Most men desire to add more definition to their chest muscles and in fact, masculinity is often described to not only having broad shoulders and big triceps and biceps but also to those having well-sculpted chest muscles.
There are numerous ways to attain the chest definition that you desire and among the basic workout routines often suggested are the push up and the chest press. The push up is among the traditional routines although there are now numerous variations of the push ups. The chest press on the other hand makes use of different weights depending on how much challenge you want your muscles to have. Here are some of the chest press and push up routines to have chest definition.
The Inclined Pushup
This type of push up can be performed by simply placing your feet on a couch or on a block that is stable and unmoving in order to prevent any injury. The couch or a block is important for you enough and unmoving to give your body an elevation or a degree of difficulty than an ordinary push up and then perform the regular push up.
The dumbbell chest press
The use of the dumbbell for a chest press instead of the barbell is also one way to change the degree of the difficulty of the exercise. This is because both your arms now will have to work independent of the other. This will particularly work on the sides of your body and this is a nice complement to the barbell exercise. To perform the routine, lie down on the bench or on a step and then begin with the weights on each side of the hand straight up over your chest with your palms facing out. Then bend your elbows and then lower the arms until you reach the position where your elbows are just below your chest. Then start to press on the weights upwards again without having to lock your elbows and bring them close. Perform the routine for at least three sets of eight to sixteen repetitions for every set.
The chest press with dumbbells in alternate
This is another exciting routine since it is a variation of the ordinary dumbbell chest press. To execute the routine, position yourself on a lie down position on the bench, a step, a ball or just the floor. Then start with the weights on the side of your hands up over your chest and the palms should face out. Then keep your left arm in its place while you bend the right elbow and lower the arm until it is just below the chest. Then press the arm back without locking the elbow and then repeat the routine on the other side of the arm and then alternately. Do the routine for at least three sets of at last eight to sixteen repetitions for every set.
In these exercises, you may modify the degree of difficulty by changing the degree of the elevation of the weights depending on how fast you want change to effect.
