    Ben is exactly right.

    Trying to"work different parts" of one muscle in the explicit attempt at developing it somehow DIFFERENTLY is is an exercise in futility.

    And sport specific anything comes from...ya know...the sport.

    Strength-training transcends the particulars.

    I disagree with whoever said dips don't increase punching power. I punch pretty darn hard, and I swear by the dips.

    if you want bodybuilding tips, consult arnold's encyclopedia of bodybuilding, asshats.

    allow me to quote my arnold's:

    "This emphasis on Incline Presses had its effect-after a while my upper pecs grew enormously until I could literally stand a glass of water on the upper part of my chest when I hit a side chest shot."

    Exactly. The pecs each have an upper and lower section, as well as the attachments near the sternum and the shoulders. Dumbell pressing is good for hitting the shoulder attachments because you can move the dumbells in more of a "punching" curve.

    i used to overcompensate for my weak chest with my delts and my triceps, but with focused weak point training i'm able to hit my chest pretty hard and i get a good pump out of it. and my chest in the last few months has been blowing up like a balloon.

    I think that's more due to the fact that you switched up your routine and your body is growing as a result. Focused angle training is no more important than unfocused heavy compound movements. After that routine no longer produces gains in strength, you'll have to switch to a different chest exercise to stimulate new growth.
