A hard-rock chest with six pack-abs is the ultimate combo for not only a sexy body, but also for a stronger, healthier you. We’ve suggested a lot of ab workouts, and now we’ll teach you how to add inches to your chest.

Why do you need to exercise your chest, anyway? Well, toning it will strengthen your upper body, as well as enhance posture, and promote lean muscle mass. You’re also less likely to be injured in any types of workout!

To start, here’s a very informational article – with step-by-step exercises, tips and a month-long workout – by fitness writer Myatt Murphy on Men’s Health:

Build a Bigger, Stronger Chest

Your chest is composed of two muscle groups: the pectoralis major and a smaller, deeper group called the pectoralis minor. Changing the angle of your body during classic chest exercises can challenge different parts of these muscle groups for maximum development. The anterior deltoids—the front of the shoulders–and the triceps assist your pectoral muscles. Strengthen them and you can use heavier weights for even more growth. Read more…

As you’ve read, you don’t necessarily need to work your chest out every day, just up to twice a week is fine. Just pick a day or two to focus on that body part and you’re good for the week.

Like other types of exercises, this will reduce your risk of diseases like heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancers. It’s because working out enables you to torch excess fats and calories, which are one of the reasons why most diseases target your body.

Be careful when using weight machines or other resistance equipment in the gym, especially if it’s your first time! Slowly build a workout routine, and then up your intensity and reps as your fitness level increases.

So what are you waiting for? Add inches to your chest to a sexier you, and achieve optimal health!
