            Most women think that chest workouts are reserved for the male muscle machines in the weight room. Mistake! As I’ve explained in other workouts- women can’t expect to get results if they stick to spot training.  If you want an overall toned look you have to embark on chest exercises for women. No, we aren’t going to do it all huffing and puffing like the Adams in our midst.  We do it a bit more stylish and toned down, but definitely not abandoning them! Strengthening the chest muscle will have a domino effect on the rest of your body.  You will find that all other upper body workouts will soon become much easier!

            Making chest exercises for women part of your regular workout routine can help firm your chest and improve the appearance of sagging skin to gracefully compliment your neckline in any outfit. Women and men have similarities and differences in the chest area. The obvious difference is that women have breast tissue which is largely composed of fat. The similarity is they have chest muscles underneath the breast tissue. These are called the pectorals. The main objective with chest exercises for women is to give the breasts a perky look and keep them lifted.

            The benefits aren’t limited to esthetic appearance. Women stand to gain big benefits if they incorporate weight and resistance training to challenge chest muscles and other major parts of the body. Resistance training builds lean muscle mass, which women lose naturally as they age, and strengthen bones, which reduces the risk of osteoporosis.

            We need to chat about my good friend, PUSHUP! We didn’t initially have a good relationship going until I’ve realized that the pushup is an amazing bodyweight exercise with wonderful variations, requiring no equipment, building overall upper body strength. Push-ups work the biceps and triceps; they strengthen the core, chest and shoulder muscles.  So, if you want stunning, toned arms- become a fan of pushups!  Don’t think of a pushup as your enemy, think of it as your training buddy!  Focus on a high quality friendship. Rather do fewer quality, controlled pushups than mediocre ones.

            I do chest exercises for women once a week and combine it with excellent multi joint exercises to boost my metabolism and improve overall cardiovascular fitness and strength.

            If you want a spectacular, fit look, do a “Chestacular” workout which will add to YOU, radiating wellness and fitness!
