Chest Muscles Explained

by Jan 15, 2021Fitness0 comments

Your chest muscle is made up of the pectoralis major and the pectoralis minor.

Which is why they’re often abbreviated as pecs.

This muscle group spreads across from your shoulders to the breast bone.

The pectoralis major Is as you might have guessed the bigger of the two and helps flex the shoulder joint, while moving your arm toward and across the chest.

The pectoralis minor is smaller and found underneath the pectoralis major.

Its job is to help pull the Shoulder forward and down.

As you probably know there are countless chest exercises.

So for now I will stick with the most common and important ones.

For compound exercises we have the barbell bench press which you can do normal so flat, incline and decline dumbbell bench press.

Again normal incline and decline push ups and chest dips.

These trained not only a chest but also triceps and shoulders.

Chest isolation exercises include the pec deck dumbbell flys and cable flys.

As a beginner I suggest you focus on barbell and dumbbell bench pressing and build up strength over time.

A common mistake is to do dozens of sets of isolation exercises especially cable flights because they look cool.

So when you see someone at the gym hogging the cable tower,

because they need to hit their chest from multiple angles,

you can usually tell that they have no idea what they’re doing.

Triceps Explained

Unlike the biceps the triceps are often overlooked by many beginners.
That’s a shame because they make up about two thirds of the upper arm.
So bigger triceps actually benefit your arm size more than bigger biceps.
As you might expect due to the name,TRI it’s a 3-headed muscle group, with a long head, a lateral head and a medial head.

HAMSTRINGS

The hamstrings are a group of muscles at the rear of the upper leg.
They flex the knee joint, adduct the leg and extend the thigh to the backside of the body.
They’re made up of a long head and a short head.

Supplements Overview

The last step in setting up your fitness diet is adding supplements.

Like I said in the beginning, supplements aren’t important at all.

In fact you could see great results without ever using one.

Also most supplements are completely hyped and overpriced.

Supplement brands literally spend hundreds of millions of dollars each year to sell you their new product.

That said there are a few supplements that I think makes sense to add to your diet.

The list is very short and all of them are pretty cheap.

Here’s what I’m talking about.
