The most effective chest exercises for guys start with bench presses. Do a barbell bench press set, then get right into a dumbbell bench press set and repeat. This will affect all of your pectoral muscles, the ones you’ll want to strut when you’re all done. Lift as much weight as you can handle, doing as many sets as you can. Don’t forget to rest in between reps.
Next up, do push-ups. Do them with your palms or knuckles on the floor. You can get fancy and add a clap before you come down, elevate your feet behind you on a bench or alternate your arms. Get creative. Move on to chest dips and you’re almost there. These are great for your triceps and work your lower pecs. You’re basically using your triceps here to lift your lower body. There are ring dips, using gymnastic rings, bench dips and even chair dips.
Lifting weights alone isn’t the only path to awesome chest muscles. Swimming is a great exercise that builds upper body strength, and it puts you where the girls in bathing suits tend to be: the pool.
The best chest exercises for men should include a combination of these workouts done on a regular basis.
