Common Chest Training Mistakes You Might Be Making

1. Performing too many exercises
Don’t burn yourself out doing pec-dec flys in an effort to get a ‘defined’ chest. It won’t happen. Stick to the essential moves: dumbbell bench press, barbell bench press, dips and push-ups.

2. Lifting too much weight
For the most steady progress, add the smallest amount you can each session. In most gyms, this means two one-kilo plates, making two extra kilos total.

3. Poor bench press form
Always tuck your elbows close to your sides on the descent and touch the bar to the lower part of your sternum. This technique works really well for guys with long arms.
