Well you benefit from working every muscle. The more lean muscle you have, the more calories you burn at rest and the more fit and balanced you’ll be. However, speaking of balance, you want your muscles to be balanced and when it comes to the pectorals, most people aren’t balanced. They have a weak back and tight pecs from sitting down at a desk and bending over too much. If while sitting on the couch or at the dinner table or even at your desk and you find yourself sitting like the first picture in the diagram, then you probably have tight pecs, tight hip flexors, a weak back and a weak core.
So yes, you should work every muscle, to be fit all around, but the majority of people have tight pectorals. But there’s another catch, this posture that most people suffer from is more a matter of a weak back and weak core. So I would focus more on that than worrying about your pecs.
And just because I get this comment every time I answer a question like this…. I have heard from many people in the fitblr community that if you’re female, strengthening your pecs will perk up your breasts. However, I have not come across any research that supports this.

Hello there love.
Have you considered a therapist? In high school I felt exactly the same way. I was lethargic, depressed, I felt like I was spiraling and there was nothing left to save me from this bottomless pit. I tried talking to my family and they just told me to snap out of it. My friends weren’t too much of a help, plus I felt like all I did was bother them. I’d go home, lock myself in my room and just be depressed and had very negative thoughts about myself and life in general. If this sounds like what you’re going through I would definitely look into some therapy. My therapist was my savior. You will get your binging under control if you get what’s triggering it under control. If you don’t take care of how you’re feeling, you will always turn to comfort food. Please consider a therapist. I can’t tell you enough how she helped me, now someone can help you come out of this darkness.
Your results are going to be slow after an eating disorder. That’s what it does, lowers your metabolism in an attempt to save any calorie it can. It will take a while, but it will eventually happen. Personally I don’t trust any type of pill. Diet pills are created to suppress your appetite and help you not eat so much, which in turn also decreases your metabolism. When you stop taking them, you start eating a lot more because your hunger is back to normal. You don’t want to screw up your hormones (the one that tells you you’re hungry) and metabolism even more to take a diet pill. Now, I’ve never done research on metabolism boosters but I have a feeling that they’re not much better.
I know it’s hard, love, but you want to get back to healthy, do it the healthy way. Don’t screw with your body even more by popping pills. Eat right and exercise and your body will take care of itself <3
They just works your arms differently. Elbows wide puts more emphasis on your pectoral muscles and elbows in works your triceps more. Now don’t get me wrong, they both work all the muscle in the upper body, it’s just a greater emphasis on different muscles. That’s all, lovely <3
I can’t exactly tell you eat this for breakfast and this for lunch and so one and so forth. Check out my FAQ for servings and stuff like that but I can’t give you a nutrition plan. That takes a lot of time and effort and I’m sorry but I just don’t have the time :/
What I can tell you is if you’re working out (which everyone should be no matter what your goals), carbs before a workout (fruits and veggies mostly) and carbs with protein afterwards (fruits/veggies and a protein like peanut butter, cheese, etc)
