Man i think mass also depends on genetics..... Try some harder moves or use weights its not so bad : D. You can start eating like animal so u can become heavier Razz .

Best way is high volume. High volume pushups are crazy, and they do great things for size. Ever see a picture of charles atlas? He had a good chest, and he recomended doing high volume pushups, 200 a day to be exact. Look at herschel walker too. All great examples, all with high volume pushups. I love em, and they have done a lot for me. Doing high volume pushups, supplemented with dips to failure or close to failure works really well. If you have some questions on this, feel free to pm me. Hope this helps. Very Happy

Hello
Excuse me for asking but is 200 a lot?

If i do 10 sets of 20 throughout the day, is that enough to build chest size?

I'm asking because i'm a beginner and 200 doesn't sound like a lot to me, i'm already doing 5 to 10 sets of roughly 20 pushups every day and my chest is okish, nothing more

If u make them throught the day i think this is Grease The Groove man. Try them on a single workout with dips and if u find them easy then increase the reps or decrease time. If u can make 10 sets of 20 reps throughout the day then try to do them in a high volume session with 15 sec rest between : D 10 sets x 20 reps with 15 sec rest . U will get fire on your chest .

I didnt say that man. I said that if u make these sets and reps throught the day then u use GTG methode. Its different to make a workout throught the day than making it in a small session like 1-2 hours : ) Cheers.
