The BEST HOME CHEST WORKOUT (NO EQUIPMENT NEEDED)

The BEST HOME CHEST WORKOUT (NO EQUIPMENT NEEDED)


– [Chris] What’s up, elite Thenx athletes? It’s Chris Heria, welcome to
another video official Thenx. Today I’m gonna be showing you the best body weight, home chest workout, no equipment needed. Let’s get started. (drum and bass music) Alright, so you’re probably thinking you need to lift heavy
to build a bigger chest. And lifting weights will definitely help but you can also build mass and size using your own body weight. And I’m gonna show you how to
do that with today’s workout. Now first off, muscle
growth occurs when you tear and break down your muscle fibers during an exercise or a workout routine. Once broken down, then
they need to repair. And as they repair back together, they repair with thicker and stronger muscle cells and fibers. That’s actually called hypertrophy. And in order to maximize
your muscle growth, you must provide your
body with enough fuel so that it can begin
the repairing process. Which is why nutrition plays a big part. If you have enough protein
and you have enough sleep. These two things will greatly
help your repairing process. Now the reason why weights is very effective for building muscle, is because it’s very effective
for breaking down muscle and tearing muscle fibers. Allowing your muscles to
fatigue a whole lot sooner. But when you don’t have any weight or when you don’t have
any more weight to go up, the way that you reach fatigue
and tear your muscle fibers is by extending the time under tension that your muscles are contracting for. So that means longer holds
and more repetitions. The time under tension from the increase in repetitions and holds
are gonna cause damage to your internal muscle fibers just like when you increase
weight when you’re lifting. Then the muscle repairing
process can begin, which will grow and increase
the size of your muscle cells. Building bigger and more solid muscle. And this is why this is
the best home chest workout for those of you who that don’t have a gym or any equipment at all and that are still trying
to build solid muscle. It’s not about just training
hard, but also training smart. Knowing not just how to
train but what to train for. And during this chest workout
we’re gonna be engaging all the areas of our chest. Our upper chest, our mid
chest, lower section, inner chest and outer chest. We’ll even be isolating each
pec and throwing in different techniques and elements which
will maximize and increase the results of your chest
and your chest workout. So let’s get right into this,
we have eight exercises. The first exercise is
just regular push ups. So this is an exercise you’ll
already wanna have mastered if you’re gonna start this routine. But we’re gonna keep our body straight from our heel to our shoulder. We’re gonna keep our hips tight, tucked. And when we come down
we’re gonna come down slightly forward and come back up. Make sure to engage your core
and breathe the whole time. Let’s go for 20. We’re gonna be doing high reps because we really want
to reach hypertrophy and tear those muscle fibers. (drum and bass electronic music) (sigh) Alright, nice little warm up. So the next exercise we have
is gonna be a 90 degree hold. This is gonna be a Isometrix position. Isometrix are a great way to build muscle as it pumps a lot of
blood into your muscle the longer you keep a muscle contracted or maintain that holding position. So we’re gonna go with a 15 second hold. If you can’t hold for the full 15 seconds, cumulate that time with the
minimum amount of rest possible. For example, try three 90
degree holds for 5 seconds each. Alright, we’re gonna go for it. For this exercise, I like to
start from a push up position. Come all the way down,
keeping your core tight so that your hands are at your waistline. You wanna hold this
position and if you can, lean forward enough so that
your feet come off the ground. (drum and bass electronic music) Alright, perfect. Next one we’re gonna get
into is push ups in a circle. Now this exercise is really good for your outer and inner chest. And you’re actually gonna
be isolating one pec as you go from one push up to the other. So this is a great exercise. Let’s go eight to the left
and then eight to the right. Keep the core tight. Push up, let’s go into
a diamond, open, closed. (drum and bass electronic music) Oh, alright, I think I did a little extra. But next, we have archer push ups. And let me know you
how I like to do these. Now this exercise is gonna
isolate your pec a lot more and with that intense stretch
you’re gonna be tearing deep into those muscle fibers. So let’s go into a wide push up position. Now, choose one arm you
wanna go down on first. And keep that other arm
as straight as you can. I like to do one side first. (drum and bass electronic music) And then go for the other. (drum and bass electronic music) And then I like to come back to the top and I like to do one one each side to really make sure I hit the hypertrophy. (drum and bass electronic music) Whoo! Alright, you should
definitely start feeling that right about now. Next exercise we’re gonna go
into is definitely a killer. It’s gonna be explosive negative push ups. A little story about this exercise, one time I did a workout routine with explosive negative
push ups, just 10 reps. And the next day I was flying through normal explosive pushups for 30 reps. So I had to throw this
exercise into this routine. Let’s for 10. So you wanna come down as slow
and controlled as you can. And then you wanna explode
as hard as you can. (drum and bass electronic music) Whoo! Yeah, that one’s
definitely a killer. Next, we’re gonna be doing
incline diamond push ups. I’m gonna add a little technique to it, so check this out. Diamond, incline. Keep your body straight
just like a push up from your heel to your
shoulder come down, elbows in, right back out maintaining form. When you get to the top though, this time I want you to have
the outer part of your hands, try to come up and touch
each other, just like that. Now, as you can see, when
I do that, it squeezes and engages my upper pecs. When we do these reps,
do them just like that. We’re gonna go for at least 15 but you really want to create hypertrophy, do as many as you can. If you could do 20, even better. Let’s go for it. (drum and bass electronic music) Whoo! Next we’re gonna
go for elevated push ups. Put your feet elevated, keep the form. Let’s go for 20. (drum and bass electronic music) Whoo! Oh, if you weren’t fatigued before, you should definitely be fatigued now. And that’s why I have the last exercise to really tear those deep muscle fibers and increase that time under tension. We’re gonna go for just one push up. 30 seconds going down
and 30 seconds going up. Let’s go for it. (slow drum and synth music) Remember to breathe the whole entire time. And do not break form, no matter what. Engage everything, contract. (drum and bass electronic music) Then we have the last move. Three more rounds to go
and that will complete the best body weight home chest work out. No equipment needed. And as you can see, it’s just round one and I’m already pumped. So I’m gonna go ahead
and finish this routine. But thank you guys, so much, for watching. If you enjoyed the video

    Don't you think keeping you're hands a bit wider improves the quality of chest exercise? What your do is much more improves biceps and triceps

    Never asked for likes before but let's see how much y'all hate me, 1 like and I will do 1 full set. If I get an absurd amount I will keep tally and just do them daily until complete or until I delete comment.

    Suppose a person can't do as many as you…i.e. me 😔…do you just do what you can until you're able to get high reps?

    Keep in mind tho this is not for beginners some of the exercises might be too Hard for someone who just started calisthentics so like exercise No2 a 90 degree Hold try to make it easier by putting your legs on the wall or the 5th exercise negative explosive pushups try to do those on your knees and the last one is the 1 minute hold try to divide the hold for example 2 rounds of 30 seconds 15 seconds down 15 up and it will be easier for you 😉

    I just went back to school earlier this week, I am finishing up my grade 12, I’m a year late, I was supposed to graduate but I started working demoltion. I was gaining muscle for the summer, since I got nothing to do, this is helping me keep what little muscle I have, (I’m tall and slender as hell, I’m 5’10/2 and I weight 120) but we all have a start somewhere. I’m also inked up so my tattoos are going to warp a bit…

    Your videos are very helpful my friend, thank you very much for sharing your advice. Download the app but it's only in English. It would be great if some languages ​​such as Spanish were added. Greetings from Uruguay
