Killer Chest Workout Routine!

This workout has been specifically designed to build more muscle mass in your chest.  The four chest exercises you will be performing are the barbell bench press, incline dumbell bench press, the dumbell pullover and the incline dumbbell flys.  This chest routine will stimulate your chest from as many angles as possible to incite hypertrophy.

DON’T FORGET TO WARM UP

Before partaking in any intense workout you should always spend a few minutes warming up to get your heart rate up and the blood circulating to your muscles.  Immediately delving into an intense workout without having sufficiently warmed up can result in injury.  5 – 10 minutes of walking, jogging, jumping jacks or skipping is more than sufficient.

COOL DOWN PHASE

At the end of the workout 5 – 10 minutes of cooling down is important to prevent blood pooling and allow your heart rate to return to pre workout levels.  This can be achieved through static stretching of targetted muscles while focussing on your breathing.

TIPS

* You are allowed 30 – 90 seconds break between sets.

* Ensure that you perfect your technique before graduating to a heavier weight.  By concentrating on intensity with a lighter weight you will be much more effective at stimulating muscle fibers resulting in more muscle growth.  You can achieve maximum intensity by performing the exercises in slow and controlled movements.
