Building a massive chest is no rocket science! Just the right exercise form and you can do whatever you want to have. Here we will take you down to basics, using the varied patterns and rep ranges to target fiber in every pec and bring out the maximum growth. 

Biceps and chest are the two muscle kinds which are little troublesome developing and that guys are fond to develop. Biceps however are smaller muscles that take an unwarranted time and work to develop. The pecs are however larger and stronger than the biceps but in most cases start from almost nothing.

Doesn’t matter how weak and small your chest is, you can definitely build the macho chest that you really wanted!

Adding size requires you to focus on the most basic lifting equipment in the gym: dumbbells, barbells and benches. Follow the 5 simple but effective moves to have a massive chest.

  • Exercise 1: Barbell Bench Press


It is the ultimate muscle-builder. As for the exercise pattern, 3 sets of 20, 15, 10 reps must be followed. Use first set of 20 reps as a warm-up set. As you move on, perform only 10 reps but with a weight heavy enough to test your nerve. Just not count the reps here, instead drive yourself and fatigue the muscles in real.

  • Exercise 2: Incline Barbell Bench Press


It emphasizes the upper chest thus scoring the more rounded look in your pecs. Just pick up an exigent weight and hit the first 10-12 reps of first set. While with the second set, bring your muscles to failure with a weight harder than the capacity. Just be sure of dropping elbows before shoulders as you perform each rep and squeeze the pecs thus throughout.

  • Exercise 3: Flat Dumbbell Fly


It helps you have a greater muscle fibre amount across your chest than some pressing exercise and perk up the link between mind & muscle. Perform 2 sets of flat fly, with the first set having 10-12 reps. In the second set, go to the level where you reach failure again. Don’t just worry about banging the weights together. Keep this slow and controlled.

  • Exercise 4: Bar Dip


Bar dip is a real underrated and forgotten exercise. It generally focuses on lower portion and really beat and isolates the chest. 3 sets of failure are crafted in this workout. Drop the weights as low as you can and tug yourself halfway up while hitting your feet back and keeping your body ahead as much as possible.

  • Exercise 5: Push-Up


This is just the one body weight chest exercise to rule all. This workout will thus prove to complete the package. Do as many as you can and rest in between if needed, and continue travelling the gain train. Do in whatever fashion you want to, as long as you complete 100 reps and burn the muscle out.

Everything you do will give you the desired output if done in right pattern. Ultimate workouts for big chest have been just discussed and just remember, we aid you with the best. So just keeping checking us and yourself too after the routine! Share us back your high and low!


  1. Hi,
    I don’t really like how my chest is developing.
    It looks a little weird
    The shape of the left is completely different from the right and is more filled.
    The right is wider but less filled.But it looks better than the left.
    They’re both empty in the “inner” chest,
    It’s not growing at all.
    This is my seventh week of training.
    I Dumbbell Bench Press,Incline Dumbbell Bench Press and dips.
    I know we are not perfectly symmetrical,but what can I do to rebalance the situation and developing a wide full chest???


    • Yes Lucka,
      Slow chest growth is probably the issue I’m most often asked about, haha. This is definitely the most common genetic weak point, and really just takes time and hard work to get through. In my opinion, it takes 1-2 years to build what we would consider a solid chest, and 3-4 to build an awesome chest.

      Don’t be discouraged by that though. As long as your diet is right and you’re getting stronger each month, your chest WILL grow. It just grows slower than most people prefer.

      Regarding the imbalance, it will usually resolve with proper training. Let’s give it 6-7 months and see. If, after that time, it’s still an issue, we can address it with some extra sets for the lagging parts.

      What do you think?

      My pleasure for everything. 🙂 Talk soon!


  2. Really I loved the way you showed us all the workout routines for chest and I think that chest muscles are one of the biggest muscles in our body and I guess the flat bench press is the best exercise to build the chest muscles.I just want to give you a big thumb up for the excellent information. I’ll be returning to your web site for more soon.

  3. I do agree with all the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are too short for newbies. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

    • Hello Braink,

      Thank you for your comment , I hope it’s really helpful to you. I will keep your advice and will try to post with full explanation. Keep in touch for more updates.


  4. Hi,
    Your description for the bench press setup is great. Wished I had known about it earlier as it would have prevented my shoulder injury!
    I wanted to know whether the same setup applies to the dumbell press, both flat and incline. As in elbow angle, squeezing shoulder blades and pushing out the chest.


    • Thanks, Robert! I’m glad it’s helpful.

      Yup, the setup for the dumbbell press should follow the same principles.

  5. Hi,

    I like to start with incline just because a lot of guys are focused on building not just their chest in general, but the upper chest in particular. It’s completely fine to start with flat bench 🙂

    Start your workout with whatever you want to give priority to. I hope this helps!

  6. Hey,

    What do you recommend I do after 8 weeks of this chest program. Can I build a massive chest by continuing this program for a year?
