The line for the bench bench on Monday is known, but is it good to do bench presses and go shower?

Do not.

We have chosen a few more exercises to add to your chest training plan.

There are not many, but they are effective, in addition to that, you do not need a variety worthy of the IKEA catalog, just half a dozen exercises to work effectively on the chest.

All exercises are presented with an animated image, so it is normal for the page to take a little longer to load than normal.

Flat Bench Press and Dumbbell Press

Two classics.

The flat bench press is probably the most used exercise to work the chest, but the press with dumbbells is not far behind.

Both exercises allow you to work your chest very effectively, and move high loads.

Use at least one of these exercises in your chest training, do between 3 to 4 sets and between 6 to 10 repetitions, and your chest will grow.

Inclined Bench Press and Inclined Dumbbell Press

Despite being just a variation of the above exercises, it was difficult not to include them when it comes to the best exercises to train the chest.

These are small variations, in which you raise the bench about 45º and work more significantly on the upper chest.

They are two favorites of many, and rightly so.

We have already passed the main ones, but a good auxiliary exercise for chest training is the openings.

It is no more effective than the bench press or press.

You will lift less load in this exercise.

This movement is usually performed with dumbbells, but there is a very interesting variation with cables, which you can see below in the image.

Cable openings


There are only six exercises, but they are simple and effective exercises that will bring you good results.

In addition, five of these exercises are easy to perform for those who do not train in a gym, as they only require a barbell with weights or a pair of dumbbells.

Attention, although there are six good exercises, it does not mean that you need to perform all of them.
