Chest:Week 2

This week’s workout introduces cable work for chest, and we’ll also reduce rest periods to 90 seconds between sets. Don’t forget to stretch your chest between sets to create that space for growth.

NOTES:

* Incline cable flyes create a lot of tension—you don’t have that possibility of resting at the top of the move the way you do with dumbbells. I like to use a 45-degree angle for this move.

* Cable crossovers target the underside of your pecs as well as the outer portion. Check out my video to see tips on how to perform this move.

* To keep yourself hydrated consume HYDRA-CHARGE® and make certain to get in at least a gallon of water on each of your training days.

TIP:
Avoid locking out on pressing moves. That allows your pecs to rest in the middle of the set. By pressing your arms to virtually straight but without locking your elbow joint, you keep your pectoral engaged throughout the set.
