The best beginner chest workout is for anyone who is new to fitness and wants to start building a firm chest. We’ll go over the basic exercises and tell you how to fit them together. This workout can be done at the gym or at home if you have a bench and a barbell or dumbbells.

Even though the main part of your chest is seen as one muscle, we make a difference in the upper, middle and lower part. Since there aren’t much exercises that give all the parts the same amount of attention, we’ll go over exercises that targets on of these specific areas.

Beginner Chest Workout - Incline Dumbbell Press

Upper Chest

Training your upper chest will give you more volume and firmness on the top of your chest. This part needs more attention if your shoulders are sticking out more than your chest. You train your upper chest by doing Incline presses, either with a barbell or dumbbells. If your looking for a exercise witthout weight try doing push-ups with you feet on a higher surface.

Middle Chest

Training the middle of your chest is neccessary for general development of your chest. This won’t give a specific part of your chest a boost but your entire chest. Training this by doing normal push-ups or the bench press.

Wait… there we’re only three part to the chest right? True but most of the exercise stated above won’t give enough emphasize on the part where your chest muscles connect to each other, because they don’t need a full range motion from your chest. That’s why cable crossovers are essential to every (beginner) chest workout.
