Speed up your lagging upper-chest development with these 7 exercises and techniques!
If your chest workout is always ordered something like this—flat bench press, incline press, decline press, fly—you’ve got all the makings of a complete chest workout. That’s not to say, however, that you’re going to have complete chest development.

Gym goers who follow the “flat bench first” approach usually have deficiencies in their upper and lower chest that start showing up over time. And some simply have genetic deficiencies in a particular area, which forces them to redouble their efforts to bring up their upper pecs.
If you’re looking to build more thickness, muscle, and strength in your upper chest, here are seven ways you can quickly restructure your training to address your weakness.
