Intense Chest Workout For Women

Workout Description

I have a great quick chest routine ~ takes you to exhaustion but is quick and complete workout.  Will need partners to help.

Peels – Peels are also known as drop sets. After your first set for an exercise, have your partner “peel off” weight, and immediately perform another set without resting. You need at least 5 plates on each side – 1 (from each side) will be removed for each set of reps. You will perform peels for all listed sets of:

  • Incline Bench Press
  • Barbell Bench Press
  • Decline Bench Press

For each of these exercises, you will perform 5 total sets. The first set is your heaviest set of 4 reps. Peel off weight and immediately perform an 8 rep set. Continue this drop set pattern until you are finished with your last set of 20 reps, then move on to the next exercise.

Will need a spotter and a person on each side of bar to remove plates.  make sure to rest between different exercises.

Dumbbell and Barbell Volume

Workout Description

These workouts are part of a training series I am putting together to provide lifters with some new, interesting and fun muscle building choices. While the other chest workouts here at Muscle & Strength are highly effective when coupled with progressive resistance, it is often nice to take a mental break and try something different.

Each of these 4 chest workouts are fairly intense. I would recommend running them for 8-12 weeks at a time, then taking a complete week off from training. From there you can try a new approach, or choose to stick with something that is working well.

Keep in mind that no matter which workout approach you use, overload must be part of the equation. Use as much weight as you can for each listed set, and add weight when it makes sense.
