What do you usually do after finishing the last rep of your chest workout? I think, you are happy that it is over, and you jump off the bench, don’t you?
But if you want to build a massive, great looking chest, then you may need to go one step further. A little bit of extra push can do magic. Pumping your pecs up with a few extra exercises will change the strength and the size of your chest for sure.
If you do the same workout routine over and over again, sooner or later the muscles get used to it. And as a result, they stop growing the way you like. To avoid that, it is recommended to use various chest exercises and techniques regularly.
How to do it?
The following video made by AthleanX will teach you. You will learn challenging methods and exercises that will push your pecs to the next level.
Let’s Recap What You Have Learned
There are two sorts of methods you can do: the bilateral and the unilateral.
The bilateral technique is more suitable for those who have been working out for a longer time so that they can control the moves better.
And the next finisher is recommended:
- DB Incline Bench Press x 10-12 RM to failure
- Dip Stretch (Stretch your pecs at the bottom of a dip with for 30 seconds)
- Inner Third Chest Crossovers x 20 reps to failure in inner 1/3 of motion.
In case, you cannot control your chest muscles correctly yet; the unilateral version is more suitable for you.
- DB Single-Arm Incline Bench Press x 10-12 RM to failure
- Rack Pec Stretch (Stretch pec major and pec minor for 30 seconds)
- Cavaliere Crossover x 20 reps to failure in inner 1/3 of motion.
Depending on which you choose, do each routine 3 times with as little rest as possible.
I have tried both versions, and they are a real killer. You will feel the burn in your chest for sure.
Also, you can combine the two methods. Do them on different chest days to get even better results.
Thank you for the great tips for AthleanX. You will see that this little bit of extra training to your chest will transform your pecs to the next level.
