Tips To Make Any Pectoral Exercises Even Better

When you perform all of your pectoral exercises in a proper manner you will end up with a beautiful, fit and powerful physical appearance.

The problem, as a result of the many bad articles you see in most magazines, is that there is a misconception that you have both an upper chest and a separate lower chest muscle.

This is not actually true.

The chest muscle that works when doing any chest exercises is all one muscle, the pectoralis major.

But to properly stress your chest to the point that it will grow and develop you must use effective exercises for your chest muscles that work it from different angles.

That's one of the main keys to chest development.

Each different angle you use with general chest exercises & specific exercises for your pectoral muscles will tap into different motor units resulting in your pectoral weight lifting exercise being that much more effective.

You must consider all the variables that can help you to be successful when exercising your chest.

"Tips When Performing Pectoral Exercises"

  • Warm up properly by performing 5 - 10 minutes of light cardio followed by 2 sets of 10 - 12 reps of 40% of the weight you will be using for your chest exercises.

  • Learn proper lifting form and technique and use it on every single rep of every set on every pectoral weight lifting exercise.

  • Use a good variety of pectoral exercises. Don't continually do the same one or two in the same manner workout after workout.

  • Keep your abdominal region tight.

  • Keep your lower back pressed tight against the bench you are lying on.

  • When performing any pressing movement for your chest try to breath out as you push the bar upwards away from your body.

  • Use a spotter whenever possible.
