Most people end their chest workout with the last set of their last exercise. In this video, I’m going to show you how to punish your pecs and get your best chest pump ever by using a chest workout finisher! The three exercise finishing combo is the perfect way to end your chest training session by helping you push your pecs past their breaking point, and into the realm of new growth.
There are two separate finishers shown here. The first is a bilateral chest exercise combo. This is perfect for those who already have great command of their chest and are looking for an intense way to end their chest workout. The exercises for this finisher are as follows:
- DB Incline Bench Press x 10-12 RM to failure
- Dip Stretch (Stretch your pecs at the bottom of a dip with for 30 seconds)
- Inner Third Chest Crossovers x 20 reps to failure in inner 1/3 of motion.
If on the other hand you don’t have good control of your pec contraction and want an alternative, you can try this unilateral chest workout finisher instead:
DB Single-Arm Incline Bench Press x 10-12 RM to failure
Rack Pec Stretch (Stretch pec major and pec minor for 30 seconds)
Cavaliere Crossover x 20 reps to failure in inner 1/3 of motion.
Each of these complexes would be performed a total of 3 times with very little rest in between, depending on which one you choose to do. You can use both of them on different chest training days as well if you so choose.
As with any workout, it’s important to take your chest past the point of failure if you want to elicit the fastest changes in size and strength. Doing the same chest workout over and over again and hoping that you will build new muscle is likely not going to cut it. If you want to get a bigger chest, you need to utilize chest workouts and techniques that help you to greater challenges.
