An Insane Exercise That Builds A MASSIVE Chest!

I hesitate to even write this article for 3 reasons...

One, because it's one of my SECRET weapons for building a massive chest;

Two, I've historically saved it for the EXCLUSIVE privilege of my clients in the Optimum Anabolics Program (; and

Three, because any knucklehead who doesn't follow my instructions to the letter could SERIOUSLY injure himself!

With that said, I'm going to throw caution to the wind and let you in on one of the most advanced chest building exercises you'll ever use.

But I MUST warn you...

It breaks one of the most important safety rules of working out (although I'll show you a safe way around this later on)!

Well, here goes...

My guess is that you're currently busting your ass on the flat and incline bench presses, pressing the bar up in the air from mid-chest level, in an attempt to really pack on some mass to your pecs.

But have you ever heard of pressing to the NECK ?

OUCH ! Just thinking of that bar crashing down on my Adam's apple makes me want to dial 9-1-1 .

But first let's discuss the benefits of this popular exercise from the master of muscle, Vince Gironda, and then I'll tell you how to avoid having to dust off your will.

Your pectoralis major actually is made up of four separate divisions which require different movements to effectively train them.

While the regular bench press can target the mid-chest area pretty well, it falls short of expectation in developing the upper and interior chest regions.

Failure to properly train these areas can mean a poorly developed chest due to uneven growth.

On the other hand, performing a flat bench pressing movement to the NECK area actually forces your UPPER and INTERIOR , as well as EXTERIOR regions of your chest to pull together like never before in a team effort to REALLY pack on the mass!
