The best chest workouts at home will be ones that hit the upper-chest and mid-chest like you would with weights at the gym. Only this time, you’ll be using bodyweight exercises. If you came here looking for a completely new movement to do with your chest that will give you a much more targeted and better workout than push-ups, well, you’re in the wrong place. In fact, if you ever find that, you’re probably still in the wrong place. The best chest workouts at home will be comprised of one of the most renowned bodyweight exercises there is: the push-up.
Variations of the Push-up
In a few of the chest workout sections we’ve talked about the benefits you can get from hitting the upper and mid chest. This is a great way to ensure balanced development of your chest muscles. Unlike a few of the other body parts, it’s a bit easier to work your entire chest at home. The key is to take advantage of inclines and declines. With merely a chair, table, or anything that provides elevation, you’ll be able to do variations of the push-up that work each area of the chest. For example, try this for a chest exercise: 3x20 push-ups, 3x20 incline push-ups, 3x20 decline push-ups. This is a very simple example of a chest workout you can do at home.
