If you don’t currently have access to a gym, don’t despair! You can still work towards a bigger, brawnier chest with this killer at-home chest workout. Remember, it’s not all about the bench press. You can bulk up your chest “simply” by performing variations of press ups (when we say simply we mean that it is uncomplicated, not that it’s easy).
Just think how many workout montages take place where the guy is locked away for a crime he didn’t commit but then spends the next 6 months doing press ups and emerges from prison as a total hunk. That could be you!
Since you’re working with “just” your bodyweight, there’s often the assumption that you need to rep out a hundred press-ups to make any difference. But it’s much better to keep the reps manageable and instead vary the type of press up you perform in order to hit those chest muscles from multiple angles.
Do all the reps of each move back to back (or with as little rest as possible), rest for two minutes, repeat, rest for two minutes and then repeat one last time.
1. Rotational press-up – Reps 20
Start in a press-up position and lower yourself to one side, twisting as you do so most of your weight is on one shoulder.
Press up, then do the same on the other side. That’s two reps.
2. Shuffle press-up – Reps 20
Get in a press-up position with one hand ahead of your shoulder and one behind. Lower yourself to the floor and press up. That’s one rep.
At the top of the move, jump or walk your hands into the opposite position, then do the next rep. Continue alternating.
3. Diamond press-up – Reps 10
For this triceps blaster, position your hands together under your chest so your index fingers and thumbs form a triangle, and lower yourself until your chest touches your hands.
Press back up to the start.
4. Gorilla press-up – Reps 10
Start in a standard press-up position, lower yourself to the floor and then press up quickly, launching yourself off the floor.
Slap your chest quickly before returning your hands to the start position.
5. One-leg press-up – Reps 10
Raise one leg, keeping your glutes tight, and do a press-up.
Switch legs and repeat. That’s two reps. Now do the rest.
Perform these exercises once or twice a week, but if you’re also training in the gym make sure you leave at least 48 hours between it and your regular chest/upper-body day.
