Chest training is extremely popular when it comes to bodybuilding. In reality, you most likely see lots more people bench pressing in the gym on a regular basis than every other exercise.
As the squat rack (where real males are made) sits alone, neglected, and gathering dust, there's often a wait for the bench getting in chest training.
I'm not really here to bash the flat bench press in any way.
The point is, if you are planning to work hard in your chest exercises, you could as well use a chest routine that actually works, right?
When individuals learn you weight train, they inevitably ask THE question, "how much would you bench?"
If you do not bench a lot you dread getting that question.
Let's fix by investing in some serious chest training tips so you can enhance your bench press numbers and then add serious muscles for your pecs.
Compared to today, the lifters of old could lift some amazing weights. They were seriously strong dudes.
Herman Goerner deadlifted 727 pounds with ONE HAND.
And this was before steroids.
The number of guys inside your gym make use of the deadlift within their routine?
The way you get seriously strong (and build serious muscles) is as simple as training the tendons and ligaments. And also you train them by moving big names for low reps.
The 5 x 5 method is a well used routine for building muscle and increasing strength.
When warming up you want to warm up the muscles for the household names however, you don't want to work way too hard or you'll ruin the work sets ahead and your chest training curriculum won't allow you to get the results you would like.
Let's make use of the the flat bench press as the chest exercise in this example. Let's imagine that you can do 200 pounds for 5 reps.
Perform 10 slow reps using the bar, followed by 95 x 5.
Then we come from in your 5 by 5 sets.
Hit 150 x 5. Rest a short while and then hit 185 by 5.
Even if you can simply acquire more than 5 reps, just do five.
Rest a couple of minutes then dive in your three "work" sets.
Hit 5 reps with 200 pounds. Although you may can do more reps, take a look at 5.
Rest several minutes before hitting the second sent.
Then do your third and final set and check out and get all 5 reps again.
If you can't complete 5 reps on all work sets, keep your weight exactly the same until you can or, whether it's far too heavy, even drop the body weight slightly for your next set.
If you do get a full 5 x 5 add 5 pounds for the bar for your next chest workout.
Put this chest training into your program for 4-6 weeks, hitting chest twice each week, provide it with everything you have got, get enough sleep and quality calories and you'll see your strength and muscle mass improve.
