How to Get a Chiseled Chest for Summer

A lot of guys want to build their pecs for a more sculpted chest. Although they definitely look great, your pecs can also give you extra power and strength during your workouts. The FizzUp trainer explains how to get a chiseled chest for summer and why you should start the Beach Body program now!

MUSCLES THAT MAKE UP YOUR PECS

Your pecs are made up of three different muscles: the pectoral major, the pectoral minor and the subclavius. The pectoralis major is an extremely wide muscle that extends from the thorax to the humerus. It makes up the middle and upper part of your pecs and enables you to lower your shoulders and keep them stable. The pectoralis minor, found under the pectoral major, also enables you to lower your shoulders and keeps your shoulder blades straight and toward the body. The subclavius is a small muscle located under the pectoralis major, which enables you to lower your clavicle.

These three muscles help you bend, rotate and adduct your arms. They contribute to your breathing as accessory inspiratory muscles, meaning that they enable your rib cage to expand.

WHICH EXERCISES SHOULD YOU DO TO GET A CHISELED CHEST FOR SUMMER?

Bodyweight strength training can help you gain muscle mass and volume in your pecs. Push-ups are the perfect exercise to do if you want to build your pecs. Doing different variations, positions and grips of this exercise is important in order to build all your pec muscles.

Wide-grip push-ups work the outer part of your pecs, whereas close-grip push-ups make the sternum visible, which is often highly sought after by men. FizzUp incorporates this exercise into your muscle-building workouts to improve your resistance and muscular endurance. What’s muscular endurance? It’s the ability to repeat an exercise against a resistance for an extended period of time. It builds power, explosiveness and strength. There are many push-up variations, such as hindu push-ups, explosive push-ups and incline push-ups. They’re all waiting for you in your FizzUp program!

Another effective bodyweight exercise for building your pecs is bench dips. Not only do they strengthen your biceps, but also the lower part of your pecs. They’re so easy and you only need a chair or coffee table to do them.
