PEC POWER PLAY

FORCE YOUR PECS TO GET GROWING WITH THIS HIGH- VOLUME, BARE-BONES WORKOUT

There are no secrets to building a bigger chest. Press heavy barbells and dumbbells; take sets to failure in hypertrophy-friendly rep ranges (anywhere from 8 to 20, even up to 30); isolate the pecs with single-joint movements like flyes, pullovers, and pulldowns; and make sure you’re doing all of this with ample volume—at least 15 quality sets for chest per workout, once or twice a week. Done.

Pretty straightforward, but that doesn’t make it easy. The following chest workout, with proper exercise form demonstrated by IFBB pro and 2017 Arnold Classic third-place finisher Maxx Charles, is just the type of meat-and-potatoes chest routine we like. The movements are basic and foundational (particularly the barbell flat-bench and incline presses), the rep counts are ideal for building muscle, and the volume is right in the sweet spot at 16 total sets. Throw in a single intensity-boosting technique smack dab in the middle of the workout— a pre-exhaust superset of cable crossovers and Hammer Strength incline presses—and your pecs will have no choice but to grow.
