Checkout this great chest workout routine by Athlean-X. This is a routine that you can do at home.
Everyone thinks that a bodyweight chest workout has to consist of only pushups. While they may make up a majority of the common bodyweight chest exercises, it’s more important how you’re doing them to make sure you’re building muscle with your body weight chest workout.
In this video I show you a typical chest workout set and the techniques that you must use to not just train to failure, but through failure for best results. I lay out four killer chest exercises that are to be performed each to failure without resting in between. This chest workout without weights relies on the intensity of this drop set technique to help you get a bigger chest at home.
The four chest exercises without weights are:
1. The Jax Pushups (done to failure)
2. Lizard Walk Push ups (done to failure)
3. Rocking Horse Pushups (performed to failure)
4. Floating X Plank (done until final failure)
This represents just one set in our home chest workout and shows you how hard you should be training to really build chest muscle quickly.
When you’re trying to get a bigger chest, you know you have to train hard enough and with enough intensity to force your muscles to grow. Doing the same set of push ups over and over again is not going to be enough to do this. For a body weight chest workout (or any bodyweight workout for that matter) to be effective, it needs to amplify the intensity to much higher levels than ever before. This video shows you one example of a type of home chest workout set capable of doing this.
