The Incredible Hulkstress Chest Workout

The Incredible Hulkstress Chest Workout

Total Workout Time: 12 minutes
Total Calories Burnt Per Set: 119 calories

Women spend so much time focusing on trying to get a nice butt and a lean tummy that they forget about their chest. If you’re still associating chest workouts with big, bulky bodybuilders, think again. Focusing on developing your chest helps to achieve muscular symmetry. This is important as you don’t want lagging body parts. Aesthetically, chest workouts help to burn excess fat and firm up the upper body.

Directions:

  • Complete all of the repetitions on a single exercise before moving on to the next one.
  • Do not take a break between exercises.
  • Once you complete the list, take a 2 to 3-minute break.
  • Complete the workout two more times.
