Robert Irvine's Fit Fuel Chest Day
Duration 60 min
Equipment Yes

M&F contributor Robert Irvine, star of Food Network’s Restaurant: Impossible, is easily the fittest chef in the world. In his new book, Fit Fuel, he shares motivation, training, and a ton of restaurant-quality healthy recipes. The following excerpt offers a look into one of his workout routines.

Note: The training section of Fit Fuel contains a five-day body-part split, plus a beginner's split, time-saving workouts, and HIIT sessions.  The workout shown below is Day 1, Chest.  

QUICK TIP: When done properly, the bench press is a total-body move. The harder you push your feet into the ground, the more power you'll be able to create; you're essentially coiling your body into a spring to create more potential energy, which helps move the bar.  Squeeze your legs, abs, and triceps.
