7 Exercises for an Explosive Chest

The chest is one of the biggest areas of the entire body. Both pectorals makes up the vast majority of musculature on the front of the body, and as such their development can absolutely make or break your entire physique.

Having a big, well developed, chest makes you look big and lean while wearing a t-shirt – and absolutely monstrous without one.

Something worth mentioning is that the pectorals are one of the most explosive muscle groups in the entire body, in which they dominate powerful pressing movements.

Subsequently, chest development is actually maximized during these pressing movements. And it is for this same reason so many people leave a huge amount of chest development on the table – because they don’t train it correctly.

So with all this in mind, in the following article we have outlined the best 7 exercises for an explosive chest – allowing you to maximize your chest development quickly and efficiently.

1) Dumbbell Bench Press

When most people think of chest based movements, they automatically jump to the barbell bench press. And while there is nothing inherently wrong with this exercise (it offers a great tool to develop upper body strength), it doesn’t develop the pectorals nearly as well as the dumbbell bench press.

The dumbbell bench press allows us to increase our range of motion AND target the pectorals specifically (through a better line of pull) – of which both factors lead to vastly improved chest development and is thus one of the best dumbbell exercises for chest.

The important thing here is to control the eccentric portion of the lift and move the weights up as quickly as possible on the concentric portion.

Cardio vs Conditioning – Setting The Record Straight

If you have any sort of experience with health and fitness, you’ve likely heard the terms “strength training” and “cardio” thrown around before. Strength training refers to exercise that focuses on building and strengthening the muscle through the use of some type of weight or resistance. A common example would be weight lifting. Cardio, on the other hand, is a much more general category that refers to any exercise that raises your heart rate. The purpose of cardio is to improve your cardiovascular system, and common examples would be running or cycling.cardio and conditioning

Other than strength training and cardio, there is a third form of training known as conditioning. Conditioning is sort of like a sub-category of cardio because it raises your heart rate, but it can also be a hybrid of both cardio AND strength training because it can involve weights. It refers to exercise that requires you to train at high-intensity for short bursts of time. Common examples would be sprinting, or if you’re familiar with the practice, HIIT (high-intensity interval training).
