Power Chest – Endurance

Oh Yeah! Every meat-head’s favourite day, CHEST DAY! For all of you who are looking for muscle growth for a sizable bust, this is an exercise you need to incorporate into your chest workout.

Muscle worked Pectoralis Major (Chest)
Function Endurance, strength, fat burner, improved power
Reps Until failure
Type Drop Sets
Equipment Bench Press and Olympic bar (45 lbs.)

Muscle Focus

This is a Drop Sets exercise, also referred to as Stripping. It’s ideal that you have a workout partner for this.

Load up the bench press with 4-5 10 lb. plates on each side. I personally like four 10 lb. plates with a final 5 lb. plate on each side. (If you’re not up to that weight, you can always use 5 lb. plates).

Pick up the bar just you would for a regular bench press, hand just over shoulder width apart, evenly spaced, with the bar over the middle of your chest. Bring the bar down to your chest and push back up. Remember to never lock your elbows. Repeat this until you cannot lift anymore. Put the weight down and have your partner remove one plate from each side. Pick up the bar and lift until failure again. Repeat this until you have an empty bar.

Benefits:

This exercise is an excellent way to end a chest workout. It will but up any fat stored in your chest to give you a nice toned look to your already bursting bust. The high rep low weight gives your body a chance to work at the oxidation level, allowing your muscles to more oxygen thus burning calories stored up in fat as opposed to protein after your hard workout. If you perform the exercise at a high rhythm, you will vastly improve your power as well.
