How to Get a Bigger Chest Fast (JUST DO THIS!)


Are you tired of struggling to build a bigger chest? Well, you’re in luck! In this article, we will reveal two simple tips that can help you grow your chest fast. Whether you’re a gym enthusiast or just starting out, these techniques can make a significant difference in your chest development. So, let’s dive right into it!

Tips for Dominating Chest Workouts

1. Raise Your Sternum

When performing chest exercises, it’s crucial to ensure that your chest muscles are doing most of the work. Unfortunately, many people unintentionally allow their shoulders to take over, hindering chest growth. To prevent this, focus on raising your sternum during each rep. By making your sternum more prominent, you’ll activate your chest muscles more effectively. So, remember to lift that sternum high!

2. Press Through the Inside of Your Hand

Another key adjustment you need to make is to press through the inside of your hand during chest exercises. Leading with your index finger and thumb allows your chest to dominate the movement, reducing the involvement of your shoulders. This hand positioning not only optimizes your arm and shoulder alignment but also facilitates better chest activation. So, let your fingers lead the way to a bigger chest!

Applying the Tips to Your Workouts

Dumbbell Bench Press

During a dumbbell bench press, lie down on the bench and focus on raising your sternum towards the ceiling. Retract your shoulders, allowing your chest to take center stage. As you press the dumbbells up, tilt them slightly by leading with your thumb and index finger. This technique will ensure maximum chest engagement throughout the exercise.

Cable Crossover

When performing cable crossovers, start by squaring up and emphasizing your chest in front of your shoulders. Keep your sternum raised to maintain proper form as you bring your arm out and across your body. Just like in the previous exercise, lead with the inside of your grip to minimize shoulder involvement and maximize chest activation.


Yes, these two adjustments apply to pushups too! As you lower your body towards the ground, imagine attacking it with your sternum, maintaining a strong chest position. You can even try hand-release pushups, where you lift your hands momentarily at the bottom of each rep. When pushing yourself back up, press through the inside of your hands, similar to the other chest exercises. This will ensure that your chest muscles are doing the majority of the work.

The Mistake to Avoid

Often, individuals struggling to build a big chest make the same mistake repeatedly. This is especially true for lanky and skinny individuals with different body proportions. Allowing your shoulders to overcompensate during chest exercises reduces the workload on your chest, stunting its growth potential. By implementing these two techniques in your chest workouts, you’ll create an optimal environment for chest development and start seeing results faster.

Take Action and Get a Bigger Chest Fast!

Now that you know the secrets to building a bigger chest, it’s time to put them into action. Remember to raise your sternum and press through the inside of your hand during chest exercises. By doing so, you’ll optimize chest engagement, leading to faster and more noticeable growth.

Remember, consistency is key, and the results will follow. Stay dedicated, stay motivated, and never skip chest day!
