Starting strength is wrong in this image.
% bodyweight is a horrible measure for strength standards. It underestimates for light people and over estimates for heavy people.
while I appreciate the academic way he's discussing this, in reality, trying to selectively grow the 'inner chest' is a really dumb idea. The concentration of muscle fibres is greater in the center than the outside, we can assume. But in practical terms, what this means is that you are best off just benching more, because when you add mass to the pecs it will eventually just fill in.
tl;dr don't worry about 'shaping' your muscles if you barely have muscles to begin with.

And as I said myself there, we have no real evidence that "targeting" those non-spanning muscle fibres affects overall hypertrophy or "muscle shape" in any way. We don't have evidence against it either, though. I was mostly explaining how they work from a neutral point of view.
That was taken from the Starting Strength book. You can give it a read if you need more info on those, it's an amazing book.
I might do a "simple how to" for those tho, taking a few pics from SS. But I'm kinda feeling lazy right now~~~ kek
Here's a fullbody program that includes a focus on the lowerbody and glutes for female trainees.
and as a tribute to wealthy piano...
here's a delicious homemade bulking snack. have tried it myself.
my only beef with this is that it encourages really dumb absolutism in the fitness community
also comments like 'do more incline cg bench because you have moobs' which drive me up the wall on CBTs
yes I realized my mistake later. I also tend to advocate full body with a glute focus rather than glute exclusively
