If you’re struggling with growing your pectoralis (chest), you’re not alone.

A lot of people mistakenly perform way too many exercises, with too light weight and too many reps, all with improver form.

Sure, light weights can give you some growth, but if you’re not stimulating your muscles with more stress than they’re used to, they’ll not grow.

So what you can keep in mind as a guide is to train your chest 1-3 days per week (depending on your fitness level), and 2-5 different exercises. Choose some you like and STICK to them. Don’t jump around every workout changing them up, trying to “confuse” your muscles. You’ll only confuse yourself. Stick to a couple of compound exercises (like the barbell bench press) and a few accessory exercises (like the low-to-high cable flyer), and get better at those specific exercises so you can increase the weight over-time. 2-6 sets with 6-15 reps are great guidelines.

I love the low-to-high cable flyes as an accessory exercise.
