Hi, my name is Sergio from Laredo, Texas andmy AX Jeff question is, How can I properly form my Pecsé I've been following your workouts and I doget results on both muscles. I do feel the growth. I feel more like my right Pec has better shapeand I want to see how I can balance them out andhave this one start forming properly. So any tips you can give me will really help. What's up Sergioé Thank you for your question.
That is a great question. It's actually very,very, very common. Matter of fact, yours truly doesn't have balancedPecs. You see if you look here at mine, you seethat basicly this Pec here, my left Pec kind of takes a sharp turn and heads out this way. Whereas this one kind of comes all the waydown to the top here of my Abs and it comes over and it makes it's turn. So what causes it, what can you do to fixthat if that's your issue. Nothing.
It's all about how your muscles attach, andhere as they attach to the Sternum, for whatever reason, this here, this area is just not attachingall the way immediately, as much as my Pec on my right. The fibers come all the way here and attachright on to the Sternum, whereas here they just don't make it all the way across. They attach right to the very outer portion,remember your Sternum is going to kind of splay out here at the bottom.
So they're attaching more to the outer portionof the Sternum, they obviously still have to connect to bone in order to be anchored. But they're attaching way further out on mySternum than let's say, these are, where they're coming all the way on the top right down themidline. So if that's not your problem though, if there'ssomething let's say you just have say, one Pec is much smaller than the other. That problem can be addressed in 2 differentways. Number 1. You want to do a little bit of unilateralwork. Because especially if you're doing a
Barbell Bench Press, the first thing you want to do is swap insome Dumbbells. Because when you bring the Dumbbells intoplay it forces you to be a little bit more in command of each side individually, right. You want to try to move them together so it'sgoing to cause you to not be able to rely on one stronger side than the other. The second thing you can do, actually partof that, so that's 1A, 1B, would be once you have those Dumbbells inyour hands,
try to put down the one on your stronger sideand do the one on your weaker side by itself. I know it sounds crazy, it might actuallyincrease the length of your workout but it's going to allow you to really squeezeand try to gain more mindmuscle control over that muscle. Likely if it's a lot smaller than the other,I bet you're probably lacking a good ability to contract that muscle. And they are independant of each other. You can have one that's more neurologicallyturned on and something more in control of
