As long as you give yourself enough rest(3 days) in between your chest workouts it should be okay. I've been training my chest twice a week for awhile now and have seen some gains, so I can't knock it. My chest is my weakest body part (visually) so I decided to give it extra attention which has paid off so far, for me.

Everyone is different. It may work for one person but not the other. But imo it's worth a try.

Chest workout 1
Benchpress 3x10
Incline benchpress 3x10
Weighted Dips 3x10

Chest workout 2
Flat Dumbbell press 3x10
Incline Dumbbell press 3x10
Decline Barbell press 3x10

By switching it up every workout my body doesn't get use to one particular workout. Which I believe has helped me get gains in my chest. Just a suggestion.

Look up the 1,000 calorie workout on youtube. I've been doing it every other day, and I already lost 3/4 of an inch off my waist in one week.

You basically burn 1,000 calories in about an hour.

Absolutely not!

You guys should really listen to Layne Norton, 3 DMJ team etc... natural bodybuilders. Way too many beginners and average fitness guys follow workout plans and diets of bodybuilders who use steroids and understandable they are quiet about it since it's illegal. And people who follow them think they will achieve similar results but the truth is far different since steroids change everything in your body.


-focus on complex exercises, isolation exercises as finesse at the end
-don't kill your muscles every time when training, remember, more is not better, better is better
-work for strength, strong muscle is also big muscle(not Coleman big, but above average big which is what majority wants?)
-Squats, deadlifts, bench press, dips, pull ups, chin ups, bent rows,... you can do it all more than just once per week! just be careful with volume and frequency
-even if you're trying to lose weight, do not avoid carbs as it has become some kind of fashion nowadays. Just reduce all the 3 macronutrients to the point where you burn more than you eat and you'll start losing fat
-do not exaggerate with protein, too much protein is converted into glucose anyway so why eat expensive protein when carbs are much cheaper?

Decided to try and get some muscle on my torso. I want a little bit of abs and pecks. Not bulging or anything, but something so I can take my shirt off and feel good about myself. Right now I'm just flat nothing. So hopefully it won't take too terribly long.

im trying to gain muscle mass and so far its been good ( 3 months ) but i feel like my chest is the weakest part both visually and physically
what can really go wrong here, except for injuries? surely i cant lose the little chest muscle i have because of more exercising?

100 push ups
100 sit ups
100 body squats
10 pull ups

Working in the office a bit more these days so I have time to work out. Gym was hella packed and I hate working out in packed gym.

Completed this work out^^I don't have a weight assisted pull up machine so I can only do so much.

I've changed up my routine quite a bit. I was already focusing on compound movements heavily, but now I'm doing near 10 reps of heavy compound movements at the start of my time in the gym for 3-5 reps.

Power cleans have to be my favorite exercise at the moment. Hadn't done them on a regular basis in forever, and now enjoying them again. Not doing a weight I'm too proud of on them at the moment, but I'm sure it will catch up to the rest of my lifts slowly.

Couldn't be bothered doing weighted pull ups last night, so I tried doing typewriter pull ups for the first time in a while. Were a lot easier than the last time I tried.

Video above for those who don't know what it is. They're quite fun actually.

I decided that since its the New Year, ill start off with the basics of bodyweight, but damn after doing this, i feel humbled.

The Kneeling PUs werent really a problem but i couldnt believe i found myself struggling a but with pulling off 10 strict inverted rows, and theyre just Step 2 in the Pull-Up series.

In case anyone's interested, here's a little update:

I miss doing barbell moves. This Convict Conditioning feels good though. I've traded some of my fat for muscle using it and I feel stronger, but in a different way than from when I hit the bar. Both really good feelings though.

I think the biggest plus for me so far is that the soreness I get in my anterior shoulder from doing high-rep pushing movements has noticeably decreased. Even hitting just 25 push-ups used to kill it before, but now it's nothing really to me (although it is a bit important to keep in my mind that I have not let myself progress to full push-ups yet based on the book's philosophy).

It's also made me realize though that I suck at pulls. I've been stuck at inverted rows ever since I started. From starting out struggling to do 10 strict, I'm now struggling with 15. I noticed though that I pull too much with my arms. If any of you guys have any more tips to activating my back muscles, I'd be happy to hear them. Ever since I tried working Pavel's high tension techniques into them though, it's been easier, but I still feel that my arms are getting the brunt of the tension, which I don't think is helping me.

You seem to take your lifting seriously, so I doubt there is much more I could tell you that you already don't know for pulls. Do you pinch your shoulders back? Chest up?
What I've found that works well is tensing and touching the muscle I'm supposed to be working out helps if I feel that the secondary muscles are taking too much load.
