Moobs, the modern day name for man boobs, can ruin the look of any shirt and turn men into shrinking violets when it comes to sunbathing. Great pecs are what we all want and before you stop reading, these exercises are for women too who want to have a toned chest.
A tight, toned chest is a great asset for the summer for everyone and so here's how to tone your pecs.
Wide arm press ups
The original chest exercise and still one of the best.
The standard press up works both chest and triceps and by moving the position of your hands you can choose which area works the most. The wide arm position makes the chest work more.
Start with your regular press up position with your chest above your hands
Step your hands out so their wider apart than your shoulders
Bend your arms and lower your chest and shoulders almost to the ground
Keep your stomach tight
Straighten your arms to return to the start position
Repeat x 15
Lie face up with your knees bent and feet flat
Hold a pair of dumbbells above your chest
Maintain a very slight bend in your arms throughout this movement
Keep your tummy tight
Slowly lower the weights towards the floor
Just before your arms touch the floor, squeeze your chest muscles to lift the weights back to the start position
Repeat x 15
At the top of each movement make sure the weights are over your chest and not above your head
