Thanks for the advices fellas.
Those are sick photos. Respect, amazing arms.
Yeah since i injured myself this summer... barbell benching.... really bad... i took a short break.. then hit the chest again and started hitting it hard again... BAM got worse... to the point i could not do pushups.. even squatting was hurting my shoulder...
Anyways for last 3+ months no chest exercising AT ALL... slowly threw in shoulder exercises though... man my chest became flat and my triceps almost dissapeared
I am still feeling a pinch in the shoulder/chest area... but its improved.. so im taking it easy.. that being said I have been working around the injury for last several months.
Working back and legs through squats mostly as focus.. when i work back no pain good stuff... shoulders secondarily slowly digging in... but chest nothing.. arms been doing some basic exericses but they are not really packing on size... for me dips and parallel dip machine and close bench have been size builders but a big no no now
I'll take your advices and try a few variations... My arms and chest have shrunk and the arms just don't look proportional to my back and legs... sorta really gay... hating it... so i need to concentrate on some serious arm growth... chest will have to wait unless im stupid and wana tear something again...
One old bw exercise i used to do besides pushups when i did martial arts was one of those uhm... well you would put your arms on sideways bench and legs in front and then 'dig in'.. kind of like a dip but arms behind u.. unfortunately this too kills my shoulder.. too scared to even try it since it was killing last time i tried... they are not a bad exercise either especially if u can load up plates on ur crotch or something... pretty basic bw exercise that can be modified but unfortunately at the moment still too risky too..
