Big, Ripped Chest

Big & Ripped Chest Workout

I don’t know anyone that doesn’t enjoy training chest. But I’m liking it even more now that my gym has bigger dumbbells. I’m not going so heavy to where my form suffers, but the mere 100 lb dumbbells just weren’t cutting it. We all are at different levels of strength but I at least need 120 – 140 lbs to get a good workout with dumbbell press. And as I stated in my last chest workout blog, dumbbell presses are back to being a staple in my chest training.

There was nothing special about this morning’s chest workout. I stuck with free weights for everything. I always feel better doing more free weights than machines. And for chest training, there’s no reason why you can’t stick with all free weights.

Along with my love for dumbbell presses I also feel that dumbbell pullovers are an extremely effective means of getting that ‘ripped chest’ look. I hit a few sets of these after dumbbell press because we were right there. Of course this meant I couldn’t go as heavy on my incline barbell presses but I was still able to push some decent weight and overload the muscle. I ended chest with some dumbbell flyes in the incline bench.

I usually train abs once or twice a week and will generally pick 2-3 exercises. My ab workouts are quick because I don’t rest long at all between sets. I go for the burn and get it done. Some feel like it’s useless to train abs because diet and cardio are more responsible for their visibility, not to mention you work your core when you’re training hard on everything else. But I can tell a difference when I’m training them a couple times a week as opposed to not at all. After that, it was cardio time.

Train with Passion,
