One of the few things both men & women can agree on, is that they both love a good chest! But if you’re chest looks like a flat ironing board it’s time to change things up. Today we give you 3 of the best exercises to build a thick chest to be proud of showing off!
UNDERSTANDING THE CHEST
The chest is made up of two muscles that work together to make the chest function. The muscle are the pectoralis major and pectoralis minor. The pectoralis minor is located directly underneath the pectoralis major. Overall, these chest muscles start at the clavicle and insert at the sternum and the armpit area (humerous).
The three different functions of the chest muscles are the side arm pitching motion, the ability to bring your arm up and down at your sides, and the classic arm wresting motion. The basic recommended exercises for building up your chest include the bench press and flyes.
