How can i workout to gain chest muscles (pecs)?

I am already skinny to the point to where it was easy to get a six pack but i have never found the right workout to really effectively gain pecs. All i have at my house is a pull-up bar but i have a pass to the local gym. I would rather find a workout that i can do at my house but any workout to gain chest muscles would be helpful.

    The old push up is great for pecs. .

    It does the pecs, shoulder, upper arms, lats, and abs. to a minor extent the legs.

    Hardly any exercise does only 1 muscle group

    Go to the gym, and do:

    Chest Fly

    Chest Press

    Bench Press

    Chest Dips

    At home, you could get a backpack full of heavy stuff and do:

    Push Ups

    Diamond Push Ups

    Chest Dips

    Wide Push Ups

    If you go to youtube and search this up I'm sure you will find many helpful things. If may also be that you are not eating well enough. Eat a health diet but exercise daily. After you exercise do not eat right away.

    Use barbell and dumbbells to get a good chest workout.

    here's a sample chest workout:

    Dumbbell flat 3x12

    Dumbbell incline 3x10

    Flat fly 3x10

    You can do less reps too if you want.

    Decline barbell press 3x10

    Incline fly 3x12

    Pushups.If done right and on a regular basis,it works.Everything else works also,but this is whenever you get a chance.I do them at work at times and at home always.I'm 53 and in great shape.

    Dips might help, all you'll need is a table and a chair.

    push ups

    EDIT: and when you do do push ups, go all the way down and up slowly.
