Stan McQuay’s 4-Week Chiseled Chest Workout Routine
Stan "the Man" McQuay has a powerful freaking chest. Sure, he's got huge pecs, but he's also got solid shape and density. If you're looking to build a chest so vast it makes your waist look small, you need to channel McQuay and do some heavy lifting.
His chest workouts aren't fancy -- there's no need for tricks -- they're just effective. Do them for the next four weeks and see what happens. When you've finished, just rinse, repeat and grow.

You're right because there's no way in hell that someone can actually push themselves and lift heavy weight for 12 reps ... I'm sure you're one of those gym "bros" that do your 3 set 8 rep max and never mix it up ...
if u know and understand the aspects of body building or weight training in general for that matter youd know that when he says 12 of heavy it means that the last few reps are assisted or forced
I just completed Kris Gethin 12-week daily trainer, it was a great 12 weeks but i was not able to stick to all aspects of the program, however I feel and look much better as the musclues start to take form. I want bigger chest and i'm about to start this program. question-how many times per week do I need to repeat the workout routine?
seems like a little overkill to me. This routine would probably work bettr for someone on a cycle but for the average natty lifter it seems like it would be overtraining imo. for me switching the routine weekly has been ineffective. i find it to be more affective to stick to a routine for a few months an switch it up when i start to plateau.
Want to try this out, however I am currently one of those guys that always do 4 exercises 3 sets of 6-8 reps for chest day, Doesn't 5 exercises with an extra set on each seem to be overkill? Even if it isn't failure I don't want to overtrain my already tiny chest.
