Bodybuilding Exercise : Chest

The desire for a bigger, better-developed chest is perhaps the greatest motivator for men to strength train. It somehow symbolizes heroism and male virility. Women, too, can benefit from chest training. Although it won't increase the size of your breasts (they are mostly fat tissue), it will create the appearance of a fuller and more shapely chest.

Strong chest muscles are advantageous in many sports. These muscles are involved in all forward and upward-reaching actions �e.g. in rugby tackling and grabbing an opponent- and are also used in throwing and hitting movements - e.g. during forehand drives in tennis and squash; when throwing the ball overhead in netball, basketball and volleyball; and throwing the discus, shot-put and javelin. A strong chest is also advantageous in swimming (breaststroke) and several gymnastic disciplines.
