pre exhaustion chest workout

This workout involves doing an exercise that isolates the larger pectorial muscles first. This keeps the triceps from getting tired before you can effectively work your chest.

1. Dumbbell Flys: (Do this first)

Execution: Sit down on a flat bench with a dumbbell in each hand. Then lie back, keeping the dumbbells close to your chest. Lift the dumbbells over your chest by extending your arms. Maintain a slight bend in your elbows. Keep your hips and shoulders flat on the bench and your feet on the floor. Lower the dumbbells to the sides of your body in an arc-like motion. At the lowest point, your bent elbows should be on a horizontal plane even with the bench. Slowly bring the weights back up over your chest in an arc. The bend in your elbows should stay the same throughout the exercise.

2. Dumbbell Press:
