Have you ever wondered what the absolute best muscle-building movements for your chest are? Wonder no more! Here are our top 14 pec-building picks.
There are dozens of exercises you can do on chest day. In fact, the Bodybuilding.com Exercise Database lists at least 84, but you probably don’t want to spend a Monday afternoon—or several Mondays—trying them all. You just want to know the best exercises for building a muscular chest, no questions asked. We’ve done the work for you, and found the top 14.
Mind you, this list doesn’t correlate to the hardest chest exercises. It’s focused on the best-of-the-best mass builders, with a little bit of instruction and explanation to complement each choice. You can swap exercises in your current routine for these choices, build your own chest workout with a handful of them, or just try one when your standard chest workout gets stale.
Without further ado, here are our top 14 chest-building exercises, ranked in no particular order.
