    Can I get chest muscles as a quad

    I'm a c5/6 quad and work out daily and I want to work my chest, bit I'm not sure If I can or even have the chest muscle movement. I have no triceps so I'm not sure how to go about this if it's even possible

    I would say of course it's possible. Keep work'n them. At C6/7 I maybe a little different, but it took years to fill in between the skin and bones on my chest.

    The pectoralis major is innervated at C5-T1 with most of the innervation from C6, C7 & C8. So you likely have some innervation, but you should not expect to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime.
