Welcome to Day 5 in our 12-day December workout series, “12 Days of Fitness”! Today’s workout is one of my favorites… chest day! Guys- who doesn’t want a cut, defined, and ripped-out chest? Ladies, keep “things” where they should be… we’ll leave it at that (also, as a mother to 3 young kids my wife has expressed appreciation for a strong upper-body!). Try these 5 moves for a firmer, tighter chest!
Miss the first 5 days?
Hands out wider than your shoulders
Beginner Version Advanced Version (make sure your chairs are sturdy!)
Alternating Shuffle Push-Up
Start in a push-up position. Go down primarily over your right hand. While down (at the midpoint), shift weight to the left hand and push up from here. Next rep is going down on the left hand and performing the move in reverse.
Diamond Push Up
Touch your index fingers and your thumbs (forming a diamond) and perform push-ups
Floor flies (hardwood floor or paper plate)
I LOVE this exercise!!! Totally NUKES the chest muscles! On hardwood or tile floor, start in push-up position with rags under your hands. Slide your hands wide apart to lower your chest to the floor. Use your chest to pull your hands back together. You can do this on your knees to modify it. Use paper plates on carpet if there’s no hardwood/tile available.
You’re 1/3 of the way done!!!
Try to get through 2 more sets of each exercise!!
What’s your go-to chest move?
