While most of the guys prefer joining gyms for their bodybuilding programme, a few also try to do it at home due to the fact that they do not find enough time to go to gym or perhaps they do not have gym near their homes. A few guys cannot afford heavy gym fees and hence try to do bodybuilding at home. When we talk about bodybuilding, perhaps the most important thing we look at is the chest building. I will explain below a few good exercises which can bring excellent results for chest building at home:
1- Most important chest building exercise is push-ups. You can perform it easily with your hands either on ground or at any elevated area. Put your hands down with your arms straight. Now you slowly take your chest down with all weight on your arms/hands and slowly bend your arms. When your chest is only a few inches above the ground or the surface, you slowly lift it with your elbows locked i.e they should not move sideways. You can decrease the distance between the hands to increase weight which will result in high intensity training.
2- Lifting dumbbells is again a good exercise for chest building. You can lie on bench and hold weights in both the hands with your arms straight upwards. Now you slowly bring the weights down towards chest with your elbows perpendicular to the direction of the arms. You need to lower the weight till your elbows become at a lower level than your shoulders. You can gradually add weights to increase intensity level of your exercise.
3- Backward dips are also good. You can stand between the two parallel bars and lift yourself up by putting hands on bars and lifting yourself up gradually. Once you are up, you need to lower your body in the same way till your elbows become perpendicular to your direction of motion.
This chest building plan can really help you a great deal to build your muscles and get a great chest.
