Chest Workouts For Men



One of the most popular muscle groups to work out is the chest. We’ll jump right in to discussing the exercises that Daily Spot uses to build great chest workouts for men. One tip to keep in mind when doing any chest workout is that you can easily let your shoulders help do some of the work. Don't. Do not use your shoulders. This is how you injure yourself. Focus on isolating your chest.

Dumbbells and Barbells

Make the most out of your chest workouts by incorporating both dumbbell exercises and barbell exercises. While you’ll be doing similar motions, these are NOT the exact same workouts. The general rule is that you’ll be able to rep more weight with a barbell than dumbbells, primarily because the dumbbells involve a bit more stability. Daily Spot recommends Grant’s Body Series: Chest as a great chest workout for men. Grant uses a combination of dumbbells, barbells, cables, incline, flat, and decline to make sure each part of your chest is thoroughly worked during every session.

Good Chest Routines for the Gym

In the movie Remember the Titans, there’s a scene where you discover the Titan’s playbook is only 6 plays. Let’s replace football plays with chest exercises, and with only 3 types of exercises, you’re now able to create an infinite amount of chest workouts. Chest workouts technically pull from some variation of push-ups, bench pressing, and flies. When doing your chest workouts, keep things fresh by making use of high-reps (definition), low-reps (strength), and then incline and decline to hit different areas. You can google more chest workouts for men, or you can try Grant’s workout on Daily Spot. Daily Spot offers a new routine every single day. Start working-out your chest TODAY.


Chest Workouts For Women

We’ll address the elephant in the room right away. The first questions we normally get when recommending chest workouts for women are ‘will this make my boobs look smaller?’ or ‘will this turn my boobs to muscle?’ No, no, no and to any other variation of this question that suggests that chest workouts for women will have a negative impact on your breasts, the answer is NO! Actually, these workouts are one of the only ways outside of gaining fat or having surgery that can make the breasts appear [slightly] larger. Couple that with the fact that building muscle will help perk-up the chest, and chest workouts go from being an after-thought to a necessity.


Chest Workouts at Home

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.
