Why do a chest workout?
A regular chest workout doesn’t just make your upper body look good in your T – shirts.
Both men and women should be working out their chest muscles!!
The stronger your pecs the stronger your whole body. They are involved in so many upper body movements that a weak chest can make you weaker in many other movements too.
They are also some of the biggest muscles in the body. Therefore working them out burns a ton of calories!
They are also vital for good posture
Tight chest muscles can give that slouched, shoulders forward look. Therefore working the chest muscles in a full range of motion – stretching and contracting them can assist in improving your posture.
So how do you structure a chest workout?
It is important you hit the pecs from all different angles and with a full range of motion.
Here is a sample chest workout powered by the Robofit app which will hit your muscles hard.
Perform each exercise for 3 sets of 12 repetitions
Take 60 seconds rest in between sets and exercises.
You should be using a weight that you struggle with the last few reps on the final set.
If you complete all 36 reps over the 3 sets put the weight up the next time you do it
