Most bodybuilders start their weekly workout routine with chest day, and for good reason. The chest is the body part, which stands front and center in every front pose, and is featured prominently in most side poses as well. The chest is the focal point of the eyes when they first see a physique. A weak chest immediately relegates that competitor to the bottom half of the placings. On the other hand, a strong chest immediately places the competitor into the upper echelon of placings.
Q: I have a mostly symmetrical physique and pride myself on looking very balanced, but my chest is asymmetrical and it’s a real source of worry. I am going to be competing in the spring and I want to bring up my left pec, which is noticeably different in shape and size. It wasn’t as noticeable a year ago, but has become more so. What can I do?
