Regardless, the upper part of the chest (particularly the clavicular head of the pectoralis major) is a difficult area to develop through the usual chest exercises, such as bench presses and dips. Even incline presses, the popular choice for upper chest development, don’t do the trick for many people.
If you consider the structure and action of this muscle (shown beautifully in the image above), it’s clear that an ideal exercise for development in this area is a “low-to-high” (or LTH) cable flye. Wait a minute–am I saying dips and presses aren’t enough? Say it ain’t so!!! If you like a little “bodybuilding” (gasp!) mixed in with your training for sports, consider this muscle and the LTH flye.
