Strength Building the Chest Plus Bodyweight Workout of the Week
Building your chest also builds every muscle in your upper body in some way. Focusing on chest work this week also works your back by way of diffusion.
Using bodyweight exercises, we work different angles. These angles are either primarily chest, back, or shoulders.
When we work these angles, we automatically hit biceps, triceps, rotator cuff muscles, lats, serratus and core.
Strength-wise, we work intermediate rep and set counts, 8-15, and then superset with bodyweight to 30 reps. This way, we max out our work, heart rate and build strength.
Supersets are gonna be antagonist muscles – while the “push” muscles get worked, the “pull” muscles get burned out during recovery!
