The Pectoralis Major

The Pecs, Pectoral Muscles, Breast Muscles, “good man boobs.”  It’s the initial impression of strength if you have definition of this muscle.  It’s the 1st judgement of upper body strength.

If you’re a woman you can build this muscle too, it just all depends on how far you take exercising this muscle I suppose. But it’s good to have upper body strength in this area regardless.

Now the question is, can you get a larger chest muscles from performing calisthenic exercises? And, which calisthenic exercises help build muscle and strength for the chest?

Maybe you don’t have equipment at home or the money to afford the gym to work on your chest, so what do you do?

The simple answer is: Calisthenic Push Ups!  Try all the various forms of the push up you can to work the inner, upper, lower parts of the chest.

Other exercises such as Chest Dips also help build chest strength.

As with all calisthenic exercises, you will benefit many other muscles indirectly which will help sculpt and shape your body into a much more natural physique!  Push ups are one of the best exercises which target other muscles in synergy. Do them and be rewarded!

Makes your push up an even better natural exercise allowing natural rotation of your hands and arms using The Perfect Pushup.  Allows you to go lower for a deeper strength training chest workout. As quoted, “The unique rotating handles helps speed up results by engaging more muscles in the arms, chest, shoulders, and back”

Chest day is a great day.


Good luck!
