Having a well-built chest is a sign of power and prestige for most men. It helps you look better in a t-shirt, and at the beach in the summer.
And that includes women as well. Many stay away from from chest exercises because they fear it will shrink their breasts. However, that’s not true.
Aside from the looks, having a strong chest can help prevent against shoulder and rotator cuff injuries later in life.
So if you’re looking to add size and definition to your chest, then keep reading to find out the 3 best exercises to build a bigger chest.
1. Dumbbell Squeeze Press:
This exercise creates maximum tension and lengthens time under tension to a painful and skin-splitting degree. It is quite easy for you to execute. All you have to do is to lie on a bench, hold two dumbbells in your hands, and squeeze the “bell” parts against each other and you press up. If you’ve never done this before, you’ll be insanely sore the next day. P.S. Use about half the weight you normally use for normal DB Bench.
2. Incline Barbell Bench Press:
The incline bench targets the upper chest mostly, while normal bench targets both the upper pec and lower pec. The upper pec is what gives your chest that masculine, plate of armor look. Focus on going heavy here, by keeping the reps between 5-8.
3. Cable Crossovers:
This is a stretch-based exercise. The main benefit of using the cables is that your time under tension increases because there is constant resistance. This will give your chest a wider, fuller look. This is a bodybuilding exercise so use high reps (10+) with 30 second rest times.
Add these into your next Chest Day.
