Any downside to doing this exercise everyday? I've been doing every other day and I see no results on my chest. Every other muscle I worked on has improved a lot (back, shoulders, triceps, quads) but my chest stays the same. That's why I'm considering doing chest press everyday.

    Train to failure.
    Make sure your nutrition is on point and you're on a surplus.
    If all else fails, you just have shit chest genetics.

      Worst fucking advice
      Good way to overload your CNS and recovery abilities beyond what they can support
      shouldn't train to failure more than once a month on each body part

        Training to failure is a great way to break down your muscle tissue and grow them stronger, but yes you do need more recovery time. If you're only lifting 3x/4x a week then training to failure isn't a problem

    If you can train them every day, that means you are not training hard enough. Just do more sets and go to failure pussy

        Do incline db press and dips, all you need for chest. Unironically machine chest press is better cuz u can go to failure just worrying dumbbells will smash ur face.

          I get extremely tired doing chest exercises like dumbell press, to the point I can'et even do them anymore, but I never get my chest muscles tired. It's not like leg extensions where I can't event walk after doing them.

            you're cheating with ur shoulders and triceps, they're failing before ur chest gets tired. do low weight and practice until u get form and mind muscle connection right.

              I just tried with less than 10 lbs.
              Only thing I feel is my joints. No chest activation at all.
              Why is it so hard to train? the most important muscle for looks and...
              I can bench 150lbs, but I barely can lift 25lbs with dumbbells.
              I'm so fucking sad. Dumbbell Chest Flys also work nothing at all. I can't do pushups. I have sagging hips.
              Why, oh god, why?

                Do other chest exercises until you find one that you feel. Dips n pullovers etc.

                see

                only do each muscle group every 3 days to recoverymaxx. a 3 day split is best for this. also for chest I recommend drop sets

                drop set cable flys and then immediately segue into drop set of chest press. do this until you cannot do it anymore. the weight will vary, but on the chest press I put a 45, three 10s and 1 25. once I fail I remove the 25 then immediately go back until I fail again then remove a 10, etc etc until there are no more plates on the machine.

                I mean, it's a different movement and you can use both hands.
                Can I do it with a dumbbell?

                Ok, just did it (on the bench) with 30 lbs (4x12) and it was easy. Didn't really feel my chest tho.
                Is lying cable crossover good for the chest? I can move 50 lbs there

                the svend press is a standing movement. you are doing something different
                do what you can with the cable flys. you need to get stronger

                the idea is to hold 2 plates together so that they don't slide apart and fall. this forces your pecs to get active holding them together

                How fast are your reps and how is your range of motion? If it helps something I like to do sometimes is to lower the weight and do slower reps, focusing on good form and trying to use the right muscles (almost like you’re flexing them a bit while doing it).

                they are normal, not fast but not slow. My ROM is great I guess, i watched a lot of videos before starting and I'm always paying attetion to my form.
                Honestly, I feel my chest muscles only when I not holding any weight.

                I just tried the Sven Press with 22lbs (3x15) and I guess it's ok, I actually felt my chest a little bit but I'm worried it might be because it happens everytime you move your hands like that... anyway.
                I've read the Sven Press is supposedly controversial.

        The weight cartel will hate me for saying this but use less weight and focus on mind muscle connection. If you go too heavy your arms/shoulders are likely to take over.

    Do Svend presses until you have enough pectoral muscle to even recruit in the first place. It took me from a 1 plate benching Andy to being able to manually bounce my pecs.

    Chest is very easy to overtrain retard. Do cable flies as well as flat, incline and decline 3x a week max and make sure you’re eating good after.

        Probably about 4 months, since I signed up for the gym, to be honest. I was doing 30s, now I do 50s. I actually just got back from the gym and squeezed in a few reps of the 55s after I finished my sets of the 50s. Just consistency. i got a long way to go
