whatever you choose, you just need an excersice that isolates the chest to its fullest, also i would squeeze/flex your chest as much as possible during your excerise, that will get your chest pumping for sure

It was a pretty intense leg day for me, but I know I can amp it up! I took Jack3d before hand because the guy at Vitamin Shoppe let me have a sample. Interestingly enough I believe it gave me a boost so I may consider purchasing it in the near future.

So I ended up hitting my head on the 9th and I lifted really well Wednesday. But the next day I felt nauseous and decided it wouldn't be in my best interest to keep lifting for a while. I'm resting until the week of the 22nd due to that and a camping trip this weekend.
