Being at home or at a gym everyone wants to know how to build bigger chest muscles. Have you ever noticed that Monday is chest day? Then Tuesday is chest day part duex. Some might even call it national chest day 1 and national chest day 2.
When it comes down to how to build bigger chest muscles you’ll learn in this post and WOD how to just that. Also in this post find out what mistakes people make when trying to gain muscle and lose fat.
Top Two Common Muscle Building Mistakes: Working your chest 4-5x a week is massive waste of time because you’re toying with an overuse injury plus if you’re already less than a size 10 (for the ladies) and less than a size 33 (for the fellas) all you’re doing is using up important protein within your body. (Muscle building protein)
- Isolated Exercises – Loading your body with heavy weights like in a chest fly won’t stress your muscles the way you need it to. Therefore your body won’t release Testosterone and & Growth Hormone the way it will when you compound exercises like Push-Ups and or Planks.
- Eating Like A Bird – Training your body while only eating 1200 calories, weighing 140 pounds and burning 600 calories a day is a recipe for Atrophy (Muscle Degeneration), not Hypertrophy (Muscle Generation). Simple fix: Eat MORE.
Here’s How To Build Bigger Chest Muscles aka How To Get A Wide Chest aka How To Get Bigger Pecs aka How To Build Chest Muscles Without Weights: (There are SO many ways to say it, but they all mean the same thing)
Eat More. If you’re not eating enough your body cannot create the muscle. Your body needs the proteins to convert into energy. When you don’t have enough energy coming in and you don’t have excess body fat it takes it from your muscles. Finding out what your minimum weight should be for your height is pretty simple.
How much weight does a person have to gain to stop looking skinny? A simple rule is to take your height in centimeters (height in inches * 2.54 = height in centimeters), subtract 100, and that’s your goal weight in kg (pounds / 2.2 = weight in kg). After you find your goal weight if you weigh anything less, then you’ll always look skinny. (I know many people want to “look skinny” but I prefer people to look and FEEL strong.)
Complete Compounds. Each WOD created sums this step up. No need to worry about this step, but it’s still worth mentioning. The exercises recommended for compounds are squats, deadlifts, push-ups, and squat-press. They are the fastest exercises used to build strength and bulk. Do them often.
Train Your Legs (More Often Than Once Or Twice A Week). Doing those squats and deadlifts will increase the release of Testosterone and Growth Hormones, in turn, will help increase the size of your chest by pure saturation of increases. Get them stronger. See all the WODs that have to do with your legs and crank them out.
Rest. Did you know your muscles grow while they rest? Aka sleep. Getting the proper amount of sleep AND eating enough calories will help you to understand that how to build bigger chest muscles happens in bed and in the kitchen.
Go Fast. Doing your push-ups fast with the full range of motion that’s available to you and good form will recruit more muscle fibers, in turn, will help your chest grow. Push as fast as you can on the way up and go down a little slower, but not too slow.
Set Realistic Goals For Yourself. Every BODY is different. Remember that until the day you die. Even if you do everything perfect, you still might not have the results as the person that you’re trying to be like. Most of what you’re trying to change has already been in place since the day you were born: Genetics.
Be Patient With Your Progress. Depending on your age your progress will be different. As I write this post (2017) I am 32 years old. My progress will be WAY faster than the 17-year-old me. If I could go back in time and tell the 17-year-old me something I would tell myself this: Be patient with your progress and build a solid foundation first.
