Chest muscle building exercises are very important to building a good physique. They certainly require some accurate movements, skills, continuous efforts, motivations, and dedications. There are six exclusive and very effective exercises for quickly building up your chest muscles.
1. Bench Press
The bench press is known as the upper body exercise. It works greatly on the entire upper body including pectorals, deltoids, and triceps. During the bench press workout routine you should work towards fatiguing the latissimus dorsi muscles, biceps, and forearms. The methodology of doing bench press exercises is quite simple. Although,, you have to be careful during the bench pressing exercise. For example, you should not let your upper arms go up directly to the sides; because it can cause injury to the shoulder muscles. You can do bench presses using either dumbbells and barbells.
2. Incline and decline Bench Press
Both of these exercises are quite similar to the regular bench press. Both incline and decline bench press exercises work greatly on your muscle groups such as pectorals, deltoids, and triceps. The incline bench press focuses on the upper part of your chest. On the other hand, the decline bench press works greatly on the lower part of your chest. You can use both barbells as well as dumbbells for these exercises also.
This sort of exercise works on the entire chest area, but it mainly focuses on the lower chest. The dips work quite well on the deltoids and triceps. Self-support and control between the bars becomes absolutely crucial during the dips. Dips are considered an advanced exercise.
4. Dumbbell Flyes
This exercise works on the entire area of your chest, but you can target a particular area of your chest during the dumbbell flyes exercise. For instance, a smooth bench will isolate the entire chest while an incline bench will isolate the muscles of the upper chest. Finally a decline bench will isolate the muscles of the lower chest. Do not overstress the stretch at the base of the rep because you could damage your shoulder muscles.
5. Pec Deck Flyes
The pec deck flyes separates the whole pectoral composite. Right after sitting in the pec deck machine you have to grab the handles of the machine quite strongly and keep a little bend in your elbows. Afterwards, let the weight of the machine drag your arms back in order to spread out your chest. Hold on to this position for a couple of seconds. Then, gradually let your elbows return back toward the starting position. Repeat this exercise with full motivation and dedication in the desired reps.
6. Push Ups
This is the most fundamental exercise for chest muscle building. Only a minor sort of stress is applied on the shoulders and triceps. This is an excellent exercise for limbering up your chest muscles before using weights in your muscle building exercises.
