A chest workout is an exercise routine that targets the chest muscles. Chest workouts usually involve at least one device to help you target chest muscles. Some chest workouts also involve a person assisting by putting weights into position. Chest workouts are often done in the form of presses, flys, and/or pushups. Some chest workouts vary from person-to-person depending on their goals and preferences for targeting specific muscle groups, but for the most part, even people who want sculpted pecs need to do different types of chest exercises if they want to see visible results post six weeks or less.

One of the first chest workouts you may have come across is the bench press. The bench press is a great exercise for chest development, but don’t be fooled – it’s not the only one. If you’re looking to build a powerful chest that looks good from all angles, you’ll need to include several other exercises in your routine.

The following chest workout will help you build a powerful chest that looks great from all angles.

Bench Press:

Lie flat on your back on a bench with your feet flat on the ground and shoulder-width apart. Hold a weight in each hand with your arms fully extended and your palms facing away from you. Bend your elbows and slowly lower the weights towards your chest. Pause when your chest is level with the top of your thighs, and then press the weights back to the starting position.

Incline Bench Press:
