your chest muscles develop at diffrent stages when i first started doin push ups i noticed the outer area of my chest got bigger then as i kept doing push ups i noticed the line in between the chest got more defined and now ive been doing push ups everyday and im starting to notice the line at the bottom of the chest become more define i also see my chest gettin bigger,so juss keep at it and dont be lazy do push upsh at least 5 times a week i promise you will se results

I like doin push up's. Unlike the gym you don't have to travel far. All you need to do is bend down to the ground. :)

Close grip actualy works your back a bit while wide grip works more on your chest and triceps

pushups are a great way to get the chest built up as well as the arms and upper back, another good exercise to do is pull ups they work great for back and arms

your triceps get worked either way but with ur hands close together it works your back as well

reverse push upps, swimming, chin upps, and some exercise i dont know whats called in english.

you lie on the floor, with your toes, forehead and body touching the ground.

move your arms all the way back and forward while keeping them about 2 inches over the floor.

looks kinda like chest swimming.

Dips are pretty damn effective, but of course you need a chin and dip bar...or two really sturdy pieces of something.
