Jason’s Chest Workout – 1/28/2013

Incline Barbell Press 225 | TheMuscleProgram.comThis morning was chest and biceps but I want to focus this post on my chest workout. I didn’t have a lot of time this morning so I needed to wrap my chest workout up quickly. The reason I was running out of time was because the pre-workout supplement I’m taking has been killing my stomach! It’s the new formula of Universal’s Shock Therapy. I like Universal supplements but this stuff’s gotta go back! Anyway, without going into details, that’s why my time was cut short this morning. I’ll be picking up a different pre-workout supplement today.

This chest workout took about 25 minutes and let me tell you, I got an insane pec pump! And I only did three exercises. The weight wasn’t super heavy but heavy enough to stimulate the muscle. Although this was a quick chest workout, the volume and reps were plentiful.

Quick Insane Pec Pump Chest Workout

Incline Barbell Press: 5 sets x 10 reps

Bench Press: 5 sets x 12 reps (final set was a triple drop set)

Cable Crossovers: 100 reps total rest pause (about 20 seconds between each set)

Now there’s a couple of weight training techniques with this chest workout. The first exercise was a straight five sets of 10 reps but I didn’t go to failure on those. I kept the weight the same and reduced my rest period between sets, about 45 seconds to a minute. The bench press was actually done on a plate-loaded chest press machine. I got five sets of 12 reps but on that final set we did a triple drop to where we got about 12 reps, eight reps, eight reps, dropping a plate each set.

The final exercise, cable crossovers (or cable flyes as I don’t cross my arms when doing these), was intense and created that ultimate pump. Me and my friend (Big Shane) went back and forth until we hit 100 reps total. We picked a weight that we could do about 20 reps for the first set and stayed at that weight. The rest periods got shorter as the reps were less each set thereafter. We probably did a total of seven sets back and forth before we hit 100 total reps.

Try this chest workout if you’re short on time, or if you just want to do something different for chest.

Train with Passion,
