lose a bit of weight maybe? its not the muscle thats soft, it either skin or fat...if its skin, maybe increasing muscle in ur chest will fill it out a bit. if its fat, losing bf will get rid of it

ok well heres the deal, i lost about 75 pounds a couple years back, and only started dedicating myself to working out HARD and eating right about 6 weeks ago. when i lost all the weight i had copious amounts of excess skin..not so much now but would you think thats still the problem in my chest area?

its a strong probability..keep benchpressing and hopefully as your pecs get bigger, it will fill out the loose skin.

thats my guess anyways. and good friggin job losing all that weight man! its not easy. and welcome to SS, lotsa good advice and people here, stick around!

I'm not sure exactly what you may be referring to as far as your lower pec but a few things to note without trying to take the wind from your sails...

The lines coming from your sternum to your serratus anterior is your pec insertion and is genetic. You cannot change or manipulate this.

HOWEVER, overall growth will optically and physically make any gaps less pronounced.

Any sagging skin is just related to weight loss without enough allocated time for the skin to tighten back up so don't stress it too much.

You lost a lot of weight and have loose skin. Gain mass, it will get better over time.

My friends pecs look like that now. He used to have huge pointy fox eared tits. Its gotten so much better and should continue to tighten up with time.
