If you really want to pump up your pecs and build the best chest in the gym, you need targeted exercises that exhaust your muscles in the best way possible.
Because the chest muscles (specifically the pectoralis major, aka pecs) are so huge, and contribute to so many movements, you’ll need more than just a handful of exercises to build your chest from every angle.
These 30 chest exercises will develop your pecs (and the surounding musculature), spark greater levels of strength, and give you a more imposing physique.
1. Barbell Bench Press
Grasp the bar just outside shoulder-width and arch your back so there’s space between your lower back and the bench. Pull the bar out of the rack and lower it to your sternum, tucking your elbows about 45° to your sides. When the bar touches your body, drive your feet hard into the floor and press the bar back up.
