What is it with guys and having an impressive set of pecs? In fact, we get so hung up on building the muscles in our chest that many times we neglect other muscles that can make just as much of a statement. But let’s put the chest hatin’ aside and talk about some exercises you can do at home to get yourself massive, ripped pecs! This is the home chest workout every guy should know about.
We all know the run-of-the-mill standard push-up position. It does wonders, it really does, but there is a pretty awesome enhancement you can try that will make an impact on your pecs. Instead of leaving your arms at shoulder distance from one-another, spread them a little further to the sides. Don’t put them out too far, but just enough that when you start rising and dropping, you feel the burn on the exterior part of your chest; closest to your shoulders.
The first thing you’re going to need is a box, or a chair, or something that you can place your feet on. Next you’re going to get into default push-up position and with your legs straight and your toes resting downward on the box. This home chest workout exercise strengthens your upper chest muscles, giving your chest that buffed look we all want.
Very similar to the decline push-ups, except it’s the other way (who would have thought). Place your hands on the box and extend your body out with your feet on the ground. This home chest workout exercise strengthens your lower chest muscles, giving your chest that super chiseled look.
No Weights Home Chest Workout
There’s no denying that using weights in your workout has many benefits. But a major role in building healthy muscles without the risk of injury, comes from workouts that use the natural weight and strength of the body. While we’re all trying to become bigger and stronger, it’s important to remember that we should be taking care of our bodies. Try this 3-exercise routine for a powerful start to your first home chest workout.
