Achieve maximum chest growth with this detailed routine.

The Maxed Out Muscle Workout: Chest
Duration 30 min
Exercises 5
Equipment Yes

You’ll notice that our chest routine doesn’t feature the conventional flat barbell bench press. That’s because, from a pec-building standpoint, it’s not the best option. The bench press will get you strong, but it won’t necessarily bulk up your pecs to their peak because it doesn’t offer enough range of motion. You get a better stretch from exercises like dumbbell presses (which we hit from different angles), flyes, and the classic pushup.
