    Chest

    Soooooo....I just figured I'd share this.....my chest....especially my upper chest has never looked so good!!!!!!! I have been doing incline reverse grip bench press. Not only is it blowing my ****ing upper chest up....its increasing my bench.

    Try it!!!!!! It can be done safely....I do it at home..alone....Im not saying no thumbs either!

    Try it and let me know in 4-6weeks....shit will be amazing.......I promise!

    Re: Chest

    I am going to throw this into my routine. I dont do a lot of flat bench cause of a bad shoulder, so this will be nice to switch up to for a while.

    Re: Chest

    I find it awkward initially lifting the bar of the bench. But you're right, a study measuring muscle contractions showed that using a reverse grip 'stresses' the chest muscles more.

    Re: Chest

    Bros my buddy taught me this.

    Get on an incline bench grab some dumbells and position yourself as if you where going to do seated curls. Only difference is you keep your arms relatively straight and you bring the dumbells up palms facing the ceiling using you upper chest and shoulder.
    Keep the tension on the chest.

    Great way to switch up your upper chest workouts.

    Re: Chest

    BTW....when doing this, the movement is much lower than ...say....flat bench. Bring the bar down to about the top of your abs/very bottom of your pecs. I press up to the same spot as normal bench though.

    Re: Chest

    Thanks for the tip. My wrist has been bothering me for months (bending backwards) and this might help. Did you start with your normal weight or something lighter?

    No...go with something a lot lighter when first trying it. It can be awkward getting it up at first, I'm used to it now but about 40 lbs diff from flat bench max. I press it up against the bench and then pivot out.

    Its funny that when I do.. say... flat bench, that is exactly where I bring the bar.

    This movement scares the shit out of me. I can just see the bar coming right at my face. It is effective though. I've done it with just 135 before. Wasn't worth it to me as I never had problems developing my upper pec. Bottom, now that is a problem for me.
