How to Perform the Workout

You’ll build the foundation of a larger chest by performing the initial three exercises for your chest every day for one fortnight. Make sure to take at least one day off between exercises. Do the exercise three times, allowing for a minimum of an hour between sets. The goal is to do 10-15 reps, however, if this is beyond your capabilities on the chest, try your best.

After you’ve completed two weeks of these three exercises, you can proceed to exercises four five, six, and seven. Do these exercises two times every week for the next four weeks. Do the exercises in four rounds and then rest for up at most two minutes after each exercise. Remember, you should aim for 10 to 15 reps for each set, or as many as you can.

Following four weeks of intense training, you’ll have built muscles with a base endurance (weeks 1 and 2) and increased strength. The final part of the program will help you develop acceleration and speed that can give you an advantage in any sport which requires your upper body. It also gives you the definition and size which will make people realize that you’ve been doing your best to strengthen the chest area. It’s not an easy task however. It’s now time to complete the same exercises that you did in the second phase (weeks three through six) However, you’ll be doing it in the form of a circuit, performing one exercise after another without stopping between. Make sure you do 10 repetitions for each workout. This is an entire set. Take a break for one to two minutes, and then repeat for the set of 4 sets. The ability to collapse is not required. Repeat this every two weeks and allow three days between sessions. It’s essential.
