The Chest Workout. 1.) Dumbbell Bench Press. Dumbbell bench is great for other stabilizer muscles and you can safely get a better stretch on your pec.

Be sure to 2.) Incline Bench Press. 3.) Pec Deck and Incline Dumbbell Flye Superset. 4.) Dumbbell Bench Press with Neutral Grip.

5.) Dips. After each set of dumbbell press, get yourself under a barbell bench for a drop set until failure. These aren’t standard reps, however — perform two half reps for every full rep there until you. Give This Chest-Day Workout a Try Start with a 5 to 10 minute warm-up.

Use a light weight or resistance band to improve range of motion and increase blood flow, particularly in the shoulders. 1-3 sets, 1to 20 reps. For the workout, rest 60 to 90 seconds between sets. The chest workouts could be considered as the best if the lower and upper sections grew equally. Workout Routine For Chest Perfection: The following are the lists of the workout routine that will promise you with chest perfection: Barbell Bench Press.

On the last set of non-squat exercises, drop the weight by 30%. Perform the rep with normal tempo, but also perform slow negatives of 4-6 seconds. Train until failure on these slow negative sets. Do 1-3 Chest Exercises Per Workout Rather than doing every chest exercise in existence, stick with 1-3 chest exercises per workout.

More specifically, 1 exercise if you’re using a full body split, 2 exercises if you’re using an upper/lower split, and 2-3 exercises if you’re using a push/pull/legs split. Do 60-140 Total Reps For Chest Per Week. Negatives, drop sets, pyramids, giant sets, twenty-ones, partial reps, forced reps, and super are the techniques we will consider.

While there are tons of other bodyweight chest exercises out there, I personally believe that these 7 exercises need to be your foundation on which you add other exercises from other sources. Remember, don’t over do it! Ideally, you want to train your chest twice a week with a minimum of 48 hours of rest between each chest workout.

Sample routine using running the rack with alternating dumbbell curls: Set 1: Choose a weight you’d fail at 4-6 reps; Set 2: Reduce weight by 5 lbs. / 8-10 reps; Set 3: Reduce weight by 5 lbs. / 10-12 reps; Set 4: Reduce weight by 5 lbs. / 12-15 reps; Set 5: Reduce weight by 5-10 lbs. / 15-20 reps; Rules: 1 st set should be heaviest. No rest. If the eccentric (the part of the movement where you lower the weight on your chest press) is less than two seconds in duration, extend it to four. It will require focus to lower the weight this slowly, but the results will change the way you think about training.

You can do this type of negative-focused training all the time.

The third and fourth sets are your heaviest sets and include the drop sets.

If the volume is reduced to one to two sets per body part of one to five reps and the intensity increased to 85 to 100 percent of 1RM, there is medium risk with medium benefit.

On the other hand, adding another set increases volume significantly because you are adding several reps.

Keep in mind that the majority of trainees will feel most comfortable with this routine as it allows for a significant change in volumes and loads every 3 weeks.

As you continue to add volume, you will see less benefit from the added training volume.

  • When you do your heavy set, then half the weight and double the reps, do you alternate that? Or do you stick with double reps/half the weight after doing the 1 set of heavier weights? For instance, do you do A,B,A,B,A,B? Or A, B,B,B,B,B?
