Is heavy weight with low reps the best way to train chest? Or lighter weights with moderate to high reps? The simple yet somewhat convoluted answer: All of the above.
The chest workout below is designed to help you build pec size and strength simultaneously.
The heavy weight and weekly progression in the amount of weight used in the 5x5 portion of the training will add pounds to your bench, while the relatively high volume, rest-pause technique on dips, and stretching of the pecs on flyes will all work synergistically to add slabs of muscle to your chest.
