For most people, Mondays are usually International Chest Day. The week is usually started off with a great chest workout, and hopes of a bigger, stronger bench! Well, I’m not ashamed to tell you that I celebrate International Chest Day every week! You are now going to see what I do to celebrate!
For ALL of my workouts, I do something called Giant Sets. It’s like a super-set, but two extra exercises are added. I usually choose four exercises and crank out ten reps each. I do four giant sets and work on core in between each set (this is my active resting period). Now that I’ve briefly told you what I do for ALL my workouts, here’s what I do for my chest:
My Four Exercises
- Flat Bench Dumbbell Press (10 reps)
- Incline Dumbbell Flyes (10 reps)
- Flat Bench Dumbbell Flyes (10 reps)
- Decline Dumbbell Flyes (10 reps)
Remember, all of the above exercises counts as ONE Giant Set! Go through this four times. Also, in between each Giant Set, make sure to do some “active resting.” Work on your core during this short period.
- Standing Side Bends with a plate or dumbbell (30-40 reps)
- Crunches (30-40 reps)
- Side Crunches (15-20 reps)
Always finish your workouts strong! I end my workout sessions with a little cardio, and so should you 🙂 AFTER I do 10 minutes on the elliptical, I do a set of 10 burpees, 10 jump squats, 10 body weight squats, then 75 push-ups! You don’t have to do exactly what I do, but just make sure to finish you workout strong!
