I'm not trying to put on any more drastic size (gotta keep the weight down for fights) but its good to see the improvement.
i would like to know what you are doing...those are two areas I need serious work with. I would like to build muscle in these areas because I feel they are out of proportion to the rest of my body. I haven't figured out how to target the right muscle groups....so?
Use less weight until you can really feel the contraction in whatever muscle you're trying to work. There are a million ways to tweak form so it's hard to be specific. However, if you want your chest to grow don't just mindlessly do bench presses. Do the reps and really think about your chest muscles moving the weight. This is the called the mind-muscle connection, and is crucial for really developing your body.
Gaining size is definitely killer though. None of my clothes really fit me anymore so I know something is right. I do suck a doing laundry so they might have shrunk, but I definitely put size on too.
