Thursday – Chest Day
As some of you know I just changed up my workout routine and I’m now focusing on just one body part per workout, hitting every muscle once a week. Whenever I go on this workout program I feel relieved. For one, I’m not training quite as long and don’t feel so rushed. Another benefit is I can focus more on the muscle I’m training.
Thursdays will be my chest day for a while as I’ll probably stay on this workout plan at least until the holidays. Usually during the holiday season I may take a day off here and there so I’ll double up on muscle groups in order to hit everything training 4 days a week instead of 5. Now let’s get to this morning’s big chest day workout!
Big Chest Workout
Bench Press: 2 sets x 10 reps, 2 sets x 6 reps
Incline Barbell Press: 2 sets x 12 reps, 2 sets x 6 reps
Hammer Strength Press: 4 sets x 20 reps
Pec Dec Flyes: 3 sets x 12 reps
Hammer Strength Incline Press (unilateral): 3 sets x 15 reps
I didn’t list the 2 warm up sets I did for bench press. And actually the first 2 working sets of 10 reps weren’t all-out sets. I was preparing for the 2 heavy sets. I used the same concept for incline barbell press. Once the heavy work was done I wanted to blast out some reps to pump more blood into the muscle and work the different muscle fibers. I hit some flyes followed by unilateral reps on the Hammer Strength Incline Press. For that last exercise, my reps were slower and more controlled, especially on the eccentric part of each rep.
I walked on the treadmill, on a slight incline for 30 minutes after my chest workout. I just started walking again as opposed to the recumbent bike. I feel walking is better for me but I’ll switch it up from time to time. Oh, and stay tuned for my new supplement stack for September. I’ll be posting that soon.
Train with Passion,
