My Weighted Chest Workout

Yesterday I posted the push-up routine that I do when I want to hit the upper, middle, and lower parts of my chest. I also mentioned in that post that I would post my weighted chest workout. See below for that workout.

Like I did with my push-up routine I created a chest workout from another Athlean-X video. Unlike my push-up routine, this workout follows the suggested exercises in the video more closely. I suggest watching the video to get Jeff’s explanation on why the workout has been created this way and for examples of how to do the exercises included correctly.

Here is my weighted chest workout goes:

Perform as Dropsets

  • Barbell Bench Press – 4 Sets x 6, 8, 10, 12
  • Incline Bench Press – 4 Sets x 6, 8, 10, 12
  • High to Low Cable or Band Crossovers – 4 Sets x 15
  • Weighted Pushups – 3 Sets to Failure

A couple of notes:

I use a band on the crossovers because I do not have the proper equipment in my home to use the weighted equivalent.
For the weighted push-ups I have an old bookbag I load up with weights.

As always, find your groove and do what’s right for you. This is just what I’ve developed for me on my journey to being fit.
