Surely, your routine includes strengthening exercises including chest exercises. How is it important? What are the chest strengthening exercises that you can do to improve and build strong chest muscles? Let’s take a look!

Importance of Chest Exercises

Chest exercises are important not only to flex out a great look of your physique but it plays an important role especially with your daily movements. Chest muscles have two (2) essential parts of what is called Pectoral Muscles:

    • Pectoralis Major: a large muscle that has 2 parts – an upper and lower portion – which looks like a thick, fan-shaped muscle attached to the upper arm and across the chest and collarbone
  • Pectoralis Minor: a lot smaller than major and it goes from the shoulder blade to the rib cage

Benefits of Chest Exercises

Chest exercises help train your pectoral muscles to improve your strength in your back muscles and help you be stronger in movements where pressing is required. It also gives you a lot of benefits such as:

  • Improved Posture: as it helps you stabilize your shoulders and its joints;
  • Breathing Better: since these muscles are attached to your ribs, it helps in the strength and mobility of your rib cage which expands properly in every breath taken;
  • Better Breast Support: by improving and building your chest muscle, it helps you to provide more lift and support;
  • Daily Perks: is given to us when we improve our chest muscles. Daily activities mostly involve lifting, holding, squeezing, pressing, pushing and others and when you have improved pecs, it will no longer hurt to give a little extra strength in the chest muscles group.
