How many times do you workout chest?

  1. How many times do you workout chest?


    I do it once a week. 2 times if I am on something but wide spread.


  2. I try to get it once every 4 days. Sometimes i have to make it every 5 days. Depending on my work schedule...Sometimes it is only once a week. My routine is flexible to go along with my work schedule.

    Ya I was thinking of doing that too, every 4 days, you think it's enough for it to recover for the next workout? I'm under the impression it takes at least 5-7 days for the muscle to fully recover and repair itself.

  4. If you're like 99.9999999999999999% of people I see in the Gym, you train chest every 2-3 days. But that's all you train, and all you do is flat bench, and all you worry about is how strong your flat bench is....

  5. Every 4 days for me also. So some weeks once and some twice.

  6. Once a week. X-factor wouldn't allow me to do it more often than that.

    Ya I see those guys all the time. I do everything but I was curious since my chest seems to recover a lot faster than everything else so I figure why not do an extra few exercises 4 days later. My legs I leave for a full 7 day rest since i kill them.

    Yeah, I wasn't aiming it at you. I know AM members are the exception to the rule. I just get frustrated when people base your overall strength and even your fighting ability on how much you can bench.

    Tell me about it. I can still get great gains by lifting moderately. But unfortunately the ego of the gym is based on how much you can lift, not how your body is defined. I do admit I fall to that once and a while, only when I see guys my age go there.

    I agree with that. The DOMS with X-factor are bad. Once a week as well when i was taking x-factor.

  11. I train chest 2-3 times a week. The same with the rest of the muscles.
    I don't get why you would train chest once a week, when your chest stops growing after 48 hours after training? -_-

    I also train chest 2-3 times a week. With proper diet/supps this should be no problem, I feel that once a week is not enough. When I do once a week it is only to maintain.

  13. This is a very hard question to answer because how many times you do something is misleading. The problem i faced and just about everyone else faces is that they need to thrash a muscle everytime they train it. This is not needed, no forced reps are ever necessary, and training to complete failure is something you are going to want to avoid if you want to attack a muscle twice a week. A chest routine i would probably try and do if i was going to do it would be something like this.

    workout A
    incline barbell 5x5
    flys 2x10

    workout B
    dumbell bench 3x10
    incline flys 2x10

    If you are going to do something like this you should probably get away from bodypart splits.

  14. I train my chest 3 times per week, but I also do full body workouts. I only do 2-3 exercises on my chest per workout and rarely do more than 2 sets per exercise. But this is just what I've found works best for me.

    Same here. I train full body 3X/week, and as long as I keep volume in check, I can train it hard all three workouts and still recover with no problem.

  16. i hit my chest once a week with a good hard workout, but then again genetics did my chest right

  17. Genetics hit me with a puffy chest, but not a defined chest. I hit it 1X a week, sometimes two if the scheduling comes out that way (I.E. a Monday and a Saturday...or Sunday and Saturday in same week).

    Routine is usually
    Dumbells - incline
    Dumbells - flat
    Dumbells - Decline (1x a month)
    Flat bench press
    Butterfly machine
    Butterflys with cables

  18. Every 5th day I tried all types of routines that is the best. Think of yourself as a starting pitcher

  19. for me once a week is plenty.

  20. 5 times a week along with biceps....Duh! Actually just once a week along with back day.....

  21. i worked on chest using only dumbells and smith machine for 3months.. now this month i started using only dumbells and straight bar... nice gains!!
    im currently on arnolds workout plan.. each bodypart 3 times a week,... followed by a 1 on 1 off for the next week.

  22. So right now I train chest once a week. four, sometimes five exercises in a session. If I were to hit my chest more than once a week I should cut the amount of exercises? Same for other body parts?

  23. I was using DC's rest-pause program and doing chest twice a week for about four months. Then the gains stopped so I backed it down to once a week with 10x10. This will be my fourth week on that routine so next week I will be going back to rest-pause which puts me back to two workouts a week. I think you can actully lower your volume and work chest three times a week with some success as long as you don't make that your staple routine. Keep switching routines and confusing your muscles. I've even seen some crazy programs where you do chest five times in a week but the volume is super low, no rest inbetween sets and the routine lasts for only two weeks.

    youll see more gains if u work chest at least twice a week. all u need in my opinion is at least 2 days rest, then on the third day u can rise again

  25. I train 5 days a week.....and my chest on the monday and the friday.
    Im not saying its the best, or its for everybody - but im young and my body seems to regenerate pretty ****iin fast so i try to kill it on monday, and by the friday it ussually feels more than okay 2 work on again..
    then again i do take recov. supps, so i dunno
