A hardgainer is a person who metabolizes fast and one who does not easily build muscle mass. Most skinny people are hardgainer’s and more often than not, gaining weight is a problem for them. To develop a hardgainer chest seems like a daunting task. However, there are hardgainer chest workouts that are effective for massive and quick growth.
The chest muscle is one single muscle called the pecs or pectorals. Though a single muscle, the pecs has different regions or areas that need to be “addressed” or worked-out specifically. What are these areas? A hardgainer chest workout must target the upper chest, the outer chest, the inner chest, the bottom chest and the middle chest.
Different strokes for different folks. Meaning, there are a lot of hardgainer chest workouts that you can test for yourself. It is best for you to try out each combination workout and see what works for you as no two people will have the same reaction to a set of workout.
A routine for a hardgainer chest workout is 6 -10 reps (repetitions) of 3 sets of incline dumbbell press, flat dumbbell press, pec-deck machine and incline dumbbell flyes.
Another hardgainer chest workout is doing super sets and drop sets. Super set is when you complete one exercise and then go to complete a related exercise after a set. A drop set is reducing the weight by 20% after the initial set then a reduction of another 30% for the third set done without resting.
A sample workout is doing 10-12 reps of 2 sets of barbell bench press super set with 2 sets of 12-15 incline dumbbell flyes. Follow with dumbbell incline press, 2 sets of 10-12 super set with flat dumbbell flyes of 12-15 reps of 2 sets. Next, do a drop set of pullovers of 10-12. Finish with 2 sets of push-ups.
