Chest day…always fun!

One of my favorite poses, side chest!

One of my favorite poses, side chest!

Training chest has never been an issue for me.  I find that I am strong training chest and I really enjoy the “pump” I get from training chest.  Here are some of my favorite exercises:

Warm up:  push-up 2 sets x 12-20 reps

Incline DB or machine press 1 WU set, 4 sets x 8-10 reps

Flat bench DB or bench press 3 sets x 8-10 reps

DB fly incline bench 4 sets x 8-12 reps (drop sets, failure)

Cable fly superset with decline push-up 3 sets x 8-12 (drop sets, failure)

I always train with intensity but I don’t sacrifice form.  It is not always about the load, it is the intensity of the workout/exercise that is most important.

It is rare I follow the exact program every single time.  Change is always happening for me to avoid adaptation!  Plus, I love to challenge my body and create new exercises/programs to keep it interesting!  Drop sets, pre-exhaust, eccentrics, isolation vs. compound!  Try them all!

Train hard!  Train smart!  Don’t quit!
