Alright, Here are the Exercises i do on the bench Press



Narrow Grip Bench Press:
Do a normal Bench Press with the proper form, but hold the barbel with a narrow grip. YOur hands should be about 6 to 8 inches apartt. (Start with a lighter weight)

Wide Grip Bench Press
Do a normal bench press with the proper form, but this time hold the bar with a wide grip. Your hands should be a few inches further than shoulder-width apart.

Dumbell Flies
Get two dumbbells and lie back on a becnh with your legs slighty apart, feet firm on the floor and your arms raised. Hild the dumbells above you, palms facing eachother. Extend your arms, keep your back straight on firm on the bench and keep your elbows unlocked.
Lower the dumbells out and away from eachother in a semicircular motion. Keep your wrist locked. Lower until the dumbbells are at cehst level. Your elbows should be bent at roughly a 45 degree angle, while your back should be straight. Raise back to start and repeat

for the beginners if you lift by yourself i suggest using machines.you might not lift as much but you will learn proper form which will help you in the long run to lift more.also the dumbell exercises shown are very good.dont forget the decline press.works the lower part of your chest.most people dont do this exercise.

a great exercise for chest and back is called cable X (cable access workout) it is a great exercise and highly demanding!!! Place D handle to the upper cable of the tower, stand in the middle with one step forward. using your arms with ur elbows slightly bent pull both handles towards each other in front of your torso. so that they meet. 3 sets 10 -12 reps

JimDin, just do a search on bodyweight exercises. There are a ton of them you can do, if you are serious about it. But it all takes patience.

yea ummm the worst advice ive heard it my life. Machines do not work if u wanna build muscle. It's a known fact that in order to build, 85% of your workout must include iron. This is because it works out the fast and slow muscle twitch fibers. Machines will just get people lazy...you must learn proper form through free weights. Plus it builds toughness, better grip, etc.

Pullups work you back mostly and biceps a little(unless ya do close grip chins then the emphasis is on the bi's a lot more) and push ups work chest anterior delt and triceps....

Iight I been doing about 200-240 (3 sets) push ups everyday for the last few years and I got a bench press setup to blast my chest

I used to lift long ago and kinda know what I am doing

Problem: I do like 90% of my body weight to start out with (about 5 sets) and then drop it by 20lbs and do another 5 sets...I do them until failure and I never get any tighness afterwords, I look in the mirror and my muscles don't even bulge like after the push ups...next day I feel no burn...I don't think they are working...I even do inclines, but nothing

I need something to rip my pecs but I don't have a workout buddy so i can't get a spot

any advice??


sorry about long post

sorry about long post
1st I think that doing 200+ push-ups everyday is a lil too much, push-ups are no mass-building exercise and if you do the everyday there's very little recovery time for your muscles to grow bigger
nxt you said you do your benchpresses till failure, that's a good thing to do now and then to shake things up, but your standards routine should be doing 4 series of 8 reps tops per exercise (if you're doing lioke 4 different chest-exercises), but I know that sh*t is hard to do without a spotter, but if you have a gym-pass you can use a smith machine
and last, a burn does not nescessarily mean you had a proper/good workout the day before

hope any of this helps
peace

^^word i be doing sh*t like what yall been postin for a while n now im benchin 300-315 like 14 times
First off, I would like to call bullsh*t on you putting up 315 no cot damn 14 times, do you realize how fu*kin jacked you would have to be to do this? :thefu*k: Lets be honest here. I'm not trying to start sh*t, just callin you out on that one.

Umm yes, it really does.

When you're building muscle, you are actually tearing down existing muscle, and as it repairs itself, it builds more muscle to prevent against another "tear". Obviously, tearing down your muscles is a painful, but necessary process. If you don't feel ANY discomfort the next day, your workout was simply not rigorous enough. Trust me, with all the pain I've been through, after seeing the results, the saying "No pain, No gain" holds some truth.

I gotta agree with 5ive_Micz on this one, you are doing way to many sets and reps to build effectively. More weight, less reps, and fewer sets. For example, on benchpress, I dropset 215 (meaning 215, 205, 195) and I work to failure on all of them, meaning that I fail three times! I chose this weight correctly, as I tend to fail at around 9 reps on each set, with a 3 minute break. I find this effective, as I work pecs twice a week with my routine, and I weight 155.

Decrease your sets, more weight, and fewer reps.

Which leads me to my next observation, sorry guys, but the people that don't have access to a gym, it will be more difficult to get swoll. The stories you hear of people getting huge from pushups, situps, pullups, etc. are doing over 1000 pushups a day, which I think is a little extreme. Also, many of them are doing manual labor, which does build strength. When you work like a horse and eat like a horse, you will get huge like a horse.... :D Sorry, I don't know much about getting huge without weights but there ARE ways. Stay active, play sports (often gains you access to a weight room), find heavy things to lift, be creative.

Sorry bout the long post....

i do alot of pushups everyday like 300 in the morning, 300 at night, and i space them out by types and sets. like arms wide, closed, diamond, then do double pums pushups, like when you go down and barely come up then go down and come all the way up making that one rep
