The late, great fitness icon Greg Plitt didn't mess around when it came to training his chest. He pushed every muscle fiber to its limit in the morning. And then, in the evening, he did it again. In fact, every workout in his iconic four-week MFT-28 Military Fitness Training Plan is split into "Morning Mass" and a second, evening workout.

Is this an everyday, all-the-time approach? Not for most people. But, if you've got the time today, try this two-headed monster, straight from day one of MFT-28. This is how Greg's coveted chest was built. It will hurt for days afterward, but it'll be worth it.



Chest Dominance Morning Workout

Smith Machine Push-Up Ladder
Begin this five-position exercise on the ground inside the Smith machine, with the bar racked at the top of the cage. Perform 8-12 wide push-ups, then hook the bar on the lowest rung of the Smith machine. Grip the bar and perform 8-12 incline push-ups. Raise the bar to the next rung, use a slightly narrower grip, and perform 8-12 medium-grip incline push-ups. Continue raising the bar and performing the prescribed exercises. The entire series counts as one set.
