interior chest help

Alright, so Ive been thinking about this for a while, how in the hell do you work out the inside of your chest. I mean flies do the outside, incline the does the top, decline does the bottom. So is there a way to do it? And I apologize if this is a really dumb question but I have been thinking about this and couldn't figure it out. Would it be something like a slightly inside the shoulder width grip on the bench and then bench? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks a bunch

The *inside* of your chest? You mean your lungs, heart, and diaphragm?

You've got your pecs on the outside, your intercostals between the ribs, then it's all organs, baby, organs.

If you want a big chest dead lift and squat. I know it might not make sense but you will understand once you do it for a while. Don't waste your time with exercises that isolate muscles. Concentrate on compound movements and you will grow like never before.

Ive got a ruptured disc right now, so I cant do many compound lifts, healing is supposed to be done by July so Ill start then, but isolation exercises are about all I can do without further injury

I havent ever heard anyone suggest deadlifts and squats to develop chest. When people say dont do isolation they usually talk about bicep or tricep development, not chest since most chest excercises hit numerous muscles (bench press in anterior deltoids, chest, triceps for instance). If you want to develop your chest and especially "inner" chest I would focus on dips. The more you lean foward on the dips the more it hits your chest, the closer you are to vertical the more it is your triceps. I would also do dumbell presses at different angles. Really though until you develop a solid base of chest strength it doesnt make sense to focus on different areas of the chest (upper, lower, inner, etc) and just focus on general development. Hope this helps

Not directly but indirectly. When you squat and dead lift you grow all over. I do agree you should also perform bench presses, overhead presses, dips and other upper body compound movements but the best exercises anyone can do are squats and dead lifts. Cleans are also great explosive movements but you have to do those with perfect form or you can get seriously hurt. The bottom line is if you are into combat sports or any type of athletics you should concentrate on compound movements and explosive exercises.
