Workouts that include dedicated chest routines will improve your upper body strength, posture, and confidence. Working out the chest means working out the pectoral muscles, better known as the “pecs.” While the pecs are the largest muscles in the chest, there are actually several smaller muscles that support the pectoral muscles, on the sides of the chest and the trapezius muscle around the shoulders. Functional movements such as pushing, throwing and swinging require healthy pectoral muscles. Developed pecs also support good posture and lifted breasts. Many women shy away from chest-specific exercises because they think their breasts will decrease in size. They seem to be based on some misguided notions about strength training in general.
Reasons to Strengthen Your Chest:
- It’s important to strengthen your chest because it helps keep your upper-body muscles in balance, which improves your posture. These two things decrease stress and tension on your muscles and bones. That makes you less injury-prone.
- The advantage of good chest exercise is growing your bosom because there are a couple of chest exercises, which when done right and religiously, will help you add some mass and bulk to your bosoms.
- A well-developed chest gives you plenty of functional strength, it can help lift and fill out the appearance of the upper body. The coveted center “chest line” is a true badge of a strong and fit woman.
- The chest muscles are responsible for moving the arms across the body and up and down, as well as other movements like flexion, adduction, and rotation. Most chest exercises will involve pushing the arms away from the body or the body away from the arms.
- Many variations for each chest exercise by changing the movement, the angle and/or the type of resistance; you’ll recruit different muscle fibers and challenge your body in new ways.
