Men’s favorite muscle, pecs are often neglected by women who focus on the abs and buttocks! So I will explain how to work the pecs. I’m talking about the myths about the pectorals and explains the best exercises.


And yes, as boys never miss a session of pecs, we girls, we often tend to less work. It is important to work for the overall balance of your body. But I stop you girls right now. Pectoral exercises will not impact your chest. They will not make it swell, or go back anyway. And your breasts are not going to turn into muscles either! The breast is mostly composed of fat, it covers the muscles. By working on them, you develop the muscles under the breasts but that will have almost no impact on your chest! It’s weight loss, and therefore usually fat, that can impact your chest. On the other hand, if you practice a sport with a lot of impact, do not hesitate to choose the right bra (if you’re interested, I’ll explain how to choose your bra here ).


So I will offer a typical session in the room to help you work the chest. For this I propose 4 classic exercises. They will allow you to work under different angles all the muscles of the pecs. And for each exercise, you will do 4 sets of 12 repetitions. Make a series of 1 st year, made 1 minute 30 break and chain 2 E series. Once you have completed the 4 sets of 1 st year, go to the 2 e year and do a new 4 sets of 12 repetitions. And so on for each exercise! Boys, this session will suit you perfectly too.


So, if you are wondering how to work the pecs, here are the 4 exercises that I propose. These are classic and effective exercises for working the pectoral muscles. These exercises will also require the muscles of the arms (mainly the triceps), the abdominals or the shoulders. It is really interesting to add them regularly to your training! Before you start, of course, think about warming up. Then do the following exercises:

  • Bench
  • Inclined developed
  • Reclining
  • Sweater

For each exercise, start with a light weight to avoid hurting yourself. You will gradually increase as sessions progress. You can perform the bench press or incline with dumbbells, a free bar or a guided bar. For each of these exercises, keep your back straight or slightly arched. Never take off the buttocks of the bench and keep your feet on the ground during exercise to avoid injury.
