How to plan exercise to target the chest
Regularly exercise all muscle groups.
Lower body muscles:(leg muscles, glute muscles, calf muscles)
Upper body muscles:(chest muscles, back muscles, arm muscles)
Core muscles :(Abdominal muscles)
Give your chest muscles at least 2 days/48 hours of rest between chest targeting exercises.
Muscles need time to recover
When we don't let our muscles recover properly we increase the changes of injury
When using resistance (weight/bands):
High repetitions (12 or more) with low weight.
Our goal is to lose fat, not build muscle
12 or more repetitions are ideal for fat loss
Types of cardiovascular exercises that can be done
This full-body workout is fun to do while burning a lot of calories! In about 20 minutes you can burn about 200 calories (that's roughly a candy bar!)
Plyometrics gets your whole body moving with jumping exercises and other quick powerful movements!
Swimming is a low impact, total body cardio workout. The density of the water provides a constant resistance.
Dancing offers a full body workout that can be tuned to your favorite style. Its a fun way to get yourself moving.
Cycling is another lower impact exercise to add in to your day. Take your bike to the store rather than driving to get yourself moving!
