to be holding a good bit of fat so my guess you are around 20ish percent BF.

    Others may chime in as well to make suggestions or give feedback.
  5. no cardio as of now but I do plan to throw it in when I start my cut
  6. thanks for the feedback

    I think you need to work your inner chest more.

    I'd say 2 30 minute cardio sessions a week is a good start, and the treadmill, stationary bike or the stairmaster are good choices. Also taking walks every day helps too.
  9. Yeah my chest deff lacks , I’ve been hitting it hard 2x week hard

    Try cable decline flys/presses as a super set. 10 flys then 10 presses. Don’t use a sharp angle. It will help to frame out your chest. It will also make you sore as fuck again.

    He is eating in a surplus to add mass. How does doing cardio help add mass?

    He may be wanting to add mass... But, from my perspective a little cut would go a long way before trying to add more mass. Sensitivity is a beautiful thing.... If he's been trying to grow "seriously" for 2 years, it's time to cut IMO.....

    MW didn’t suggest cutting though. He implied that doing cardio during a bulk can lower fat or keep it to a minimum.

    I gotcha... I guess I was looking from my perspective as to what I would advise, and interpreting MW as advising similarly. I believe fat gain on a mass gaining phase should be controlled via diet, not with cardio... Obviously cardio for health reasons is different.

    On another note, I do find some mild cardio helps keep my digestion going.... Nothing crazy, just dog walks etc.

    How many chins are you doing each week? I would try and add to your V taper by doing at least 200 Chins each week. Upper and inner chest also. After doing this for a while you can turn around and cut and you'll really shine. Good luck brother!
  17. Thanks again everyone taking all advice into consideration

    Don't do anything for your chest except for basic chest exercises.

    Bench, bench, dumbbell bench and add in some bench.

    You need a foundation. Build the base and then shape it. For now, bench and dumbbell inclines. Maybe a few sets of butterflies but focus on bench
  19. Yeah I’ve been keeping it simple , bench , squat and deadlifts and a few accessories here and there
