    how many sets do you do for chest?

    I train chest twice a week (e.g. Monday, Friday, Tuesday, Saturday, etc.).

    I experimented with different volumes, and I found I have the best gains with only 3 sets. [ of flat DBs bench] [5/7 reps]
    If I do more sets the following time I'm not fully recovered and plus I start feeling mild inflammations in the shoulders, and I can't progress.


    I think people train with many more sets?
    Perhaps they use lower intensity? (I always go as heavy as I can)



    will rep good answers.

    Fitness is not about the vanity of what you see in the mirror, but the transformation of how you feel on the inside. It is a lifestyle and process that excels oneself in all theaters of life through a mind and body connection. When you are physically fit and feel in shape, everything else in life is easier.

    Wikipedia and Greg Plitt say to do 4 sets. If youve got inflammation then take more fish oil.

    German Volume training (10x10). Half the sets at the end (for things like weighted dips) end up being sets of 5. End up doing around 3/4 exercises. (Dips, DB press, DB flies, cable flies)
    But yet again I only train everything once a week, apart from hamstrings; which I train twice.

    Still after 3 sets I'm busted, perhaps I'm lifting too heavy.



    You people doing a sh*tload of sets, what intensity do you use?
    E.g. you work with a DB but you'd be able to rep even the one above it?

    Still after 3 sets I'm busted, perhaps I'm lifting too heavy.



    You people doing a sh*tload of sets, what intensity do you use?
    E.g. you work with a DB but you'd be able to rep even the one above it?
    If i do 8 , its too light
    If i dont get at least 5/6 , its too heavy
    Long Term Goal - 80kg

    I do,

    Bench press 3 x 8-10
    Inlcine DB Press 3 x 8-10
    Incline Fly 3 x 12-16
    Flat Fly 3 x 12 - 16
    Cable Crossover 2 x 10
    Close Grip Bench Press 5 x 5

    Train chest once a week, When i first started out i read that chest is best trained once a week as it needs time to recover and repair. Always stuck by it, its worked well.

    I alternate each week between flat bench, inclince and decline (2 types a week) , Also alternate between barbell and dumbells.

    Have to say it works well for me. I have seen good progress, Get a good pump and on each excersie i can feel my chest working properly.

    There is a good routine on the super site on BB.com , Its called Bench like an animal. Did it a few years ago and got good progress, Probably going to give it another go soon.

    6 sets of 6 with the barbell and 4 sets with dumbells to failure. My chest then hurts like a biatch the next day without fail. I incorporate chest with tris and bis so I don't dedicate a whole day just to chest. Used to, but seen better results with my new workout plan.

    I do 6 sets of flat and 6 on incline then I do 5 sets of chest fly. I work it only once a week though.
    Hit the muscle into submission. It won't have any choice but to grow.

    I do 4-6 sets for chest, but I do 4 sets for shoulders and 3 tricep sets the same day. All very high intensity, minimal rest. Usually takes 30-40mins.

    Ah, guys, but are you giving the numbers of your WORKING SETS?
    I do 3 sets twice a week but I mean working sets, I do other sets at lower weight as warm up but I don't count them.

    btw why do i see skinny guys wasting their time on flyes and Cable cross overs? These are shaping excerises and unless you have a good amount of mass on your chest they're a waste of time. Focus on building mass especially when your chest is nothing special. Incline presses, flat presses, Dips etc.

    I do 3 sets twice a week but I mean working sets, I do other sets at lower weight as warm up but I don't count them.
    I do something like this, its not eaxactly the same order every week but its along these lines.

    Mon - Shoulders/Light tris
    Tue - Legs/Light bis
    Wed - Rest
    Thur - Chest/Tris
    Fri - Cardio
    Sat - Back/Bis
    Sun - Rest (Might go for a swim)

    One to two rest days a week doesnt really mean your missing out. Your body needs rest, You probaly already know that doing to much will give bad or no results. Its no good anyone giving you a routine and telling you to do exactly that. Its trial and error.

    For a warm up i just do 20-30 reps with 20kg (10kg each side) on the bar.
