    I've been doing dumbbell flys and chest presses, I feel the strain/effect in my arms, obviously, but I don't feel anything on my actual chest. Is this right? Should the chest/pecs feel any sort of strain or effect once you've done the lifts?

    By the way, is a the dumbbel flys/chest presses enough to develop pecs?

    Pull your shoulder blades back. When you do flies you should see/feel your pecs contracting/bouncing. Focus on pulling with your pecs by thinking of them squeezing together not moving it together with shoulders.

    Widen your grip on BB bench press, and as Flux says pull your shoulder blades in when lowering helps to make the press really effective, If still struggling then add in another exercise, try incline DB/BB press aswell, or Dips maybe..

    Good Luck

    Add in some incline and decline bench press. Should do the trick.
