3 quick exercises to firm the pecs

Exercise should not be a lost cause. Many times we have time on us and it eats up many of the tasks that we know should be a priority. One of them is exercise. Perhaps the best way to start doing it is to focus on one part of our body and exercise it until we start to see results. That way later the motivation to invest more time in that will be a reality.

One of those areas is the pectorals. When we exercise, we often go immediately to the legs, arms or buttocks, and the pectoral muscles are relegated to secondary exercises. If you reverse that priority table, maybe you’ll finally get through the exercises properly.

Remember that you must have discipline, perseverance in exercise and a good diet, as well as having rest days between routines are what will make you achieve your goal. When you start to see results, that motivation should lead you to exercise the rest of your body.

Push-ups are not rocket science, but they are a great challenge. Although we have all done them at some point in our lives, repeating them correctly is something that not everyone achieves. To work the pecs when you do push-ups, speed is essential. You can increase speed as your technique and condition improve.

After that push-ups can vary. Try to do the power ones, in which you take off your feet and hands from the floor and then touch it and go down completely. It’s really exhausting but functional. You can also clap your hands, which consists of raising and taking your hands off the ground, clapping your hands and going back down.

bench press

The ideal would be to have a bench like the ones in the gym, but if not, simply lying on a flat surface is enough for you to be able to raise and lower your arms until you feel the demand of the muscle. Remember that if it doesn’t hurt, it’s not working.

lateral raises

Working the chest also implies doing it on the sides. Lateral raise exercises are ideal, the best thing is that you only need dumbbells to achieve it. Instead of doing this at a high speed, it’s best to go easy, hold for several seconds when you’re at the top, go down fast, and go up slowly again.

Try to do it laterally, but do not restrict yourself from trying it with series of frontal movements to give it variation and have greater results.

These exercises can help you more than you think and just doing one of them for 20 minutes a day can give you results in just a few weeks. The pain will not go away, but it will become a motivation to start working the rest of the body.
