The Fix: Building a bigger chest requires both high- and low-rep sets. This helps to hit all of the muscle fibers and develop strength and definition. Focus on hitting the chest twice a week with a bigger, multijoint exercise at the beginning of your routine and an isolation exercise toward the end. A great example would be a dumbbell chest press and incline cable flye. For the main pressing exercises, stick with a neutral grip as it tends to alleviate and prevent shoulder pain.
Exercises to Help: The squeeze press is terrific for building size as it combines the actions of a press with a flye. To make matters even better, it uses a neutral grip to lessen the stress on the shoulder joint.
