I always enjoy when I change my workouts around. Doing so every three weeks seems to work well for me. Last night I worked my chest, and decided to go back to an “all dumbbell” workout that I used during last year’s bulk with very good results. The only non-dumbbell exercise in this routine is the cable crossover work that I use to finish off my chest at the end of my workout.

CHEST
4 x 12 Flat dumbbell bench press
4 x 12 Incline dumbbell bench press
4 x 12 Decline dumbbell bench press
4 x “Burnout” Cable cross-over (upper chest)

I know some people are not big on decline presses, but I find that the decline press is a great exercise for hitting the lower pecs. I really do believe that form is critical – not only for muscle development, but also for injury prevention. I wrote an article earlier this month in which I discuss some of the tips and techniques that I’ve used to help develop my chest. If you missed it, here it is.
