Tips for Pectoral Training in the Gym

The development of the pectoral muscles is more than important for all bodybuilding practitioners .

Considered the muscles of manhood, its development brings a sense of well-being, enhanced in turn, by a better physical appearance.

This is a muscle group that, in general, many bodybuilding practitioners find it difficult to develop properly.

For this reason today I bring you some training tips to apply them in their routines and with the help of the exercise guide for total muscle exercises you achieve better results.

YOUR ROUTINE BEGINS WITH PECTORAL TRAINING

The first series of the session is crucial, since this is the moment in which we can give everything.

Choose compound exercises for theĀ development of muscle mass, such as the bench press with bar . Heavy loads are not only used to recruit more muscle fibers but also trigger the production of testosterone.

That is why it is preferable to make heavy sets of bench press when starting a weight training , that is when our energy is at its maximum level; we must avoid the long series, but not those of preheating.

Slow down the recovery time between sets and you will see how those muscles are congested at the end of the session.

USING WEIGHTS OR GYMNASTICS MACHINES

The work with weights is ideal for the muscular development of the pectorals.

A typical session starts at the bench and with the bar, and then continues with the rest of the weight exercises.

Using machines can be useful in case of lack of time or when you just start to train in the gym and you need a solid base from which to start developing.

BREATHING AT THE MOMENT OF EXERCIATING THE CHEST

To avoid an abrupt increase in blood pressure do not hold your breath during the execution of chest exercises.

It begins to exhale during the concentric phase, that is, when the point where the movement is most difficult is passed, it is usually halfway through.

PRESS WITH A BAR

In the exercises of Press with bar, try to train always with a range of movement the most complete possible, but without going too far, since this can give rise to injuries on the joint, that is to say do not extend the arms completely upwards.

BAR GRIP

Generally in the exercises with a bar, when this is done with a wide grip the pectoral works effectively.

However, by varying the separation of the hands in the bars and / or machines, we can make the muscle fibers work differently , obtaining excellent complementary results.

If we take the bar with a wider grip , pectoral muscles will be the most requested.

While a narrower grip results in a greater load on the triceps.
