THE FIN­ISHER

Men's Health (Australia) - - Build Your War Chest -

This farmer’s walk drill hones pos­ture, which can help your chest look big­ger Start stand­ing with heavy dumb­bells at your sides. Take 10 steps for­ward, then 10 back­wards. Do this for 5 min­utes. For the first minute, walk for 30 sec­onds, then rest for 30. Walk for 5 more sec­onds each minute af­ter that. Do 2 rounds.

AVOID BOOBY TRAPS

Pre­vent­ing man boobs in­volves more than push-ups

BACK THINGS UP

If you want a big­ger chest, do back ex­er­cises. Do­ing only push-ups and bench presses will lead your chest­mus­cle fi­bres to tighten, pulling your shoul­ders for­ward (es­pe­cially if you have a desk job). Off­set that with rows; stronger back mus­cles will pull your shoul­ders back, al­low­ing your chest fi­bres to broaden out vis­ually.

SQUEEEEEZE!

Your chest mus­cles are re­spon­si­ble for more than just press­ing weight up­ward; they also adduct your shoul­der, pulling it to­ward your chest. When you do your chest moves, stim­u­late your in­ner chest fi­bres by squeez­ing your chest hard as you straighten your arms. Keep that in mind dur­ing this work­out, es­pe­cially when you’re do­ing cross­over push-ups and in­cline push-ups.
