I was asked how to flex your chest and feel your chest without letting your biceps take over.
When I do chest, I can’t seem to flex my pecs that well and instead feel that my arms are doing most of the work. As a result, I’ve had a difficult time getting a nice striation in the middle of my chest. I’m sure there’s something in my form that I can improve. What can you recommend I do to make sure my pecs are flexed and doing the work and not my arms?
You’re defiantly using too many arms in your movement. Some of it is your exercise selection as certain movement lend themselves to more arm involvement. The biggest issue is your hand placement per movement. You have to factor in where you place your hands as they’ll either rotate or not rotate your shoulder joint which effects your biceps involvement.
