i dont give a shit what pros do. look, how many ppl do you know that train like pros but look like shit, maybe 99% of ppl? pros can train any fucking way they want, they have the genetics to grow regardless of how they get stimulation. i would put money on the table that the way i train is superior... not only for strength but muscle density, shape and growth

Post up some pics, I'd be curious to see how it's worked out for you. Additionally - I've already stated that I have tried doing more presses, etc. Let's see, if pressing has gotten me where I am and say that I'm wrong and I DO start growing more, then my front delts are going to continue to grow along with my chest, not helping the issue at all. Aside from that, I've already stated that working my chest more often doesn't seem to help me. Maybe you just have an awesome recovery system. However, most people train chest once every 5-7 days for a reason.

im not taking anything away from how people train... dorian for exp has been the only saving grace for bodybuilding for me... however what works for him and a select few others works for nobody..
just for ref... take the top 20 pros, any of them. now compare them to the 20+million people that workout and train like them. they less than .1% ! it only seems logical that what there has to be a better way for everyone else. copying a routine from a world class athlete is no good unless you are making the same progress. i will post up some pics if you like. i know i talk a lot of shit and am abrasive at times.

Akilldema - I am by no means a BB, but I have had some successes in the gym over the years. Try completely changing your chest workout for a while. If you do the typical 10 rep set, then try a 3-5 rep set or a 25-30 rep set.

Do super high intensity, as fast as possible without losing form. Do super low intensity, long and slow reps. I don't know what you currently do, but change it up. I would suggest a minimum of 30 days before you resume your normal workouts.

A workout that always kills me is 6 sets with the following reps: 1, 10, 1, 20 , 1, 30 (stolen from crossfit). Sore every time I do it. Just my uneducated 2 cents...

another pre-exhaust technique u can use is doing all of ur flye/isolation moves first making ur workout backward. so u start with cable crossovers or pec-deck flyes, then move to some time of dumbell flye movement, then a dumbell pressing movement, then a barbell pressing movement. im in the same boat with a lagging chest and superior tricep/shoulder development and it sucks.

ive used the technique ive described plus other ways. i def notice an increased pump while doing the compound exercises with decreased strength. i can admit that im still confused as to how frequently to use the technique, as wit any intensity technique (forced reps, negatives, drop sets, etc.) i like the workout when i do it but theres always that part of me thats worried bout overtraining. so have i actually noticed results solely from pre-exhaust? nope, cuz ive used other techniques as well and have never used pre-exhaust as my only intensity technique for chest for a long enough time (2-3 months) to fully attibute any gains to it. i guess i wud have to use it as my only workout booster for chest for a long time to be able to say "Ok, pre-exhaust is wat increased my chest size, shape and definition." but i do like the change of pace, especially doing the backwards program.

i press 3-4 times a week, is very possible to do without overtraining

I still hit every body part 3 times a week, although I lower to 2 when I am doing 5 or less reps. I see the most growth this way as long as I don't go to failure.

good question, likewise i would like to see my chest get bigger and stronger. i have to admit that i tend to warm up and then do reverse pyramiding, the opposite of pre-exhaust.

I am the exact same way. Ive had some shoulder and labrum issues so I need pretty extensive warmups(almost to the extent of a light workout)for a good shock try two of incline, flat, and decline smith machine 5 rep sets at 85-90% max....I just started this about 6 weeks ago and not only has my 1 rep max increased by 20lbs, but my chest is fuller
