Todays 16 Set Chest Workout

I wish I could update this every day, but I just don’t have the time. So, over the weekend I trained deltoids (Saturday), arms (Sunday), back (Monday), with an emphasis on strengthening the lower back and yesterday, Tuesday was all about HIIT to burn more fat.

My HIIT workout comprised of 4 sets of 4 exercises of kettle bell movements (or torture bells, as I like to now call them), then I moved on to bodyweight exercises for another 4 sets – burpees, mountain climbers, jumping squats and skipping. I’ve started doing a lot of skipping recently, its a good ‘all-rounder’ and it burns heaps of calories.

The Best Chest Workout I’ve Done!

  • 16 sets
  • Incline dumbbell press
  • Flat machine hammer press
  • Adjusting incline to flat dumbbell flyes
  • Cable dips

I’m sure I’ve said it about a chest workout before, but I have to say todays was awesome. There were no variables to how I normally train – Get up, prepare my daughters sandwiches for lunch, take her to school, and TRAIN.

5 – 10 minute warm up on exercise bike. Ten second stretches for upper body muscle groups. One warm up on each exercise, two for the start exercise.

Then 3 sets pyramid up to my maximum weight for 10 reps.

Final set was a 20 rep set with a reduced weight.


Chest pumped. Minimal rest between sets to keep blood flowing and calories burning.
