Simple-But-Effective Chest Workout by ZFDGYRU

The title says it all. This is simple, this is effective, this is the essence of chest training. Lift your body, incorporate barbells and dumbbells, and squeeze the contractions. This workout calls for you to adjust the angle on the incline press after every two sets. Those changing angles will test your chest from every possible pressing position.

Just-Try-It Chest Routine by Rugbywilson

This four-week program will annihilate every muscle fiber in your chest. The first week hits flat, incline, and decline presses, but each of the next three weeks focuses on a specific angle. The secret here is in the intensity. You only do 4 reps per set, but the workout calls for you to continue adding weight to those sets until you can't go any longer!


Cable fly

Any man with enough courage to put his all into this will move a lot of weight. Rugbywilson suggests a pre-workout supplement and plenty of protein to recover from this chest torture.

Week 1: Chest
Week 2: Flat Chest
Week 3: Incline Chest
Week 4: Decline Chest
