  • Full Chest Routines

  • Lower Chest Routines

2. Full Chest Routines for Beginners

Before you start your chest routines, pay special attention to:

  • Number of cycles

  • Number of repetitions

  • Sequence of exercises

And finally take 30-60 seconds of rest between exercises as a standard. The chest blaster workout contains variety. You can do this work out without any equipment. If you do not have an incline surface you can use a chair. You work on the full chest by hitting multiple angles. The chest explosion is a little more advanced and requires equipment. But a good bar is all you need. Make sure you go low and deep on all exercises. You aren’t really going to assassinate your chest. But after this workout you might be sore the next day.

3. Lower Chest Workout for Beginners

To target the lower part of the chest it means you need to find the right angle – by either moving the head forward or by using an incline surface. After this chest workout you won’t have to train your chest again. Take note of the number of cycles. You have enough time to rest and the reps are low. But the total amount of reps is higher.

4. Upper Chest Routines for Beginners

To target the upper chest you need to change the angle. Declining is key. But it also means you need to have enough strength. Build these up slowly. In the next routine you will combine, balance with strength. Rest sufficiently between your decline push ups and frog stand.

You need explosive power. For the cool moves, like the 360 pushups and by combining explosive exercises with strength exercises you will get there. Explode as high as you can and then decline push up all the way with the chest to the floor. This workout is a reminder that you are never done with the basics.
