Get Pumped for Monday Chest Day!

Decline Push-Up: The decline push-up is a great way to target your lower chest. Start by lying on a bench or step with your feet elevated and your hands placed slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Next, lower yourself by bending your elbows until they reach 90 degrees. Hold this position for a second before pushing back up to the starting position. Repeat this exercise 10 times for three sets.
Bench Press: The bench press is a classic chest exercise and it’s one of the most effective ways to build strength in your upper chest area. Lie on a flat bench with your feet flat on the floor and your arms extended above you holding dumbbells or barbells at shoulder width apart. Lower them towards your chest keeping them close together as you do so, pause for a second when they reach your chest then press back up again until they’re back in the starting position. Repeat 10 times for three sets.
Incline Dumbbell Flyes: Incline dumbbell flyes are an excellent way to target your upper chest muscles without putting too much strain on other areas of your body. Start by lying on an incline bench with two dumbbells held at shoulder width apart above you. Keeping a slight bend in the elbows, slowly lower them outwards as if giving someone a hug until they reach shoulder level, then bring them back up again until they meet at the top again while making sure to keep tension in those muscles throughout each repetition. Do 10 reps for three sets when performing this exercise.
