    Best way to get pecks?!

    I want to build up my chest and get good pecks, what are the best exercises to use?

    And also are protien shakes any good, or just a waste of money?

    Thanx

    well, the common exercise for chest is bench press with a barbell or dumbells. both variations are good, try to switch them up once in a while. throw in some incline or decline bench too.

    chest dips (wider grip) are also good. ive said it before, but i dont think that dips get the credit they deserve.

    as for protein shakes, see the discussion in the bodybuilding forum.

    Agreed. The flat bench press, in my mind, is the best overall chest builder hands down. My chest grew VERY well by using the following workout,

    Upperbody:
    Bench pressx4 (8-10 reps)
    Babell Rowsx5
    Military Pressx2
    Barbell Curlsx1

    Lowerbody
    Squatx5
    SLDLx5


    I don't believe you will achieve the best growth off of the new age HIT, "hit the muscle with all you have, then rest it for a week" business.
    Things to keep in mind.
    ---Compounds. Bench and incline bench press, dips (not all in the same workout, however)
    ---Don't over do it. 4-6 sets done twice per week should be enough. You can tweak the volume for changing rep ranges, of course.
