Are you looking for the best ways to build a bigger chest but unsure how to really go about it?
Do you want a more ripped, muscular body or even a massive chest?
These are some of the questions you will need to answer before you start looking at chest workouts, the type of exercise and the way in which you perform them can drastically effect your results.
For the type of exercise to include in your program you might want to think about the chest as upper,lower,inner and outer chest areas. Once you get some basic knowledge you might want to go into more specifics such as the individual muscles but for now we’ll just look at these zones.
For the upper chest area, inclined and overhead flies are a good exercise, flat bench presses are also good. The exercises for the lower chest are similar but would be declined flies and bench presses. Dumbbell flies also help work the inner and outer areas so are a good all round exercise, you should also look to include dumbbell crossovers to work the inner chest.
There are many other exercises that should be included in your chest workouts but the bench press and dumbbell flies are two of the most important to start with, but you will want to include other exercises and variations.
During your exercises you should move steadily and try to reduce any jerking and swinging movement, this applies to the postive and negative moves such as both up and down during a bench press. Keeping resistance on in the negative phase will give more effectiveness to your workout.
How many sets and reps and how many days a week to exercise need to be thought about as well.
Usually, with the right diet and nutrion, three days per week with at least one day in between will give good results, as it allows time for the muscles to repair and grow.
This is really just the start, the best way to build a bigger chest is as part of a full workout system, this will give the quickest results.
Many will be full body exercise programs with diet and nutrition information to help you get balanced results.
