    Push up

    When I do push up. My chest got pump up only on the left side but I see no pump on the right. I'm worried that my chest will grow only on the left side. Can I grow my right chest?
    Push up is my only exercise because I don't feel my chest when I do bench press. I did one arm push up too but my right chest got no pump. What should I do. Anyone have this problem please let me know

    You could be leaning over towards your stronger side which has developed a stronger mind to muscle connection (similar to which side you hold a pen with) and as you approach the final set you may find your stronger side instinctively taking over to complete the set without realizing it. The trick is to concentrate on your weaker side when it is needed most (towards the end of the set) and build up a stronger mind connection to that side and not let your body lean over or twist automatically towards your stronger side which wants to do all the work as it has a stronger mind connection established already on that side. Ideally you want perfect balance and control with emphasis on both sides so that your muscles will support each other and grow larger together. My right side was much weaker as I am left handed, and I originally fixed the imbalance by doing isolation exercises with some sessions entirely focused on training my weaker side e.g. cable flyes. Once I had established a strong enough connection I carried on with my normal workout plan and both sides are adapting and getting stronger together. It is quite common to see bodybuilders with one group of muscles slightly larger than the other. Bodybuilding is a fine art. It takes great effort and dedication to achieve perfection.

    Bench press will hit the chest much more when additional weight is added. When doing push-ups you are lifting 64 percent of your body weight. I weigh 180 pounds, and when I do push-ups I am lifting about 115 pounds of my weight. That would mean I would need to bench over 100 pounds to make it more effective than push-ups. If you are benching less than 64 percent of your body weight then you will find it is not as effective as push-ups. To make them more challenging you could wear a weighted belt and try weighted push-ups and dips.
