Hey guys,

I've recently started the Strong Lifts 5x5 program after some time off from lifting weights.

My problem is this: my pecs naturally stick out from my chest (due to my natural masculature) more than majority of people and they respond (grow) the most compared to my other muscles to weight training.

Plain and simply; they just look f**kin stupid! too big for my current body!

So I'm wondering what I can swap the Bench Press (my chest workout exercise) with until I get the rest of my body aligned with their size?

The bench obviously hits more than just the chest muscles... it also hits shoulders and triceps too.

Any ideas?

Here is the Strong Lifts workout plan if you don't know it:

Workout A:
Squat 5x5
Bench Press 5x5
Barbell Rows 5x5

Workout B:
Squat 5x5
Overheard Press 5x5
Deadlift 1x5
