  1. 1. ==== ====Hello from ====Whether youre looking to attract girls without saying a word, or you just want to improve yourlooks and strength, building up chest muscle is important. By increasing chest muscle mass, menget the attention they want from the ladies and feel more confident and strong. Women preferpowerful men that can protect them, not men with saggy man boobs, right? And lets be honest,you would prefer to have massive pecs too, wouldnt you?Jokes aside, its actually much easier than people make it out to be. With the right workout routineand simple changes in diet you can improve your health, looks, self-esteem and confidence in verylittle time. Getting a routine and sticking to it is important when you are trying to increase musclemass. While it is difficult to develop the right routine, there are many resources for doing socorrectly. Do not breeze through this step! It is critical to lay the right foundation of knowledge,then act on it when learning the right way to build up chest muscle.There are a variety of exercises you can include in your routine that target chest muscles, rangingfrom simple push-ups to dips, to the classic bench press. One of the most commonly usedexercises for chest muscles is the standard bench press. This traditional exercise is done usingweights on a barbell while lying down on the bench with your back flat. The routine isstraightforward: firmly grasp the bar (a wide grip is best to develop chest muscles), bring weightdown to your chest and lift in a smooth motion until arms are straight, without locking the elbows atthe top. This counts as one rep.Also, using an inclined or declined position will target upper and lower pectoral (chest) musclesquite well. When you are focusing on building up chest muscle you need to remember the othermuscle groups as well. Keep this in mind, and be sure to mix up your workouts in the properamounts and order. Yet another reason many people pay $1,000s for a personal trainer: they dothis difficult aspect for you. But, with the right knowledge and info sources online, you can easilyget this same advantage over 90% of lifters around you without spending much at all.Muscle mass increases as the body repairs damage from increased use, growing to accommodatefuture resistance. A good way to maximize muscle growth is to workout every other day to giveyour muscles a day to heal between workouts. You can, however, workout daily as long as youswitch emphasis; e.g. Monday, work on chest, shoulders and triceps, then Tuesday, work on legsand abs, and so on. It is vital to remember to write down how many reps you do each workout andwhat weight you used to help you track your progress. Doing so will allow you to see over timewhat works for you, and how far youre progressing.Your body needs more calories when you are working out to be able to build up chest muscle, orany muscles for that matter. Increased amounts of protein are needed to build muscle as well.Your diet should include lean meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and plenty of water.
  2. 2. Foods high in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are especially important as well.Supplementation with multivitamins, essential fatty acids and whey protein is fine, but steroids areunsafe and can damage the body. As with any change you make to your daily life, do your ownresearch, listen to professionals and base your decisions off of people who know the facts likephysicians, trainers or professional natural bodybuilders.Tips for improving chest exercises1. You need to warm up before lifting to increase your strength and help prevent injury. Do so bydoing the standard exercise for the body parts youre working out that day in decreasing reps andincreasing weights for five sets, ending up at 50% of your max. For example, if you are workingout the chest and biceps, do 10 reps of dumbbell bench press at 10% of your max, then do fourmore sets, ending up at 2 reps of 50% of your max. This will get your blood flowing withoutwearing you out.2. Watch your form:i. Keep your back straight, and do not use momentum to lift.ii. Keep your abdominal muscles tight.iii. Proper breathing is important.iv. Exhale when muscles contract (as you lift).v. Inhale as they lengthen (return to starting position).vi. While warming up, get pumped for battle. Youre going to be ripped! Mental focus is essential tobodybuilding.vii. Listen to your body. Skip a day if youre sick or in excessive pain.3. Focus on smaller repetitions and more weight.
