An Effective Workout To Chisel Your Pecs Using Simple Chest Development Exercises

Every other guy out there is always looking for the best chest workout that will chisel the pecs but often they find it hard to find the most effective chest development exercises.  Although the popular approach is using standard bench presses, incline presses and cable crossover; there are different ways of getting quicker results.

You are probably tired of seeing the same cookie cutter chest workouts that get you decent results but fail to get you where you want to be.  In order to see quick results you have to try different yet simple chest development exercises.

The key in any workout program is to workout a muscle group from various angles.  In the case of the chest you should do exercises that will stimulate the upper, middle and lower chest.  A second component that is important is challenging your muscles with different exercises.

If you are not afraid to experiment and want a highly effective workout then try the following routine:

  • Decline Bench Presses- use either dumbbells or a barbell with a decline bench
  • Dips- use a dip bar and while lowering your body keep your chin tucked in and touching your upper chest.  Tucking your chin will allow more of a stretch in the chest.  To avoid injury make sure your elbows make a 90-degree angle and your upper arms are parallel to the floor.  Do not go lower than this or it may injure your shoulders.
  • Flat Bench Presses- Perform with dumbbells or a barbell
  • Incline Bench Presses- use dumbbells or barbell and set the incline bench at 30 to 45 degrees
  • Cable Crossover with Push Ups- Rather than performing cable crossovers while standing do them on your knees.  On the 10th repetition hold the two handles together and feel the squeeze in your pecs.  Hold for 10 seconds then move in to a push up position and try to do as many push-ups as possible.  The handles will be in each hand during the push-ups.  Perform these with lightweight as it is challenging.

Perform 3 to 4 sets of 8 to 10 repetitions per set.  For the cable crossovers do 10 repetitions and as many push ups.

This kind of workout is very effective and will definitely help you chisel your pecs.  Although I often see guys avoiding lower chest development exercises you will find that these exercises line decline press and dips are great in developing the chest muscles.

Ever Wondered How To Get Big Muscular Pecs?

Ever wondered how to get big muscular pecs and you are looking for the best way to achieve it?  Perhaps you have tried different methods but you have achieved less than expected results.

As we all know very well, us guys aspire to have a well-developed chest in order to show off our results from spending time at the gym.  Perhaps you have spent day after day hitting the weights, doing endless number of sets and repetitions trying to get results but nothing happens.

The first question most people have is, “how many sets should I do?”  Ideally you want to stay within a range of 3-4 sets.  Each set should be of 8 to 10 repetitions being performed in a slow and controlled motion.  Form is key when lifting weights so it is important not to cheat when doing weights.

A second question people have is, “what exercises should I perform for chest workouts?”

As with any body part you have to work the muscle from each angle.  It is important to remember that the chest consists of multiple muscles and therefore you need to do more than just bench presses.

The chest should be targeted in the following areas: middle chest, upper chest, lower chest and the inner chest.

To maximize your results and get a big chest it is best to use free weights like dumbbells or barbell exercises.

Here are four exercises that will see you making big gains.

  • Decline chest press:  Although some people like to perform this exercise last in the series I would advise that it is performed first in the sequence.  This exercise targets the lower chest primarily but it works more fibers than a flat bench press.
  • Flat bench press:  this is the most popular bench exercise of all.  Use a flat bench and perform it using dumbbells or barbells.
  • Incline bench press:  this exercise targets the upper chest and should be performed using a bench at an angle between 30 degrees and 45 degrees.  An angle above 45 degrees will target the shoulders and less than 30 degrees will target the middle chest more.

Decline dumbbell or decline cable fly’s:  it is very rare to see anyone perform either one of these exercises at the gym but they will give you great results.  These exercises target the lower chest more but work more chest muscle fibers than a typical chest fly.
