My name is Skip La Cour; I am a 6-time national champion, drug-free bodybuilder. You can learn how to improve your bodybuilding and training efforts by visiting my websites skiplacour.com, manformation.com, massmachinenutrition.com. And today I'm going to talk to you about bodybuilding. Today I want to talk about a basic chest workout. There are five different variables that you want to consider when you are constructing a chest workout. Whether you are going to use a barbell during the exercise, or a set of dumbbells during the exercise, and the angle of the bench: Whether it's going to be flat, at an incline, or at a decline. You want to shoot for four exercises during a basic chest routine, and with those four exercises you should use about six to eight sets. Here's an example of a chest workout: Barbell flat bench press, 2 sets. Dumbbell bench presses on an inclined bench, 2 sets. Declined bench press with a barbell, 1 set. And flys, one set. Now there are many different chest routines, you can go to my website: SkipLaCour.com for more, or look for my featured articles on BodyBuilding.com. So, that's a basic chest workout routine.
