Are you talking about the Morris 89 Licensed piece? Or a custom job? Or something else?

Others can jump in here who are more experienced than I, but it may be an old pull from the molds. If that's the case, I don't think there's anything you can do for it. Ed might be the guy to contact on this. Best I remember he had a tutorial about working on the Clooney piece o' junk to at least make it presentable.

Sure Batavias. Buy some 3/8"-thick urethane padding from a well stocked hardware store, and use tracing paper to trace inside muscle segments. Then cut the tracing paper segments and re-trace onto the padding; cut the padding up and glue the segments on the inside with clear aquarium sealant (it's non toxic). After curing, you can then even tape over the segments with black duct tape, to make everything more solid on the inside if you want. Either way, this will fix the collapsing sections, creating a buffed out chest piece in pecs and abs, maximizing the look and power of the commercial product. Just one caution: be sure to apply and distribute the right pressure when gluing-in the pectoral segments, to avoid latex wrinkling.

This Rubies chest piece was padded as described above:
