THE COACH PERSONAL TRAINING by Norbert Simonis

Your chest muscle is made up of the pectoralis major and the pectoralis minor.

Which is why they’re often abbreviated as pecs.

This muscle group spreads across from your shoulders to the breast bone.

The pectoralis major Is as you might have guessed the bigger of the two and helps flex the shoulder joint, while moving your arm toward and across the chest.

The pectoralis minor is smaller and found underneath the pectoralis major.

Its job is to help pull the Shoulder forward and down.

As you probably know there are countless chest exercises.

So for now I will stick with the most common and important ones.

For compound exercises we have the barbell bench press which you can do normal so flat, incline and decline dumbbell bench press.

Again normal incline and decline push ups and chest dips.

These trained not only a chest but also triceps and shoulders.

Chest isolation exercises include the pec deck dumbbell flys and cable flys.

As a beginner I suggest you focus on barbell and dumbbell bench pressing and build up strength over time.

A common mistake is to do dozens of sets of isolation exercises especially cable flights because they look cool.

So when you see someone at the gym hogging the cable tower,

because they need to hit their chest from multiple angles,

you can usually tell that they have no idea what they’re doing.

The Perfect Pre Workout Meal

Once you know you’re getting all of your total macros right for the day.

Both your pre and post workout meal are the most important meals of the day.

And not your breakfast like many people believe.

Let’s first talk about pre workout nutrition.

Its main function is to fuel the workout itself and maximize your performance throughout.

Sounds simple right.

That’s because it is.

Unfortunately the fitness world has really overall complicated this and many gurus will sell you super specific recommendations or products that really don’t make a difference.

Let’s now cut through all of this nonsense and figure out exactly what you should be eating before your workout.

Like I said before this meal is meant to fuel your workout.

Adjusting Your Diet For Weight Loss

Now that you know how to bulk let’s look at the perfect cutting diet.

The most important thing you need to understand when wanting to lose weight is that there is a big difference between losing weight and losing body fat.

The former is a lot easier than the latter.

If you cut your calorie intake in half today you would definitely lose a lot of weight fast.

However much of that loss would also consist of lean muscle mass which you don’t want.

Now the science behind weight loss is pretty straightforward.

It’s calories in versus calories out.

This means that how much you eat will be a lot more important than what you eat.

Unfortunately the rules for losing body fat are a little more complicated.
