Some people are in for a shock when they read this post. These exercises are probably not what you had in mind when considering the most effective ways to train your chest.

Nevertheless, this is the truth – with scientific confirmation.

If you haven’t seen my recent post on the 3 best bicep exercises, make sure you do so after reading this.

3 X MUSCLE GAINS | SIZE GAINS IN 2 WKS | 100% FREE 🙂


 

There are some great exercises for the chest. But the debate usually centers on whether we should use a barbell or 2 x dumbbells. There should be phases of your training when you use both, but technically speaking, it seems that dumbbells allow for more muscle fiber recruitment across the chest.

The Bompa, Cornacchia study showed a 4% difference in favor of dumbbells. And it was the decline position recruited most fibers.

Dumbbells are better for chest growth than a barbell. Click here for top 3 exercises Click To Tweet

 

(1) DECLINE DUMBBELL BENCH PRESSES

 

This is why I have the Decline Dumbbell Bench Press as the primary chest movement in THT training, much to the surprise of some people. However, THT is a scientific training methodology for producing size gains; it is not wedded to tradition or people’s mere “opinions”.

The top 3 results according to this study are as follows:

  1. Decline dumbbell bench press — 93%
  2. Decline barbell bench press——- 89%
  3. Flat dumbbell bench press ——– 87%
Decline dumbbell bench press is the best exercise for the chest. Click here for explanation Click To Tweet

 

Here’s my video demonstration for doing Decline Dumbbell Bench Presses effectively (please note that my bench IS declined – the angle of the video kinda makes it seem flat – although a steep decline is not required for this).

Make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel for all my new videos.

 

(2) DEEP DIPS

 

Now this study didn’t test dips. Dips are awesome. Dips should have been tested. They actually work the chest with the same mechanics as a decline or dumbbell bench press. That’s why they are interchangeable in THT training.

Here’s my demo video of Deep Chest Dips…

 

If you don’t know the difference between chest and tricep dips, read my post on that here.

With deep dips, you can add weight and reach failure in the most hypertrophic rep range – 8-12 reps per set.

 

(3) PARTIAL CHEST FLYS

 

In this particular study, dumbbell chest flys came in at 84% fiber activation. However, they used the traditional and less effective form. I have found a MUCH better way to get these done.

A full range actually takes tension OFF the chest for the majority of the movement (the top half) – this decreases muscle fiber recruitment.

Doing this short range creates a state of “constant tension”, which maximizes muscle fiber recruitment. Now all you have to do is take each set to failure to stimulate maximum muscle growth.

See my video below to see the depth and constant tension I employ to generate a much higher level of muscle fiber activation. Another benefit is that with a partial movement, you can use heavier weights and overload the muscle even more.

 

 

YOU SHOULD STILL USE FLAT BARBELL BENCH PRESSES

 

Yes flat barbell bench presses are a part of the THT training program. They scored just 2% lower than a flat dumbbell bench – 87% to 85%.

You’ll find them in the exercise bank list of recommended exercises for when you want and/or need to switch things up. I recommend making these changes between every 10-wk THT training cycle.

 

chestblast480If you have at least a year’s training experience under your belt, I highly recommend you check out my Chest Blast Workout. This training package includes advanced techniques you’ve never used or even heard of before.

My “guinea pigs” achieved results ranging from 0.5″ to 3 inches in a short period of time (see here for full list of results). It involves a MASSIVE jump in intensity – beyond anything you’ve ever experienced. I call it “hyperintensity”.

 


 

NOTE: I just wanted to remind you all that you can track and log your THT workouts using a free app called Bodyspace. Just download it on any device and search for THT or MuscleHacker. To ensure it’s the official THT routine that I have uploaded, make sure it’s by username: MuscleHacker.

 

skip-la-courInterestingly…and this is awesome…I recently interviewed Skip La Cour for a new MuscleHack podcast. Yes, THE Skip La Cour.

We went through each body part to discuss the most effective exercises and for the most part he picked dumbbell movements. I won’t tell you any more right now as I want you to listen to the full podcast…coming later this week!
