The Chiseled Chest Workout

man with towel on, chest outThere are two ways to build the chest you’ve always wanted, the old way or the smart way.  The old way to build the chest is, the conventional isolation of the pectoral muscles and minimizes the involvement of the secondary muscle groups.  The smart way to build your chest is compound exercises that involve your upper body and incorporate functional core strength that will get your muscles working together.

At blackdoctor.org, we recommend the smart way to sculpt that chest your dreams.  If you are looking for size or want to be ripped to shreds, we have the workout for you.  We suggest this to be added to your workout at least twice a week, for three months, and then change up your routine.
