How to get flat pecs. Thread starter TheSiege Start date May 25, Sidebar Sidebar. Forums Social Health and Fitness.
Jun 5, 3, 8 I've seen guys in the gym with pecs that border on B cups. I am transforming my body from the skinny fat I am now, to a more athletic physique and I would prefer my pecs by more flat, like pancake shaped rather than sticking out like boobs. Is there certain chest exercises to avoid or ones to focus on to accomplish this? Sep 26, 5, 1, TheSiege said:. Reactions: Kaido. SlitheryDee Lifer. Feb 2, 17, 18 It's hard to understand what you're describing here.
Do you mean that these guys are walking around with such large pectoral muscles that they appear to have breasts, or do you just mean they're just fat?
Get strong and ripped up top with this three-workouts-a-week chest, back and shoulders plan
If it's the first problem, don't worry about it. It's going to take a very long time to reach that level of development. If you ever hit the point where you think you've got enough chest muscle, you can stop increasing the weight of your workouts and stay there. I suppose one thing you can do to help is avoid anything that's targeting the lower pecs. Decline presses, chest-centric dips, decline flies, etc are all purported to hit the lower pecs. Targeting your lower pecs means that the bottom half of your chest will get thick, which will cause your shirt to sort of "tent" over it, which might sometimes look like moobs.
Most of those are exercises I don't concern myself with anyway because I think they're a waste of time except for the dips , but they are extra counter productive if you're specifically avoiding a thick lower chest. A lot of it is going to be bodyfat percentage as well.
Even if you're relatively lean, you might still carry a bit of extra fat in your lower pecs.
