Many bodybuilders are constantly searching for ways to increase their chest size.
There are methods for increasing chest size and muscle definition that are proven to be consistently more effective than others. Continue reading to discover how.
When it comes to bench pressing, you should focus more on flat presses, incline presses, and decline presses.
A flat press is when you lie on a bench and use dumbbells.
Start with the dumbbells on each hand on your thighs. Use your thighs to lift them up at the width of your shoulders. Then, rotate the wrists forward. Slowly bring down the dumbbells to your side while breathing and staying in control.
Breathe out and push them up towards your pecs. Then, repeat for the planned number of repetitions. This exercise works your entire chest.
An incline press is when you have the bench at a slight incline (about 45%), and perform your standard bench presses.
This exercise mostly works your upper pectoral muscles.
A decline press is when you have the bench at a slight decline (again about 45%) and perform your standard bench presses.
This exercise works your lower pectoral muscles and the back of your arms.
Include both of these exercises, as well as the flat press, and you should experience a bigger chest soon.
Although doing the right exercises is important, it’s vital that you are using correct form.
When doing bench presses, make sure that you carefully bring down the bar.
Do not simply bang it against your chest to get more momentum because you won’t be working your chest as hard. Proper form also ensures you don’t injure yourself.
“Do not forget one vital rule: always breathe!
Make sure that your workout intensity is high enough. You should be increasing the weight after a certain period of time. Do not just do the same workout with the same weight and reps every single workout. Your results will eventually plateau.
Finally, it is important that you consume the right foods and supplements.
Make sure you get enough protein in your diet. Consume at least one gram of protein for each pound you weigh.
Serious bodybuilders may need to consume 1.5 or even 2 grams of protein for each pound. Don’t forget the “golden hour”, which is the hour after you work out when your body is in dire need of protein and carbohydrates.
You should also take your supplements if you have a slow metabolism. All this ensures you develop the chest of your dreams.
By utilizing these tips, you should experience that bigger, manlier chest in no time. Just remember to stay dedicated and do not give up on your goals.
