What is the best exercise for putting on mass on your pecs?
In my opinion, chest dips with loads and chains
Here is what you need to know.
1. For optimal pectoral recruitment lean forward. A more upright position tends to recruit a greater percentage of triceps contribution.
2. Chains help match the strength curve better. Adjust the chains so that they are folded on the floor in the bottom position.
3. The best way to tie an additional load is a tree climbing belt where you attach a loading pin. Now let’s talk about how to add additional load. Weighted vest can compress the nerves, so the best thing for the average gym member to use to add load is a dipping belt. But what I use in my facilities is a tree-climbing belt and a chain.
A new climbing belt can cost up to three hundred dollars, but you can get one on eBay for less that 10 dollars, Mike Bystol got me on for 99 cents. He is the master Ninja of eBay. With a tree climbing belt the weight is equally distributed, and they’re much sturdier than a dipping belt. You can add 140 kg to it and not feel any pressure on your hips.
For dips, I recommend between 5 to 12 sets, of 3 to 20 rep, depending on your level of strength and neurotransmitter make-up.
