3 Easy Tips for Building a Big Chest Fast

1 – Pack the shoulders tight during the bench press to isolate the chest more

Don’t think of it as arching your chest up but pulling your shoulders back.

2 – Spend more time under tension

Sometimes, when you complete the range of motion in exercises like the incline dumbbell fly, your muscles aren’t active at the top as there’s no tension.

Instead, you can stop just before the muscle stops working and come back down to keep the tension on the chest throughout the whole rep.

3 – Remember the triceps are important

If you want to build your numbers up but have hit a plateau, what might be stopping you is perhaps not your chest but your triceps.

Building size and strength in the triceps by isolating them can help you develop a bigger chest because strong triceps allow you to push more, which means you can add greater numbers to your lifts without your arms holding you back.
