Developing a bigger chest is quite a challenging goal, but with the right [thirstylink linkid=”3650″ linktext=”muscle building program” class=”thirstylink” title=”muscle building program”] and well-guided practices and techniques, enhancing that targeted area is very much doable. As you read on, find tips on how to build chest muscles, with a number of specified workout routines to carry out to achieve the best form those pecs of yours could ever attain.
The main problem that most inexperienced bodybuilders have is caused by wrong state of mind, where they think doubling their efforts by bench pressing and doing cable crossovers nonstop will prove to them their desired fully-developed chest muscles can be done and fast. The fact is, all they just need to keep in mind are steady progression in weights and repetitions. Focusing on one of two basic motions in building chest muscles: pressing (while the other: flye), these high intensity lifting, including heavy barbell presses, dumbbell presses and wide-grip dips, are sure to increase the size of your chest further.
For example, the barbell bench presses (inclined, decline and/or flat) are ideal for the barbell press as it is a basic component of your routine. As for the decline dumbbell press, it allows for a more natural range of motion than the barbell bench press. When you do the incline press, weight is put on the upper chest region, whereas the decline focuses on the lower and outer regions of the chest muscles. At the same time, both regions are worked equally when doing the flat bench press.
I cannot begin to stress the importance of the standard barbell press as a basic component of your routine to build chest muscles, as well as further strengthen both of your arms. They allow for a more natural, less strenuous range of motion that helps prevent shoulder injuries
Finally, wide-grip dips are the perfect compound movement if you want to capitalize on the overall chest development and it’s hard that many people ignore this remarkable movement. You will need to transfer the stress from the triceps onto the pectorals by using a wider grip and leaning forward. If your own body weight is not enough, it’s easy to add resistance by using a weight belt.
Meanwhile, here are a few sample chest routines that you can try with all the lifts combined:
Flat Barbell Bench Press: 2 sets of 5 to 7 reps
Incline Dumbbell Press: 2 sets of 5 to 7 reps
Wide-Grip Dips: 2 sets of 5 to 7 reps
Chest Routine# 2
Incline Barbell Bench Press: 2 sets of 5 to 7 reps
Wide-Grip Dips: 2 sets of 5 to 7 reps
Flat Dumbbell Press: 2 sets of 5 to 7 reps
The target is to do 5-7 repetitions of a series of these three routines and, at the same time, increase the weight or reps as you log your progress and see the results week after week.
The above routines were samples taken from No Nonsense Muscle Building Program. Vince knows what he’s talking about, so I highly recommend you check him out.

Anyway back to the article. Most beginners in this type of exercise think that incessant lifting during the many trips to the gym are all part of the deal in order to have the most impressive chest ever-deemed possible. We discussed that presses: barbell bench presses, dumbbell press and the wide-grip dips are basic components of your routine. Bottom line: building those chest muscles is no easy task, but with proper discipline in following all the suggested practices and tips, and most especially, not overdoing these things everyday, a bigger and heftier chest will show you just how possible that is.
