chesty mix voice

What I have to do to my mix voice sound more powerful and chest? I think that when I singing in mix it sound like other voice, more heady.
Have you got any exercises to sound more chesty?

    Mix voice is something that you have to work up to, especially if you want a chesty mix. First you have to stretch your chest voice up pretty high, like to a C5 or so. That can take a year or more, using the exercises in Ken's course.

    After that, you work your head voice, taking it as high as you can and also as low as you can, maintaining a bright, timbral tone. You build a large area of overlap that you can sing in both head voice and chest voice.

    After building up the strength and range of the head voice, you then fuse the two together through sliders and midvoice exercises.

    You have to first build the chest voice in order to have some chest to mix in at those high notes you want to sound chestier.
