Power bodybuilding Chest workout
Watch The Video - 7:04
This is one example of a Power Bodybuilding workout. Your weights and reps will change depending on where you are in the 12-week program.
Follow that program to the letter, and you too will end up with a big S stamped across your chest.
I don't go 10-to-12 reps like a lot of people do. Here's my little trick: I do low reps but a lot of sets. I like the poundage. I'm partial to free weights, but even with machines, I'll just go heavy for 5-to-6 reps, even when I'm preparing for a bodybuilding show. I let diet do the rest.
When I go light, I fade away. Supermen don't fade away. I'm a natural bodybuilder, always have been. Keep the weights heavy if you're a natural bodybuilder and want to build that extra size.
I start my chest workouts with incline presses to target upper chest. I go heavy - of course - but don't arch much. I bring it down in a nice, controlled motion. But the upstroke is an explosion.
I rest 3-to-5 minutes between sets. This may seem like a lot but I want to recover completely when I'm training for power and strength. The body needs it. Despite such long breaks, the pump remains. Credit - or blame - the poundage. It's tearing down the chest; the fibers are just getting torn up right now, in a good way.
To sum up, go heavy, heavy, heavy. You're going to love having that extra strength.
Don't be me. Be better than me.
