How do you know it's fat and not muscle?

If they are muscle, then they are called "Pecs", where as when you have fat, they are called man-titties.

Another good way to tell is if they jiggle when you run.

Of course not.....not to many people do. People, on average, have either man-tits or are chicken chested.

Pecs takes work. Do push ups with your arms as far apart as you can, to redirect the effort from your tricepts to your pecs. Also, make sure you work your back too, because if your pecs are too strong, and your upper back doesn't match, you start to get back aches.

Best way to train the Pectoralis major muscle is to do cable crossovers.

I would disagree with the cables crossover thing.

Best, if you have a gym to go to, is probably just a butterfly machine. Really, with the pecs, you need to work them out in different ways to get results.

Usually, I would do flyes (butterflys, some people call them, but I'm referring to the exercise where you take a dumbbell in each hand, lay on a bench, and raise them laterally) on the ab thing (whatever it is, it's a downward sloping ramp where you put your feet in the holder at the top and to sit ups). I found that was good for targeting the pecs in different directions. Cable crossovers might be better because when doing flyes, you have more leverage (thus less resistance) toward the top of the execution. Of course, I still focused more on the exercises like bench presses and dips, which would do the triceps as well. I used to have pecs, but I'm a bit fatter now.

I don't think pecs are worth the time it takes to develop them, mainly because I relate any exercising I do back to how it would help me fight. Afterall, unless your making a living in sports, the only practical use for building muscles besides the legs is fighting to protect your life. Pecs don't add to the power of your strikes enough to discount the extra girth you have to move to strike. If you can't strike quickly, you can't strike. Best bet there is just to develop your core and your foundation. That way you can provide powerful strikes from those muscles instead of relying on the arm. An entire body is much stronger than on arm, right?

I prided myself on quick punches, and I had some pretty decent pecs. Now, not like a pro wresler or anything, but they were damn nice. I can't imagine having pecs that would get in the way. You would need strange shaped roid pecs for that. They do help with making punches crisper, as they help for accelerating your fist in the last third of a punch, and the fallowthrough. No real power, but some speed. Power is all in the upper back and triceps.


I think that the reason that guys build pecs and abs (Abs are a useless muscle, they keep your guts from falling out....lol), is for picking up chicks. The chicks dig the muscular look. For me, thats more important than fighting random people. If I don't want to fight people, I stay out of bad areas.

a bit?

if you get really skinny, your muscles are more obvious so you look muscular.

The added strength and speed you get from building any muscle in general (especially larger muscles) is greater than the amount the added weight of the muscle slows/weighs it down.

That's quite incorrect. You use just about every muscle traveling from your fist to your toes when throwing a truly powerful punch.

QUOTE
Abs are a useless muscle, they keep your guts from falling out....lol


Also incorrect. The core (Abs, lats, and other muscles that support the spine) is the center of your balance, as well as your power. Without a strong core, you don't easily win any fights. I'm surprise a trainer never told you that. It's one of the first things any fighter learns.

Not always, and not when it comes to an efficient, powerful strike.
