how much can you bench? Said no woman, ever. As a group, women aren’t too concerned with training chest. Sure, we give it a thorough, weekly workout, mostly because we know we’re supposed to — not because we want huge pecs, bro! But regular chest training helps prevent upper-body imbalances, which can lead to injury down the road. And since most chest exercises also work your shoulders, triceps and even your back, they work toward total-body functional and synergistic strength.
This workout employs four advanced techniques to work every fiber of your chest, building sleek, strong muscles without added bulk. Combine this workout with the Chestretch moves (see sidebar) and your pecs will turn heads — for all the right reasons.
