    Must have lower chest to have upper chest?

    Think about it, I've never seen anyone with an overdeveloped upper chest. or a bigger upper chest than lower chest. So maybe the best way to get an upper chest is to train lower chest?

    I just took 3 weeks off all chest work because of a minor injury. So I thought I would try an experiment, I did 4 sets of incline DB press and 2 sets of incline cable flys and nothing else!
    Guess what, only my upper chest was sore the next day.

    Probably more of a genetic thing?. Flat bench fly's, and presses pretty well work the pecs in general; I know there movements that concentrate on either upper or lower. But my point is if you don't develop pretty well with an overall exercise, you are just not going to have super pecs.

    As a genetic thing I was fortunate, I have always had good pec development, even before I started lifting.

    Lee Haney had the freakiest upper chest I've seen. Vince Taylor, never did incline work.

    I'll agree with that, but Chris Cormier has some great all round chest development. That guy has freakish genetics...

    Probably your pectoralis minor, not the clavicular head of your pectoralis. Furthermore, that doesn't mean that your "upper chest" is going to grow or strengthen while your lower chest maintains.

    No it was the upper part of my pectoralis.....and I don't know what it means but it would appear to me that you can focus to some degree more on one area of your chest.

    The old upper lower chest debate lives on.

    Most of how your chest develops will be determined by your genetics.
    Cool
