Chest Training Workouts and Tips!
Chest training is more about precision than just moving big weights. Much like shoulders to much emphasis on poundage when training chest almost always leads to aches, pain, discomfort, and even career ending muscle tears. So use weights that can be felt in the target area and not some auxiliatory muscle. Even when power training weights should be calculated and targeted for just those reasons. What we have listed below are some of the absolute complete chest development for power or sheer muscle size. These training workouts there are some of the very best bar none!
Top Chest Training Tips:
- Move From Top to Bottom: Remember your NOT a powerlifter, so when you have progressed from the intermediate stage of training after 18 moths of dedicated lifting flat bench presses should be moved off the top of your list. Starting with a variation of incline presses as you main exercise emphasizes balance in chest development. You should be working your chest: Top, Middle, Bottom. Example: Incline Presses, Bench Presses, Dips.
- Slow it Down: When working your chest for quality growth you should be slow down the reps and feeling your pecs stretch and contract at opposite ends of the movements. KILL the momentum BS!
- Prioritize the Weak: Another reason we prioritize the upper chest is that it is almost always the weakest part of the chest development. Attack your weak area when your the freshest!
- Watch the Volume: Your chest is a good size muscle to train, but it is not your glutes, or thighs so performing 16 sets of chest isn't gonna stimulate any additional growth! Performing marathon training sessions open your body up for injury, and the last thing your want is a torn pectoral muscle!
- The Stretch is Key: The key to building a wide thick chest is the stretch you achieve during the performance of each exercise. A good controlled stetch in all your exercises followed by a strong contraction at the top or beginning will recruit more muscle growth than just moving more weight from point A to point B.
