Leg day? Killed it.
Arms and Abs? Done like a savage!
Back and shoulders? Slaughtered it yesterday!
What’s left? Chest day! Working out your chest is one of the most important aspects of building muscle. You could ignore your chest but you’ll look awkward when you have swole arms, a muscular back but an awkward, gainless chest. Walking into the gym to crush chest day is great but with so many exercises, you might feel overwhelmed. What are you going to do? Don’t worry, our team at Relentless Fitness is here to help. Our expert trainers have helped countless clients maximum their gains and get the most out of their workouts. We’ve put our heads together and devised the workouts you NEED to incorporate into every chest day.
Incline Dumbbell Flye
The perfect way to start building strength in your chest is with the classic incline dumbbell flye. This exercise is not optional as you begin your workout. It’s simple and straight to the point, so there’s no reason to skip it. To master this technique, all you need to do is:
Lie straight on an incline bench.
Firmly hold one weight in each hand with a slight bend in your elbows.
Position your hands above your head.
Slowly lower them until they are at your sides while keeping your arms extended.
Raise them back into the start position.
Your pecs will look like those of a God after incorporating this workout into your routine. Get started with it today!
Dips are the single best chest exercise you can do. No chest day is complete without incorporating them into your routine. In fact, it can hardly even be called chest day without including this exercise. If you want to crush dips, all you need to do is:
Firmly grasp bars and support yourself with your arms.
Place your arms wider than your shoulders and curl your legs into a “c.”
Lower yourself down while slowly leaning forward.
Push yourself back up until your arms are fully extended.
Repeat until the set is complete.
You will never have a better chest workout than with the dip. This workout is so effective since it relies completely on your chest strength and targets those muscles.
Machines are a great alternative to free weights, especially since they allow you to target specific muscle groups. If you are targeting the chest, your best choice is the pec-deck machine. It’s simple to use and offers the perfect pec workout. All you need to do is set your weight, sit down, and follow the machine's instructions. Feel the burn while shredding your sets like a beast. What sounds better than slamming those weights after pushing your limit on a set?
One of the most efficient and easiest chest workouts is the press up. Much like the push-up, it can be done anywhere. If you ever find yourself struggling to find time to reach the gym, all you need to do is drop to the floor and bang some sets out. If you want to execute this work out technique, do the following:
Get into a push-up position with your hands placed under your shoulders.
Brace your core so your entire body is straight.
Bend your elbows to lower your chest to the ground.
Push down to raise yourself up.
Repeat until set it complete.
Doing this simple exercise a few times a week is guaranteed to make your chest as hard as concrete. If you find yourself on the go during chest day, drop and do some press ups to make sure you are getting in those gains.
Chest day is one of the best days at the gym, so you want to make sure you are doing the most optimal exercises possible. Dips, press ups, using the pec-deck machine, and incline dumbbell flye are the staples of a proper pec workout.
