Yeaa. Well I mean. I would like to gain muscle too. Don’t get me wrong.
So what I have gotten so far is to work my whole chest. Ok, gotcha. Inclined sit ups also.
Do push ups with a wide stance or inclined help? How about dips or dipping push ups? Or Diamond push ups.
For my sit ups I was going to start off inclined and then hold some free weights after a while to help give me more resistance.
Any of this sound good? Suggestions?[/quote]
For situps you gotta think of the bench in terms of your body. It’s declined Anyhow you could probably start with a plate right away like 25 or 35 or whatever works. Make sure to clasp it to your chest. If you’re holding it off it gives you leverage at the top of the movement.
As for chest, yes work it all. Do incline bench, flat bench (barbell and dumbbell every once in a while) and dips are good to throw in every few workouts. Doing dips and then bringing yourself to fatigue with some bench sets is something I’ve started doing and it seems to work nicely. Make sure not to neglect the incline bench though. The clavical part of your pectoralis starts about 2/3 up from the bottom ridge and goes to your collar bone. It’s a big space that if neglected will make it look like you have saggy boobs! (a bit overdramatized but just do your incline)
You don’t have to, but you could alternate between deadlifts and decline ab work. You’ll get a good back and leg workout as well as hitting the abs. I usually don’t feel my abs the next day or anything but I don’t do any direct ab work and they’ve gotten more defined and bigger since I started deadlifting.
